During the pandemic I worked through Simple and Sinister. At this point I can comfortable complete all 100 swings and 10 TGUs with a 24 KG bell, and clean and press my 16 KG for reps. I’m still working on taming the arc and completing the workout for time. And at this time I only...
Some time ago I bought a bike, but had to sell a 40 kg bell, now I'm getting rid of the bike and want to buy a bell. The question is which one, 40kg, or 48kg? Currently practice Q&D with 32kg, and achieved Simple. What would you recommend?
today I hurt my tailbone while swinging the kettlebell. I suddenly felt a sharp pain on the bottom position of the swing. The same thing happend to me before, about two years ago. The pain went away after a couple of weeks, but my tailbone kept being fragile for quite a...
Hello all, in Enter the Kettlebell Pavel talks about using cloth fingerless gloves to protect the hands from calluses when training. The only ones I could find on amazon have rubber grips on the palms that I would think would make them hard to use. Does anyone have any suggestions for specific...
Hi guys! I’ve not posted on the forums for a month or two now so I hope everybody’s all good first and foremost!
I have recently looked through the NW book for the first time and I am looking at incorporating it into my training week. However, as effective as GTG is, I just don’t have the time...
Okay, so I love the Quick and the Dead training! I’ve been doing it almost exclusively during quarantine, and all this jazz with the virus. Now, I’m supposed to travel soon and I want to continue my training but don’t have the ability to take my kettlebell. What are some alternatives to the...

What do you think about mixing those principles of training:
-Everyday GTG on multiple exercises
Push-ups, dips, pull-ups, crunches, bw squats (pistols). The idea isn't to focus on one exercice, but to be active all the day by doing many easy sets of different exercises (far...
I'm wondering how to approach HIIT with only a Kettlebell, Swings in particular. I have 24 and 32 pairs and want to implement some HIIT into my training. What would be the best routine?
I was thinking about 2H Swings like in 10k program, but without strength exercises.
So, I’m not entirely new to kettlebells. I did them while in high school, but only sparingly and probably with bad form in hindsight.
I recently started up again. My brother had a 35 lb kettlebell that he never used, and I just started to do swings with it. Well, after about two months, and in...
I have decided to do the Reload barbell program, but I want to make sure I keep up with my conditioning.
