  1. Knee pain during double kettlebell front squats

    I've been doing DFW for a few months now - as of recently i've started to get some knee pain in the front middle of my left knee when doing the double kettlebell front squats.

    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.

    Kettlebell Pistol or Double Kettlebell Front Squat for Easy Strength?

    I'm going to be starting my first Easy Strength cycle tomorrow and am not sure on which squat to include: pistol or double kb front squat. My pistols are a bit rusty (bodyweight only at this point) and my starting weight for the double kb front squat would be a pair of 53#s, which are...
