Quasi Reverse Pyramid Training with Kettlebells

For the last two weeks I went for a single routine with a 24 kg Kettlebell:

  • 100 Alternating One Handed Kettlebell Swings
  • 10 Turkish Get-Ups (5 Left 5 Right)
  • 50 Goblet Squats (Holding the KB right under my chin)

50 proper goblet squats with a 24 kg back to back is hard for me, so I take micro breaks (~15-30 seconds) in between the following sequence: 25-15-10-5

Well, you might ask where is the RPT (Reverse Pyramid Training) in that? A RPT usually involves the usage of different weights not just decreasing numbers of reps, right?

This week (so far), I did the above 40% with a 32 kg Kettlebell and 60% with a 24 kg Kettlebell:

  • 40 A1H KB Swings 32 kg – 60 A1H KB Swings 24 kg
  • 2 TGUs Left 32 kg – 3 TGUs Left 24 kg – 2 TGUs Right 32 kg – 3 TGUs Right 24 kg
  • 20 Goblet Squats 32 kg (10 break 10) – 30 Goblet Squats 24 kg (15 break 10 break 5)

Feel the burn baby 🙂
