I'm going to guess that it doesn't matter that since when you do one, the other is by-product no matter the intent, its about visualization...
The reps matter as percentages of max effort (number of reps one does for max time that they can last: 10 minutes typically). Each athlete has to decide what time they can handle 70 or 80 percent of their max.
I guess since the premise of the sport is reps, that similar to weight lifting, the Russians/Bulgarians use a certain percentage base in what is considered "training" but on a max lift(weight) basis.
Now, about intensities and transition, thats a big discussion that I prefer in person. No sense on giving away free information when others charge money :D
It touches up on the discussion of why people are getting stuck(guys with 28 kgs and women with 20 kg).
Personally, I'm not stuck, just had some setbacks, (jaw surgery gone bad, mono, shoulder dislocation, hip injury) Now, back to the Ferrari comment, I stress that it behooves you to consider my active recovery clinic(more then just stretching and mobility).
And I don't do just kettlebells for my workouts...Many have said that they are great exercise and also compliment many things. As we get better and better at Athletics, we become that Ferrari(broken version).
