KB timed sets – switching the lead hand = more volume

Tonight I decided to lead with my left (weaker) hand in the timed sets. The result was I was able to do higher volume but with less effort. I noticed the biggest difference on swings.

If I lead with my right I’m already fatigued before switching hands, plus my left hand is a little sweaty. Those things combined make the work much harder, it all felt easier doing it the other way round.

The workout:
