    Kettlebell swings (and DL) with significant leg length difference

    Hi everybody, Very new to the forum and making use of kettlebells for a bit over a year now. My knowledge (limited as it is) mainly comes from the books from Pavel and I have to say that I am quite hooked to the use of KBs. Even that much, that my wife is using them now as well ;) The only...

    Bent Press to Strict Press Ratio

    Hey everyone, I am just reaching out to see if anyone has come across or would share their own max bent press to max strict press weights. I understand that the bent press should be the press used for most weight overhead. For me it is about even with 40kg. I can do more with dynamic...

    Hello All, So, I find myself being good at chinups. In ETK, Pavel says to weigh yourself down to 5rm. So I purchased myself a dip belt, so I could hang a kettlebell. This is my first time taking weighted chinups seriously. Any pointers to form difference and to how to implement into the...

  13. Osgood-Schlatter, WTH Effect, Kettlebells, Weightlifting

    Hello Comrades, I need your advice. I was recently diagnosed with Osgood-Schlatter. The doctor told me I should avoid stuff like squats and do mostly upper body work. This is devastating because I love weightlifting and it means I can't do Snatches and Clean and Jerks, let alone squats. I...
