48 kg One Arm Swings 10 x 5/5, hacks,sandbag pushups, side delts

This was a great session. Continued "following" the bell in the back swing more and waiting longer to accelerate and the power and height was the best ever for a 48 kg swing. The weight felt light, grip was easy and no hand issues at all. The arc is a tad longer but far smoother and more powerful.

Instead of trying to use the hips more to catapult the bell ( I thought that was going to be a great cue but it's not the one for me ) I'm focusing on using the momentum of the bell to create the hip drive.
I used to do it this way and some how lost it . This is definitely it. Head stays down at lockout as before, too.
