  8. What next sized kettlebell should I go to?

    I can do a good 100 straight reps of two handed kettlebell swings with a 55lb. I'm thinking of moving up. I like the swing, and sticking to that for now. Which size is the best to move to now? The 70lb? Possibly the 80lb?

  10. Need help — combining barbell with kettlebell training

    Hey, folks! I've been struggling to combine barbell and kettlebell training primarily due to schedule and logistical issues. Let me talk about the latter first — my gym doesn't have a bell heavier than a 20 kg. And I usually swing with a 36kg (two-handed) and 28 kg (one-hand). I'm using two...

    A case for the get up

    A truly interesting thing happened today. I have been working S&S for a month now. Today I opted to just do some ladder pushups before Easter brunch. I haven't done pushups in weeks. I've also grown proficient in my get-ups, really feeling the weight under my control overhead, especially in...
  16. C&P: stretch shortening cycle

    I'm wondering about whether/when to employ a stretch shortening cycle during a clean and press. I'm not a particularly advanced trainee, with my 1RM C&P at 24kg, but my proprioception is pretty good. With strict presses on my 40 lb bell, I have about a 7 RM, but if I do C&P with a technique...

    Looking for some metrics for an effective snatch test

    Just wondering if anyone came across or would share some measurables they have if they are good at the snatch test (meaning 100+ reps) with their bell size. I've heard the "should be able to press your snatch bell 20x" and things like that. Any info would satiate my appetite ;)
