  1. Barbell PTTP: Zercher Squats instead of Deadlifts?

    Hey All, Just wondering your thoughts about replacing the DL’s in PTTP with Zercher Squats? Goals are GPP with the plan to compete in the spring and fall TSC’s as a way to monitor progress. I have decided to follow Brett Jones article “To Every Season: A simple way to Structure A Year of...
  2. Other/Mixed Program using only one arm

    Hi all. I had bicep tendon repair surgery (at the elbow) around a month ago. As a result I currently can't currently do exercises which require two hands. For example - two handed swings, two handed barbell exercises, etc are all out (probably for a couple of months). I'm trying to devise a...

    Other/Mixed Types of Strength

    Straight-arm strength vs bent-arm strength. Vertical pulling vs horizontal pulling. Rotational strength vs explosive strength. One-arm vs bilateral. I know the answer is ultimately 'it depends', followed by 'what are your goals', but come on. We can paint with some broad strokes occasionally...

    Hello, I’ll be attending my SFG l in a little over 9 weeks. Leaving me with 8 solid weeks of training. I’ve been following the SFG l prep on the StrongFirst app. I had to scale the weights on the snatch due to lack of training time with the snatch prior to preparing. I was skeptical of my...
  12. Other/Mixed Programming: Tweaking programs for intermediate / master's while preserving the progression / intent

    At my age and fitness level I find I sometimes get stuck between beginner and advanced programs. A tiny tweak I have been using for published programs has helped. What I do is just repeat the first week and other weeks of programming as necessary. I got this idea from the linear step model of...

    Kettlebell The Getup - Owning The Weight

    Spend at least 60 seconds on each side, being very deliberate at every phase of the getup. Once you get to that point, keep practicing until it becomes easy. This is one of the safest ways to determine if you own the weight and are ready to move up to the next bell size.

    Kettlebell Best way to improve my press

  17. Other/Mixed Recommended monthly number of repetitions for various lifts?

    Today I was lucky enough to stumble upon a reference to a Pavel article I had not heard of before, "Ladders Reloaded," in MILO Vol 23 No. 1.

    Bodyweight Figuring out % for weighted bodyweight

    Hi all So how do you figure out % with weighted bodyweight? for example 1rm for me is bodyweight +28kg (113kg) would 85% be (113kg x 85%)=96kg OR is it better to go from the added weight? 28kg x 85%=24kg lastly is using % of 1rm for bodyweight a flawed though and I should instead figure out...
