A change in direction in my life, training and mental state.
South Jersey -- 20 minutes outside of Philadelphia
Rite of Passage from Enter the Kettlebell
Food Combining similar to the Gracie Diet.
I'll be logging this over in the...
Most of the coaches are saying about importance of warm up before training. From Pavel's old books I remember that he was not a big fan of doing warm up.
I'm training everyday (GTG) so I do not do warm up and i feel good. In exercesises like weighted chin-ups risk of injury is much smaller than...
I’m currently following the Faleev 80/20 program, AS WRITTEN and at the risk of being one of those guys who completely changes a program and then proclaims the program not to work when the bastardized version fails, would it be possible to include hip thrusts into the program? If so, I was...
I hope you are all managing to stay well and safe currently!
This is my first post here and I have checked through lots of threads to see whether the question I am about to ask has been asked previously but could not see it. If it has please accept my apologies in advance, if you...
New to this all, just heard Pavel on JRE. I definitely want to implement this training. I am just sort of confused where to begin. I'd say I am an intermediate lifter. Does anyone of Excel or google sheet templates for the program?
@Pavel Macek, We are the 3 guys from Israel from the Italy vicenza SFB course (november 2019).
We are looking for a program to help us succeed the SFB challenge , also we would like to participate at May to SFG in Israel. we are thankful for your help!
i recently read pavels beyond bodybuilding and he displays a power cycle my question was do power cycles build or display strength and what is the difference between power cycles and peaking ? And thank you
hello everyone ive been i did some pttp cycles wich went very well for me for some weeks now i have been doing a pavel deadlift si gles program and today after a stressful day i couldnt resist i juste went in after my12 singles and put 350 the 400 on the bar and failed it at lockout i still have...
Good similar daily program ?
Maybe the justa singles programs but the problem is i can only can go 5 days a week to the gym not 7 any help and thanks !!!!
Also there is this special deadlift program that pavel apparently wrote from an old thread is this for real !!!!
And could a similar type of...
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! Beyond Bodybuilding is a treasure trove of knowledge and if you haven't picked it up, I highly recommend it! That is where this program can be found. As a...
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...
This is absolute gold from Dan John. He could sell this at a premium but has linked to it free in latest post.
A complete set of PowerPoint slides on Easy Strength principles and applications. Enjoy!
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...
A somewhat regular (bi-monthly) Q&A with Pavel when he is back online would get my vote. Maybe question submissions could be upvoted and then the top 3-5 questions get answered in the forum.
Tim Ferriss does something similar and it leads to some really interesting insights.
Just a suggestion.
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?
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...
Which should be done first OAPU or PISTOL? Its stupid but I remember reading something from Pavel about how its better for overall health (he had some good reasons) if you do one of these before the other.
which should be done first?
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)
