  1. 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...
  2. 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...
  5. Recommendations/Reviews/FS/WTB Are these good?

    Hi everyone, I decided to start training on the kettlebell just a few days ago after reading some of Pavel's books and becoming inspired by them. In S&S Pavel recommends starting out with 16kg and 24kg kettlebells, however it seems that everywhere I look they are out of stock (I live in the...

    Other than S&s which are other kettlebell programs that you have matched whit a running routine? I don't have any particular goals on running, my pace is always within my MAF number (average 135/142bpm), in particular I'd like to know if someone have combined running with other kettlebell...

  8. Kettlebell Kettlebell Swing Form Assessment

    Hey All, I was very intrigued and inspired by Pavel Tsatsouline after hearing him on a couple of different podcasts. I decided to read Pavel's Simple and Sinister and to start the program.

  9. Kettlebell Vertical Jump vs KB training

    Hey SF Community, Do we have any guidelines for bodyweight vertical jump force plate data vs KB swing/snatch data and at which kb weight used exceeds force production of jumping? Speed of repetition plays a larger role in this than weight I understand and there's the distinction of vertical vs...
  10. Kettlebell ROP “GED” & Strict Press Form

    I’ve been struggling w/ progressing on pressing this 24kg after doing S+J gtg style. It feels like I never really retain the gains from one week to another & “own the weight”. I previously pressed this weight for a 3RM last week fairly easily—this week I’m experiencing the same bad form I...

  12. Kettlebell S&S and other focuses

    Hi guys, I’m new to the forum and I’m completely new to anything inspired by Pavel. Kettlebells have always fascinated me and with us all locked in our own homes I figured there’s probably no better time than to start my education here. I started S&S on Monday this week but I also compete in...

    Kettlebell Where do I go from here?

    Hi. I got a 16 kg kettlebell some time back. Started with S&S. Progressed a bit then fell off the wagon. Exercised really sporadically for a couple of months. Was looking for some program that I could start and finish during the ongoing lockdown (I live in India). Searched and found this...
  15. Kettlebell Tendonitis in right arm (probably golfer's elbow) from kettlebells swings. Forced to back off to heal. Can anybody suggest any alternatives?

    Hi Everyone. Like I said in the title, I think that I've given myself some tendonitis in my right elbow/forearm from doing one-handed kettlebell swings as in "Simple and Sinister". It looks like I'm going to have to back off the swings at least with my right arm in order to heal. I'd rather...
