  1. Barbell Full OH Squat/snatch Mobility

    Does anyone have any good resources on developing and maintaining the necessary mobility for a barbell overhead squat? I've had a recent idea that getting to a point where this position is viable and comfortable and then maintaining it could work as some form of mobility MED for me, due the ROM...

    Barbell Balancing the Daily Dose Deadlift plan with other strength training

    I'm in the test week of the 5TRM back squat programme, and intending to start the Daily Dose Deadlift plan next week. I'm wondering how best to balance the rest of my training with the programme. At the moment I'm lifting 3 days a week – squats every session (as per the 5TRM programme) followed...
  7. Bear Exercise Selection

    I'm currently on my way to timeless Simple and wanting to add some size and strength when finished (187cm and ~70kg), so the Bear came to mind. As we all know, the book suggests DL and Presses but I was wondering if other exercises would work as well? In this T-Nation Article ( Customized...

  11. Barbell Young martial artist wanting to return to barbell after discovering love for kettlebell

    Hello Strongfirst. For some background, I am a 19 year martial artist with 15 years of training in kyokushin karate and now a beginner in BJJ. In high school, I got into lifting through stronglifts 5x5 and became obsessed with fitness and lifting heavy. In a year I hit a 290lbs squat for 5 sets...
  12. Barbell Heavy singles and greasing the groove every day?

    I need to get my repetitions for push-ups and pull-ups up for the military but I'd also like to increase my strength on the Bench, Squat, and Deadlift. I came up with the idea that I'd warm up to a heavy single for a barbell movement and continue to grease the groove pushing or pulling for the...

    Kettlebell Strength followed by Power...How Long?

    I know that the ideal is to train power first then train strength, but that assumption is largely based on contiguous training. My question is, if one trains strength around 10-12 in the morning how much later could one train power for it to be fully or almost fully effective?

  15. Barbell Barbell Daily Practice/S&S equivalent

    Apologies if this topic has already been covered, the search function did not seem to throw anything up... Curious as to peoples thoughts on a daily barbell practice, similar at least in theory to a daily S&S practice. What has always attracted me (and I'm sure many others) to S&S is its...
  16. Bodyweight Can you grease the groove push-ups and bench press at the same time?

    My goal with push-ups is to gain reps and build muscular endurance, and while I've found success with greasing the groove, I have abandoned bench pressing so it doesn't interfere with my recovery. But I'd love to increase my strength on the bench press. Pavel Tsatsouline recommends only...

  18. Kettlebell Kettlebell training for strength and barbell training for hypertrophy at the same time?

    Is it possible to gain both strength and size by using kettlebells and barbells at the same time? I apologize if this is a silly question, but from what I gather so far it seems like kettlebells are great for gaining strength without completely destroying your muscles in the process. I wonder if...
  19. Kettlebell Can an alternating barbell and kettlebell routine grow muscle mass and train general athleticism?

    The idea I have is I'd train 3 days a week Mon, Wed, Fri, and alternate between training with barbells for hypertrophy and training with kettlebells for general athleticism and strength. With barbells, I'd perform deadlifts, bench presses, rows, squats, military press. So far I'm planning to...

    Hi, first of all a big thanks to the community. I already got a lot of value from reading articles and forum posts. Over the years I experienced over and over again that my best progress has ALWAYS been when I just followed a program and stopped thinking about modifying it for my "special...
