NOTES: Now I know why the Ruskies and Polanders are so damn strong. KBs kick your ass! I've only worked with them on occasion, but they're great. I was sucking wind after 30 sec of 50lb. swings, but I pushed through. I went to my wife's's a total yuppy palace, but they have KBs and a short 2" bar. Nothing else worth mentioning. The snatches felt great, and I was happy to get the 80lb. KB for 5 reps. I would have gone higher, but that's the biggest KB they've got.
