    Kettlebell How to plan transitioning to heavy double cleans

    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...
  4. 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...

    Kettlebell Bent press working on one side but ...

    Don't know if anyone else has had this issue, but I'm sure there are some of you. When doing the bent press, I have no issue with one side but I cannot, for the life of me, seem to get the mechanics worked out on the other side. Short of having to seek out an SFG, anybody have recommendations or...

    Recommendations/Reviews/FS/WTB Selling 24kg Diamond Pro Kettlebell -- $63

    Decided that I'd like to reallocate my kettlebell collection -- selling a 24kg bell (currently have two) so that I can get a 28. Diamond Pro -- not a fancy brand, one that Wal-Mart used to carry, before things were harder to find. Asking $63 -- what I paid for it. I'm in central Ohio, that's...
  7. Kettlebell Moving Target Increase

    Hey Everybody, New to the forum however not new to KB’s. Recently got back on the KB train and signed up for the SF app (which I’m loving). Started Moving Target last week and started off with a 16kg KB. A 24kg KB isn't there yet for Presses for the full cycle however a 16 is seeming light. I...
  8. Kettlebell Cycle SandS with ROP?

    Hello all, I’ve just started SandS (I’m in my third week with 16kg) and I had a question about long term training. While staying with SandS until I meet the goal of using 32kg bell, should I cycle in ROP so I get stronger in the other lifts as well? Or will swings and get-ups take care of that...
  9. Kettlebell Is this Rogue E Coat good to go?

    Brand new to KB, and my Rogue E Coat arrived today. I read in the forum some have had issues with the handle (ie, seams). Are these dents in my handle ok? TIA.

    Kettlebell Timeless Simple Beyond The Prescribed 3-4 Days A Week?

    Been a lurker of this forum since I bought my first 16KG kettlebell along with Pavel's Simple & Sinister back in late February 2020, so this is my first time posting. Happy New Year All. Just this last month, I finally achieved Timeless Simple, which for me--someone who was very much out of...

    Kettlebell The Swing makes me lose touch in my toes

    Hi there! I’m the new guy but I’ve been woking out with kettlebells for almost 12 years now. Btw, sorry about my bad English but I am from Sweden. Three years ago I herniated two discs in my back (L1-L2 and L4-L5) when I stoped using kettlebells and tried Calestenics for a while. So I went down...

  13. Kettlebell Simple Strength for Difficult Times – Question

    Hello to all students of strength, can I follow this program in a different way? (one time) First, I'll do all the squats. Then all the Push series. Finally, all series of pulls. What you think?
  14. Other/Mixed 10x10 Protocol

    In Q&D, Pavel mentions the 10x10 protocol (10 power reps on a 3 minute interval for 10 rounds). He mentions it as the sort of thing his friend Victor would do with stair sprints and pushups, as well as the Bulgarian gymnastics coach Ivan Ivanov who would do 100 daily power reps. However, he...
  15. Kettlebell Power and endurance - questions about programming with KB vs O-lifts

    Hey everyone! First post here, so apologies if I broke a rule (or if this was asked earlier and I couldn't find it). From what I understand from Pavel's various KB programs, lifts are divided into grinds (no more than 5 reps) and ballistics (cleans, swings, snatches, jerks, etc.), which are...
  16. Other/Mixed Kettlebell, Bodyweight and Rings based workouts for BUD/S

    What would be the best fitness plan/movements to consider to meet the physical demands of Navy SEAL training (BUD/S) given that it consists of thousands of reps of pushups, situps, pullups, dips, etc (other calisthenic movements) daily, hours of log and boat pt, obstacle course runs, as well as...

  18. Kettlebell Can an alternating barbell and kettlebell routine grow muscle mass and train general athleticism?

    The idea I have is I'd train 3 days a week Mon, Wed, Fri, and alternate between training with barbells for hypertrophy and training with kettlebells for general athleticism and strength. With barbells, I'd perform deadlifts, bench presses, rows, squats, military press. So far I'm planning to...

    Kettlebell Weighted Pull-Ups

    Do we have a recommended method of hanging kettlebells from the waist while doing tactical pull-ups? I don't own a weight belt or any plates, but I have some heavy duty nylon straps (from a redundant set of gymnastic rings). I've seen some fancy rigs on the good ol' Google search, but I never...

I am currently at the following level : One side swings 28kg * 10/10 (actually I am waiting for the 32kg kettlebell to be delivered mid-october) Get...
