  1. Barbell Need help — combining barbell with kettlebell training

    Hey, folks! I've been struggling to combine barbell and kettlebell training primarily due to schedule and logistical issues. Let me talk about the latter first — my gym doesn't have a bell heavier than a 20 kg. And I usually swing with a 36kg (two-handed) and 28 kg (one-hand). I'm using two...

    Kettlebell A case for the get up

    A truly interesting thing happened today. I have been working S&S for a month now. Today I opted to just do some ladder pushups before Easter brunch. I haven't done pushups in weeks. I've also grown proficient in my get-ups, really feeling the weight under my control overhead, especially in...
  7. Kettlebell C&P: stretch shortening cycle

    I'm wondering about whether/when to employ a stretch shortening cycle during a clean and press. I'm not a particularly advanced trainee, with my 1RM C&P at 24kg, but my proprioception is pretty good. With strict presses on my 40 lb bell, I have about a 7 RM, but if I do C&P with a technique...

    Kettlebell Looking for some metrics for an effective snatch test

    Just wondering if anyone came across or would share some measurables they have if they are good at the snatch test (meaning 100+ reps) with their bell size. I've heard the "should be able to press your snatch bell 20x" and things like that. Any info would satiate my appetite ;)
  9. Kettlebell Form Check: Worried Swings are Causing/Exacerbating Tennis Elbow

    Hi all, I've posted on here once before for a form check and it was very helpful. I have recently been trying to graduate to single arm swings with a 24kg bell. I felt like my two-arm swings were going well for a while. In the last week or two I have noticed tennis elbow starting to flare up...

  13. Other/Mixed 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...

    Kettlebell 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...
  15. Kettlebell 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...

    Barbell 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...

    Kettlebell 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 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...
