    Kettlebell Front Squat or Double Suitcase Deadlift

    I am planning an A+A / AGT training cycle. Overhead movements are contraindicated for my sad old shoulders, this rules out Snatch and Jerk which are a common prescription.

    Other/Mixed Adding KBs to a Beginner LP Progression

    Hey all, I am currently doing the Greyskull LP program, and specifically the Phraks Variant - very similar to Starting Strength 3x5.

    I'm getting ready to start Pavel's audacious and awesome (yep, I'm dead serious...the guy's programs are epic). I also just started Deadlifts (I stopped benches & dips as Pavel recommends we do not do those in conjunction with 1-arms), and his pull-up program. My question: 1. Should I do the...
