    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    Yeah kettle snatches are a favourite of mine as well! I also like doing kettlebell swings, good for the hamstrings and lower back.

    a typical session for me would be around 40 mins

    - Turkish get ups - 3 sets of 10 on each side
    - Kettlebell snatches - 3 sets of 15 on each side
    - Kettlebell swings - 3 sets of 25
    - wide grip chins with added weight - 3 sets
    - Squats OR Deadlifts 3 sets of 10
    - core cable rotations 3 sets of 12
    - hanging leg raises - 3 sets of 10

    I just have short rest periods to keep the heart rate up!

    Used to do a lot of weights but had to lay off due to a back injury and switched to running. Running is its own beast now, marathon training is not exactly compatible with judo or kendo. I do have great cardio though...

    Yeah running is good, but I don't have the motivation for it. the only time I run now is when i'm being chased haha. I mainly do circuits like the above to strengthen my heart and lungs. I will probably have to run at some point though as I want to compete in BJJ so my fitness needs to be better!

    I think you're reading me wrong - if I wanted to get serious about competitive martial arts, especially judo, I would run way less and get back in the gym. Maybe like three 5k runs a week plus intervals would be more than enough cardio and not lean you out to the point of losing strength. Last summer at peak training I was doing 80-90 km per week and if I were to tackle another marathon I would up that volume, it wasn't enough. That is more or less the anti-judo training program.

    Let me ask a slightly differing question, if there was only 1 exercise specifically you could do what would it be?

    Mine is Turkish get ups with kettlebells. They literally destroy you

    Sent from my HTC One using Bullshido - No BS MMA mobile app
    If I had to pick one it would be deadlifts. I was thinking about this recently. Im well into my forties. I recently gave up jiu jitsu because of to many injuries. I am an average grappler that has a handfull of techniques that I do well. my cardio is not that great and I only weigh about 185 Pounds. Also I have had a lot of injuries. Yet I still work in a bar and manage to do just fine when having to defend myself against bigger, younger and sometimes technically better fighters. In my 20s I was a very good competitive power lifter. I still deadlift every week. I believe deadlifts and basic jiu jitsu lets me still do what I do.

    No, they figuratively destroy you. Literally would result in much less typing from you. I agree that they are a great exercise - whole body workout with a fairly light weight so low risk. I used dumbells, not sure how kettlebells would be much different. There's a video around of a guy doing them squat-style with a 135 lb barbell. Now that's insane.
