  1. Kettlebell Questions regarding strength development as a teen martial artist

    Hey! I'm M/17, and fairly new to kb's. I have read S&S a couple of times but don't have any bells yet. I have been attempting to build a home gym to do barbelling with, but I've come to realize that it would cost a little too much money for me and I'm not going to live in the house for more than...
  2. Other/Mixed Strength, mobility, and power: the missing link or why everyone should do martial arts movement

    EDITED: I was working through a program by Aleks Salkin SFG2 the other day, unbreakable or opening up shoulders and hips when I realized that there might be a missing link after strength and mobility training and that is unloaded power in the same plane of movement. Of course, there are KB...
  3. 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 A+A - minimum/maximum effective dose for a (muay thai) fighter

    Hi everybody, it's my first post here, so at the beginning a thank you to everyone who contributed here. Knowledge I gained here is invaluable. I'm an amateur muay thai/k1 fighter who got interested in the concept of A+A. There's no one coherent body of text about this type of programming, so...
  5. Off-Topic 52 blocks, "Jailhouse Rock"

    I know this isn't a martial arts forum, but I'm also aware that there are many martial artists and martial arts fans who frequent the forum I've been interested in different kinds of martial arts lately, and came across this one. Jailhouse rock (fighting style) - Wikipedia "therefore, your...
  6. Other/Mixed Firas Zahabi on the Joe Rogan podcast

    Excellent podcast with Firas Zahabi (coach of Georges St-Pierre). In the course of the podcast, they talk a fair amount about strength and conditioning as well as fight training and the threads of "easy strength" are pressed throughout. The ending is a little pedantic with weird philosophy talk...
  7. Other/Mixed Applying StrongFirst principles A&A etc. to Muay Thai.

    I do Muay Thai for fitness. I am a middle-aged "recreational" athlete, so not going to fight. It occured to me that so much fight training is based on glycolytic training (30 sec to two min. periods and doing calisthetics before skill work, which does not really make sense) but this may not be...

    Recommendations/Reviews/FS/WTB Trembling Shock by Jon Engum - Book Review

    I've had about a week to read and digest this book and I'm pretty darn happy with it. The author presents his long experience melding martial arts and sensible strength and conditioning training. Although there are plenty of good resources around for GGP training (which is a reasonable place to...
  10. Kettlebell Slightly stalled subsequent "Simple", slide toward "Solid" or switch systems?

    Hey guys, First off, yes, I was trying to have everything in the title start with 's'. Since March, I have made great progress, learned a lot, and surprised myself with the ability to get to the point where I am regularly swinging 32kgs with one arm as well as training the get up with 36 &...
  11. Kettlebell Approaching the journey to "Solid"

    Hey team, I just hit "Simple" yesterday and it went pretty darn well. Primarily because I spent so long practicing with 28kgs before a 32kg bell without a grip that tore my hands apart on the swings showed up that I was probably overdue to hit it. Anyway, I'm looking for what to do going...
  12. Bodyweight One day bodyweight course expectations

    Hey guys, I'm looking at taking the October bodyweight 1-day course in Exeter, NH. Should I look into getting the Naked Warrior or any other resources to prep for the workshop? I'm not really sure how the schedule of the workshop itself breaks down and would like to get as much from the...
  13. Recommendations/Reviews/FS/WTB Steve Maxwell's Garage Gorilla Metabolic Conditioning

    Hi guys, Does anyone have experience with this routine that Steve has on his site? I'm interested in it due to the minimalist styling, but was hoping to get a review from someone who had tried it directly. I'm also interested in thoughts on any of Steve's other digital downloads. Thanks!

    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.
