Kettlebell figure 8

Kettlebell figure 8's to failure

Using a heavy kettlebell (minimum weight 20 kilograms for men, 12 kilograms for women) make a figure 8 starting with the kettlebell hanging between legs that are slightly more than shoulder with apart, make a loop around one leg, bring it between legs and trade hands and circle the other leg. That is one rep. Establish a rhythm and go until you drop. No breaks/stopping allowed although you are welcome to change the pace. Formula is adjusted for weight of competitor and kettlebell.

    Ged, yours is not a poor second for sure. You actually did a harder version as you stayed bent over and were much smoother. As a multi world record holder you have done some endurence challenges I could not imagine. This comes from someone who onc by AndyWeaver on 5/2/2012 2:57:22 PM

    Magnificent effort at 242 reps. It really motivated me. I needed the motivation as I hadn't been on this site as much before you joined as too many people were not posting video's and I need the visual motivation of seeing someone else do it. by AndyWeaver on 5/2/2012 3:24:42 AM

    Video exceeded the YouTube limit so I broke it into two parts. First is about 15 minutes, actual video is over 18 minutes with 17 minutes of actual figure 8's. Some overlap of the two videos. by AndyWeaver on 5/2/2012 3:22:27 AM

  • profile pic Well done Ged, I figured you might come back and topple me. I like the competitiion. Not sure when but I will give this another go. Its a big number and will likely take at least 12 minutes to beat. It now has to go by time when I make the attempt, counting is to hard when I am in the zone so I just try to keep it steady. I will wear a heart rate monitor to see where it stays during the attempts. Feels like its north of 150 for the duration, we will see. Awesome number indeed mate. Keep up the good work. by AndyWeaver on 5/1/2012 9:50:00 PM

  • profile pic I was happy to survive my 20k trail race yesterday and decided it was time to get in the zone. Love the competition on this site as it motivates me to get fitter. Went for a specific time and ended up with 201 reps, and I was pumped after this one. by AndyWeaver on 4/29/2012 8:42:00 PM

    Another awesome display, you are the Ged-i-master on this site. I will try this again but not for a few days. It is getting up there where the pain lasts well after the event is over. Thanks for your praise, I am honored to give you a run for your by AndyWeaver on 4/27/2012 7:35:58 PM

  • profile pic Ged, I knew you would come back and put up a big number. Worthster and I have suffered back and forth on many a challenge, the competition makes us stronger. Glad to have you here to motivate me. Just as with Worthster there are many events I can't touch you guys but I will bust my butt and suffer like a dog trying most of them. I am sure Worthster is out buying a kettlebell as we speak. I look forward to seeing your suffering on the video, will serve as my motivation for the next attempt. Keep it up mate. by AndyWeaver on 4/27/2012 2:53:00 PM
