The KGB Method – Part 3

Putting it all together.
 
In parts 1 we looked loosely at how they days panned out.
 
Then through part 2 how you rotate the focus (daily or in a block of 3).
 
Below will be a brief example protocol you could potentially follow, however the main concept of this is to take away the idea of training different elements on different days.
 
The cycling or the movements and general focus of the training.
 
Finally it’s learning that just because you go to a gym or train that doesn’t mean you need to do body building style movements only.
 
^^ A trap many fall in to.
 
Okay, here we go.
 
– 3 on 1 off rotation
– Loading = go by feel or RM (rep max)
– Always leave 1-2 reps or something in the tank
– 2 lifts per session
– 20-45min per session (vary this each day)
– Rest as needed
 
Micro 1:
Day 1: Kettlebell – Fast
Day 2: Grappling – Slow
Day 3: Bodyweight – Flow
 
Micro 2:
Day 1: Kettlebell – Slow
Day 2: Grappling – Flow
Day 3: Bodyweight – Fast
 
Micro 3:
Day 1: Kettlebell – Flow
Day 2: Grappling – Fast
Day 3: Bodyweight – Slow
 
************************
 
Micro 1: 20-40min Sessions
 
Day 1: Kettlebell – Fast
 
A1 – Kettlebell Swing x 5-35 reps per set (p/s)
A2 – Kettlebell Shot-put x1-3 per arm (p/a)
 
 
Day 2: Grappling – Slow
 
A1 – Barbell Farmers Walk x20m, one bar each hand
A2 – Rope Climb* x1
 
*If no rope climb possible find something to climb 😂
 
Day 3: Bodyweight – Flow
 
A1 – Spiderman Crawl x20m
A2 – Inchworm/Down Dog x20m
 
Note down all the sets/reps you achieve, along with the loads used, remember though, you don’t need to keep the load the same each set, just saying.

Micro 2: 20-40min Sessions
 
Day 1: Kettlebell – Slow
 
A1 – TGU x1 (p/a)
A2 – Renegade Row x 3-5 (p/a)
 
Day 2: Grappling – Flow
 
A1 – Sand Bag Lunge Shoulder Carry x 100m (p/a)
 
Day 3: Bodyweight – Fast
 
A1 – Plyo Push Up x3-5
A2 – CMJ x2 + Bound Jump x3
 
************************
 
Micro 3: 20-40min Sessions
 
Day 1: Kettlebell – Flow
 
A1 – Long Cycle x3min blocks
 
Day 2: Grappling – Fast
 
A1 – Sled Push x20m
A2 – Arm Over Arm Pull x20m
 
^^ Push the sled out 20m, walk back, sit down pull it back to you.
 
Day 3: Bodyweight – Slow
 
A1 – Single Arm Push Up x3-5
A2 – Pistol Squat x3-5
 
^^ Pause at the bottom of each rep
 
Repeat the above for one or two more rotations before changing exercises/movements
 
The above lasts for a total of 12 days, giving you 36 days for a full 3x repeat of it, of 24 if you do it twice, the aim would be to do a little more than you did the previous time.
 
That plays on the principle of Density (work done per unit of time), I’ve written about those before, just do a search on here via the tab and you’ll find more detail on it.
 
************************
 
As you can see the concept is simple, the training varied and you can be assured that the results will be plentiful.
 
Now you have the basic skeleton you can take it away with you and start to apply it.
 
Enjoy,
Ross
