The Kettlebell Long Cycle

Wow the Kettlebell long cycle rocks. This is the clean & jerk done with two kettlebells for 10 minutes continuously. You don’t put them down but can kind of rest in the rack & overhead.

Of course it means there is no real rest for the full time. The top guys do this with two 40kg KB’s which is diabolical. I’m a beginner on long cycle but I really like it. I like it even more than one arm snatch.

I do get a better endorphin hit off snatch though.

This exercise is deceptively difficult. You may watch these guys doing it and think yeah I can do that. Well straight off the bat I doubt it. Here is a video of one of the sports top athletes passing out at 214 reps.

That’s Sergey Rachinskiy a top world champion.

Here is a good video showing proper form…

Here’s the main man Steve Cotter giving some long cycle instruction…
