So i've recently did some bottoms up presses on wimb. guess what it made my standard press feel more natural. my past opinion was that the Bottoms up press was primarily a Grip exercise and kinda gimicky. is it a valide way to train the overhead press? should i be using this as a warm up for...
So I have been reading Russian Kettlebell Challenge and trying to develop a simple program around Pavel's principles. I am also trying to work on some particular weaknesses as well as train for more endurance. I was hoping that someone could tell me if this plan was consistent with...
What do you think of the form of the snatch presented here? Is an open handed grip recommended or not the greatest?
I felt strong on my right side, but a little less on my left. Comments on form are appreciated.
I read SS over a year ago and was immediately intrigued. Daily workouts? Only two exercises? Will this work? So I embarked on my SS journey ready to reap the benefits of increased cardio, strength gains, and that WTF factor everyone raves about. What sort of progress did I make you ask? None. I...
Hey Strongfirst community! I wanted to share a bit about my training with you all.
Firstly, I achieved Simple Status for S&S last Wednesday. It felt good to hit it, and I am definitely ready to move on to something with a more formal progression scheme. My two main goals right now are to...
Hi everybody, I have recently started S&S and I'm doing great, really happy with the routine. Working with 16 kg bell at the moment. The thing is that I travel a lot and work as a ship surveyor, so sometimes I end up in a remote location for a week without access to kettlebells. I don't think it...
Brand new to forum first post sorry if I'm not using proper ediqute. Really sorry if this has been addressed already.
So to get to the point with details to follow below. I have decided to add suitcase walk (farmer's walk with KB in one hand) at the end of my S&S regiment as a supplemental grip...
I did the total tension complex many times: I think it's a very good training.
I thought I'd change the workout by taking the proposed exercises:
EMOM: 30 minutes
KETTLEBELL: snatch test size (2)
I'm all new to this forum although I have been training with barbells since I was 14 and KB's since 2012. Certified as an SFG1 beginning of November this year, I would now like to ask for some collective wisdom on where to go from here as I am neither a PT/ coach nor particularly...
My goal is to begin Simple and Sinister, and eventually reach the Simple Goal.
I'm currently working on the Kalos Thenos TGU and Kettlebell Dynami as advised by Dan John.

I am a 26 year old male, I have ordered a 16kg kettle bell to start my fitness training for the first time in life ( I did work out earlier, 5 years ago, however that was only for 2 months which was on machines).
I got this dvd of Pavel - Enter the Kettlebell from one of my friends and...
I injured myself doing the Simple programme and couldn't find a post about a similar injury anywhere online.
A little about me:
27, M, 5'10", 190lbs, ~15% body fat
I've been doing martial arts and weight training since I was 16, currently doing MMA 3-5/week, and weight train...
Video from Kettlebell Kings and the Texas Kettlebell Academy. Just would like comments on what is shown here. I think the tell is when he says "soften it up". As Strongfirst is hard style SFG's will likely disagree with this instruction. I'm not saying right or wrong, I'm just trying to...
