  2. A simple program I thought some of you might enjoy

    Hello everyone! I wanted to share a simple program I created to help me get back in shape and fight the winter blues. It's fairly minimal and can be done quickly, but it works through 5 major movement patterns and can be pretty challenging! For this workout you'll need a mace and one or two...

    Just finished running Total Tension Complex, Kettlebell Muscle, and Kettlebell Strong. What next?

    Over the last 6 months, I started with Total Tension Complex, then did Kettlebell Muscle, and am now in the final week of Kettlebell Strong. I am looking for advice on what to do next. I was thinking another hypertrophy program, as my main goal is muscle gain. I was thinking of something from...
  4. Are armbars safe for a loose shoulder?

    Greetings everyone, Long story short, I dislocated my shoulder years ago by throwing a ball with poor form. It recovered, and a few years after that I took up judo and had the shoulder come out a few more times. I have since learned to compensate and am very careful with my training. I have...

    Strong swing, weak deadlift - how to bridge the gap?

    Starting a new thread here to pick up from an interesting conversation on this thread in the kettlebell forum. I have a fairly strong kettlebell swing - 10×10 one handed with a 40kg bell at 145lbs body weight - but a fairly weak deadlift - 100kg/220lbs seems to be my max, I can just about get...

    Periodizing output scaled by movement

    So I’m scheming a way to maintain “waviness of load” while using different movements and different weights. I plan to do this by estimating the work for a given event, roughly determined by the equation: reps x mass = work Yes; I recognize this isn’t the ACTUAL equation for work. No, it...

    Kettlebell Swing Technique Feedback

    Hello everyone, I was wondering if you could give me some feed back on my 2 handed kettlebell swing. I attached a video of me performing the 2 handed swing, the swing feels good but it looks like maybe I’m not getting deep enough in the bottom of the swing. Should I be bending my knees more at...

    Best overall kettlebell strength lift

    If you could choose one exercise to develop strength with a kettlebell, what would it be and why? I would lean towards the snatch due to the full body nature of it and specifically how it strengthens the grip, posterior chain, and shoulders. I know it’s a ballistic which isn’t ideal as a pure...

  19. Alternative conditioning for snatches when your hands get torn up

    I've been working a lot with kettlebell snatches lately and making great progress but it's tearing my hands up pretty good. I've learned to take things easy when I notice my callouses prematurely tearing but every now and then I'll get a nasty tear that can derail my training for a week or more...

    Timing between rungs for ladders

    Is there a standard for time gaps for rungs of a given ladder? From the materials I've read there is a lot of stuff written on resting between the ladders themselves, but the individual rungs--not so much. For example, I have been working my way through 803B & usually using 5 breaths between...
