  2. Kettlebell 1H Swing Form Check

    Hello all! This week I am finishing my 4th week of Timeless Simple, averaging 5x per week. I should have done this a long time ago, but would you review my form and let me know what I can do better? @Steve Freides, if I unknowingly am breaking a rule or procedure, please let me know! Thanks...
  3. Barbell Deadlift Form Feedback

    I'm currently doing the Modified DeLorme in Pavel's Beyond Bodybuilding book, which is why I'm using 100 lbs, instead of 135 (my gym doesn't have any bumper plates). Other than that, is there anything wrong with my deadlift form?

    Kettlebell Humblingly Weak

    So I recently succumbed to not just injuries but the need to get some help. Shoulder problems just weren't resolving themselves with rest and care. Despite a long history of bad experiences with physical therapists, I went to see one. I am glad I did. She identified that I basically didn't...
  5. Kettlebell Form Check Request

    Hey everyone. Found kettlebells this year due to some nagging injuries with barbell work. Planned on just a few weeks with my cheap adjustable KB but I was bitten by the bug and felt compelled to keep going. Purchased S&S, 24kg, 32kg, and committed to reaching Simple before moving on. Spent...

    Kettlebell Double bell Form check

    I get back to do Clean, Jerk and Squat with double 25k, usually 1 Clean-1 jerk-1 squat then increase reps of clean or jerk or squat to 2 or 3 reps, then get back to 1 (ladder). Because this is nearly the only training that I do it this day so I want to make sure the form looks right. Any idea...

    Kettlebell 2H Swing Form Check

    Hi everyone, just started out with KB training recently and would love some critique on my form for 16 KB 2H swings.

  9. Kettlebell Squat, Deadlift - Form Check

    Hi, I'm Alex, I've been practicing with kettlebells for almost a year with some months off because of a mild left shoulder injury and problems with hemmorrhoids. While on pause I did the stretches from S&S and shoulder focused excercises for recovery, I've also been to a physical therapist a...

    Kettlebell Form Check Get Up 16 kg & Question

    Hi there fellow strong first aficionados! I would really appreciate your opinions on my turkish get-up form. The only part that feels uncomfortable to me is the transition from elbow to back on the way back (especially on the left side). I always slide around on the floor to create some space...
  11. Barbell Squat form check

    Hello all, Hoping to get a form check for my Squat. Here is my previous form check. The most important advice was that I needed to slow down and control my descent to consistently reach depth. Another issue was that my heels were coming up at the bottom of the squat (probably due to my...
  12. Barbell Power-clean form check please!

    Hi everyone, So I just started doing power-cleans today, and my form looks egregious. I would like some feedback please. There are too many things wrong with this. From what I can see: I am not jumping high enough; I am yanking the bar with my hands as the bar comes in contact with my mid...

    Hello everyone, Can I get a Squat form check please? I am able to see three problems (please tell me if you see something else). (1) Sometimes my squats feel incredibly hard, and when this happens, I don't reach full depth for some of my reps. Today (Dec 13, 2020) I lifted 220 lbs for 3s x 5r...
  15. Barbell Deadlift form check

    Hello everyone, I am new here. Can I get a DL form check please? My lower back seems to round a bit immediately right after I pull the weight off the floor. The rounding isn't as bad as it looks like on a cat, but it does make me feel like my back isn't tight enough. What should I do? Thanks...
