    This is my first post for StrongFirst. As an avid reader of Pavel's works, I have decided to put one of his hypertrophy programs to the test!

    Year planning

    Dear SFers, as the year starts to unfold I was thinking about my priorities and about the various great programs Pavel has written. This lead me to the question of macro planning. Is there an article of Pavel on planning a year or on macro cycles (or whatever it might be called)? I know he has...

    Advice from Al or Pavel on PM

    I have started program minimum as interpreted by the free workbook Anthony put out years ago. I do gtg getups and crush curls as recommended by Steve. I was reading the talk about "a & a" on the forum, and I wondered if the increasing reps per set is still recommended. It seems that this falls...

    Where's Pavel?

    Hi all, I can't be the only one wondering (and looking forward to) when we will next see something new from Pavel. I'm sure whatever he is working on will be worth the wait but do we know when we will see some new posts from him?

    S&S Breathing technique

    Hi everyone, I recently bought and started using the S&S program, but I felt like the explanation of the breathing technique was a bit confusing to me. I was wondering if anyone could clarify the technique? I see a lot about forcing air out on the upswing of the kettlebell, but I'm not sure...

  16. Ever since Naked Warrior, Ive wondered...

    Ever since Naked Warrior, Ive wondered; should you do one arm one leg push ups on one side then the other? or should I do one day of ‘right arm left leg’ then ‘left arm, right leg’ the next day? and when I’m not working a particular arm or leg, I'll practice tension (e.g. the feedforward loop)

    On What It's Like to be Pavel

    So I was in the gym today and a friend saw me practicing deadlift and said he'd been doing them in CrossFit class and they were scary. He was afraid he'd hurt his back. During the ensuing conversation it came to lite that he didn't know of Pavel. My first thought was "and they let you deadlift?"...

    I'm getting ready to start Pavel's audacious and awesome (yep, I'm dead serious...the guy's programs are epic). I also just started Deadlifts (I stopped benches & dips as Pavel recommends we do not do those in conjunction with 1-arms), and his pull-up program. My question: 1. Should I do the...
