Inspired by my friend and Kettlebell Sport coach Gregor Sobocan, this workout combines Long Cycle and Jerk into one set to provide you with a great conditioning workout.
When I think of people who have tons of knowledge about Kettlebell Sport and its training methodologies, Gregor Sobocan jumps to mind. Not only has he written a book about the training methods for Kettlebell Sport, but he has tried and tested numerous protocols of training on himself. Some of his workouts seem so masochistic, I’m not sure I would ever want to train with him (oh, who am I kidding, I’m totally masochistic too!). Despite all the crazy training, Gregor has achieved great results in competition, earning him the title of Master of Sport International Class. What I find more intriguing than his personal success in the sport, however, is that he has coached multiple athletes to Master of Sport and MSIC level as well.
