  1. Barbell PTTP: Zercher Squats instead of Deadlifts?

    Hey All, Just wondering your thoughts about replacing the DL’s in PTTP with Zercher Squats? Goals are GPP with the plan to compete in the spring and fall TSC’s as a way to monitor progress. I have decided to follow Brett Jones article “To Every Season: A simple way to Structure A Year of...

    Kettlebell Q&D How often? (3x vs. everyday)

    Hello. I'm reading the forum for a while and like to salute all of you strong people! I started S+S in March 2020 with a 20kg and 26kg bell. Made progress pretty soon and love it all the way. I'm not about going any heavier. I'm like 70kg/ 154 lbs and I feel complete satisfied and pretty...

    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.

    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?

  8. 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...

    Hey all, Last week StrongFirst published my most recent article that details my experience on a press program I built around using only one medium sized kettlebell. I did the program due to work, time, and gear constraints. I hope you enjoy it! Get Stronger with One Kettlebell | StrongFirst
  10. Kettlebell Questions regarding strength development as a teen martial artist

  13. Kettlebell Definitive list of swing muscles?

    Greetings: In my internet ramblings, I'm finding conflicting graphics listing which muscles fire during swings. Of course, they all have glutes, etc., but some include certain muscles, while others do not. Can anyone point me to a source they trust on this matter? Ideally based on research? ...
  14. Kettlebell Swing form detail

    Assuming the hip hinge is explosive enough to raise the bell high enough, is one supposed to limit the height of their swing by a lat pull-down/decelerating action? Or is the "float" achieved by upward deltoid engagement? Background: I'm a skinny 5'7.5" and 130 lbs. I went to an SFG because I...
