    Kettlebell In case you missed my press article from last week.

    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
  2. Kettlebell Questions regarding strength development as a teen martial artist

    Hey! I'm M/17, and fairly new to kb's. I have read S&S a couple of times but don't have any bells yet.

    Kettlebell Beginning Simple and Sinister Questions

    Hello SF, I have been practicing my prying goblet squats, swings and naked get ups everyday for about a week now. I had a friend of mine who was an RKC check my form and he said all good! I have been reading and re-reading Simple and Sinister 2.0 plus reading the articles here on...
  5. 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? 😆...
  6. 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...

    Kettlebell Supplementary Training to Enhance S&S?

    Hi everyone. I’ve been training S&S everyday by the book for over a month now, and I was wondering if anyone has any ideas of supplementary training to enhance my S&S training? I’m not asking out of boredom, but as a way to enhance my current S&S training. Some background knowledge about me, I’m...
  14. Kettlebell Kettlebell training for strength and barbell training for hypertrophy at the same time?

    Is it possible to gain both strength and size by using kettlebells and barbells at the same time? I apologize if this is a silly question, but from what I gather so far it seems like kettlebells are great for gaining strength without completely destroying your muscles in the process. I wonder if...

    Kettlebell Starting to do Q&D, Doing with Jumpropes + Other Questions

    Apologies in advance for the long post! It's been a long time since I posted here. Two years has passed(I think). Basically, I went from doing S&S, but not able to progress from 13.4kg bells since I didn't have the budget, to getting a gym membership and moving to 16-20kg swings and 16kg TGUs...

    I've got 2 x 16, 2x24 and 2x32 bells. I've no plans of buying intermediate bells for financial reasons and lack of room. Currently nearing the end of STRONG with double 24:s, "Slow and steady". Hoping for a new 10RM after that. I'm glancing ahead, curious as to how to transition into heavier...

    Kettlebell Downstairs Neighbours

    Hi there, I am soon moving to a new apartment. I am currently doing the Simple and Sinister Training with 36kg. I am a bit worried about the noise for the downstairs neighbours when ending the one-arm swings (putting the kb down). However : It is a recent construction and fairly well...

    Kettlebell 24kg C+P Form Critique

    Lay into me please. This was my last rung on my heavy day 3x(1,2,3,4) 2x(1,2,3). I need to dial this in somehow. I feel like my first rep looks half decent because of the set up but the rest I can clearly see that I’m not hinging very well. To be honest I just don’t know HOW to get deeper in...
  20. Kettlebell Dumbbell swings?

    Hello. Long time lurker, first time poster here. I love this forum. I’m a huge fan of strength training, and the Strongfirst principles are right up my alley. I’ve recently re-developed an interest in kettlebell training after reading S&S. I’d really love to pursue the simple standard, but...
