What is the difference between kettlebell complex and kettlebell flow?
A kettlebell complex is a sequence of exercises that usually flow as well (between transitions) but can be repeated several times, for example, 3 snatch, 3 windmill, 3 TGU, 3 racked squats. A flow usually consists of exercises that flow from one into the other and consist just out of one repetition per exercise, for example, snatch into a windmill, into a TGU, into a racked squat, and can then be repeated on the same or other side.
