It might keep you interested since it's almost got that comp aspect that baseball has. From the things I've seen you would have fun with it. I know it's big out there but here you'd definitely compete.

This is pure evil

That's exactly what I'm missing, the competition aspect.

Since my schedule is kind of nuts now, that's part of why I joined a CF box. It's like having a lifting partner even when you don't.

I've found I push myself a LOT harder when the guys who are my level or above are there.

Some of us (maybe unfortunately) just need that to get ourselves motivated. Without that, I tend to slouch off.

completely agree man. Just having that person there is helpful. When I have a couple guys in my garage I just want to destroy them. I've always been competitive to the point of bordering "assh0le" status lol. Loosing is one of the worst things for me. For some reason when people are watching I tend to do better.

My second time doing DB swings. How is my form?

20 reps with 60lbs DB. Moved up from 55lbs, as it was not that challenging, did 160 reps with 60lbs DB, with 5 pull-ups and 5 dips in each round.

Yeah dude, you have got a long way to go with those. It's not something you just use your legs and pull up with your arms. Maybe just a slight bend in your legs but you don't bounce them and use that to propel the weight. It's more core, less arms and legs

It looks like you are just swinging the weight.

The majority of the force should come from your hips and butt. The weight (and your arms) should come up only because the momentum forces them to - it's not an arm or shoulder movement.

Try them again, but this time SQUEEZE your butt at the top of the movement. Your junk should be in front of the rest of your body.

Maybe his form just isn't very good, but it may be a problem if the weight forces you down into a lower position

yes. The hips produce the power. I would not dip down as far as she is though. I don't think that's necessary.

That's a good size kb. Nothing wrong with hinging that much.

I think with a heavy weight one needs to dip down that far because you need enough room to explode and lift the weight back up, otherwise, need to squat like how I was doing them.

On T nation site it turned out there 2 forms of doing KB swings, squat form and DL form (like the girl is doing them). The latter is more effective.

I never see people bend that far down. It way be ok but it makes the movement much longer.

Strength vs time. If you are going heavy with a kb, that's probably one of the last movements you want to try and beat the clock. It's a strength movement.
