    Feel pulling in testicles w/ KB swings ?

    My first block today after warm up was a pyramid KB swing (5x50-10x45-15x40-20x35-25x30-20x35-15x40-10x45-5x50). About halfway through I began feeling a pulling in my left nut and decided to stop. First time I've ever felt anything other than muscle soreness w/ KB swings. Searches online didn't turn up anything so I'm guessing that this is somewhat unusual? Likely bad form? Or should have started w/ a bit less weight on the front end and ended w/ the heavier?

    BTW, I'm 60 (forum software wants me to be 50 no matter what).

    Thanks,

    It does sound unusual. Unless you were wearing some new tighter underwear, you may want to get that checked out if it continues since it could be unrelated to the KB swings other than being aggravated by it.

    **Warning: I am just a random internet weirdo and not competent or medically qualified**

    Testicle discomfort is much more likely that other bodyparts to be the result of referred pain - i.e. pain from somewhere else being felt in your nut/nuts instead of the place where the problem really is.

    https://www.urologygroupvirginia.com...esticular-pain
    "...There may also be referred pain to the testis, which means there is pain that originates elsewhere, but is felt in the testis. This can occur if there is a pinched nerve in the back or in the groin area...."

    So it might be something in your back or groin. Just rest and take it easy, look after your back!
    If the pain doesn't go away, or keeps coming back - then get it checked by your doc
    Faith in Jesus first and faith in squats second.
    Then other details will start to slot themselves into place.

    Thanks all. @OldFartTom may have nailed it.

    About 10 years ago I had a few instances of extreme (like direct hit from someone's boot) nut pain. Docs couldn't figure it out. Solution was that every time it happened I had to get to an ER for a shot of Dilaudid.

    Over dinner one night w/ some friends (she head of medicine for 3M, he an orthopedist) my wife decided to share with them my nut problem. Orthopedist said 'L2' without even thinking. Turned out it was a pinched nerve in my L2 vertebrae. The new and improved solution is to just be very cautious with it (correcting it would be extremely risky).

    I'd totally forgotten about that. Thank YOU!

    Thanks,

    Look up these terms, then go see your doctor

    1)varicocele

    2)testicular torsion

    The first one can give you a vague feeling of dragging your nut,.....the second one can be anything from mild to severe drop to your knees pain.

    When I was a young man I had the second happen, and I ended up having emergency surgery...I was away at school at the time...everyone knew about it and goofed on me for years!

    I used to get the varicocele often years ago...does not bother me now..I was doing more mountain biking then.

    BTW I still have two properly functioning nuts.

    Not sure. I'm not qualified to give medical assessments on scrotums.

    But speaking of nuts, I had my yearly doctor's appointment last week. He grabbed my ballz and told me to cough.

    So I said,

    "Doc. Taxation is theft."
    This above all..
    To thine ownself be true..
    And it must follow, as the night the day..
    Thou can'st not then be false to any man..

    One of my friends is a physiotherapist. Quite a while ago, I'd injured my back and I asked for his advice. I don't remember the letter and number of the vertebrae, but he told me what disc was bulging and added that it would also make my left testicle ache. I hadn't mentioned to him that my left testicle was hurting, because I didn't connect it with the back problem. It was then that I realized he absolutely knew what he was talking about.

    I swing first thing in every workout. I recommend pyramiding up in weight and down in repetitions, rather than up in repetitions and down in weight and then reversing the order like you do.

    As you originally thought, the culprit is poor form. There's a ton of instruction about swings on the www and most of it is bull****. One of the finest instructions I've ever come across is right here on Bodybuilding dot com: https://www.bodybuilding.com/content...ell-swing.html
    It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society.

    I feel like I am the only person that love KBs but hate swings.

    Pavel on Joe Rogan I thought gave great advise when he said his minimalist workout is swings and dips. His reason? His body likes swings and dips.

    My body does not like swings so I don't do them. My body likes KB power cleans so much more that I haven't done a swing in years.

    If you go by what Tsatsouline says, he also said "I would argue that the kettlebell swing is the most beneficial exercise anybody can do".

    Before I perfected the technique, I was ify on the exercise, too. A little too much weight before you're ready for it, coupled with a moment of inattention, can really hurt your back.
    You can't do heavy explosive swings mindlessly. That, plus the fact that it's a stellar warmup for the deadlift, is why I do it first in my weightlifting routine.

    First post a video of your swings.
    Maybe someone can see a technical issue that may contribute to your issue.
    I agree with the above statement that testicle pain can be referred to something other than that.
    Hernia or something intra abdominal related.
    This may be where you need to see a medical professional possibly sports related for an accurate answer.
    I wouldn't continue until you find out whats causing it.
