I don't agree at all. Its the most basic KB exercise there is.

the fact that you say so "could" mean you are doing it wrong :wink: i used to consider it the most basic kb exercise as well, until i attended a course led by a pro. it's not what it looks like :D

Of course there is a lot of technique. It is a lot of technique in bench press also but I still think people who don't have great technique can and should do bench press. And doing 1000 depends mainly on the weight of the kettle bell.

It *is* simple, if you understand what's supposed to be doing the work. Took me 5 minutes to learn from an RKC guy at my old gym.

For me 1000 with a 24 would be easier than with a 16, because a 16 is too easy to overpower and thus you don't get the benefit of the bell loading the hamstrings.

I also happened to notice you've got a floor in your appartment so you could also do the burpee challenge (after your comp of course).
