  1. Other/Mixed When to invest in a new technique?

    Today I was messing around with my deadlift stance during warm-up. I put my feet a bit narrower than usual. This made things feel a bit more difficult than my usual stance. I considered using this new stance for my work sets since I am at the beginning of a mesocycle, but I resolved to put my...
  2. Other/Mixed “Easy Strength” question

    Reading ”Easy Strength” currently. Around page 40 Dan John gives an example of a warmup progression. With quite a few movements and exercises. He seems to be implying that he uses this warmup every training session? Possibly even daily? Later in the book they’d give suggestions on how to do...

  6. Other/Mixed SF 4/14/22 Newsletter: Build strength and muscle with a radical tactic

    In the StrongFirst newsletter from last Thursday it included a combination strength and hypertrophy plan and describes how it works specifically for one exercise (exercise selection choices were given but the program was only shown for a single exercise). To put that to work in a...

    Barbell Balancing the Daily Dose Deadlift plan with other strength training

    I'm in the test week of the 5TRM back squat programme, and intending to start the Daily Dose Deadlift plan next week. I'm wondering how best to balance the rest of my training with the programme. At the moment I'm lifting 3 days a week – squats every session (as per the 5TRM programme) followed...
  9. Kettlebell Program Comparison

    I’m sure this has been asked already but I’m trying to figure out what different kettle bell programs offer given the amount of overlap they all seem to have when it comes to ‘checking all the boxes’. Asked another way, why would I choose Simple and Sinister vs Kettlebell Strongfirst (Bhutto...

  11. 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...

    Kettlebell Training Ideas for the Next Year

    Hi everyone, I hope you’re all having a great start to your weekend! I have a couple questions today that I’d like to get some outside opinions on. A little backstory on my training right now: I’m doing S&S, I own “timeless 36kg” on both swings and get ups and am working on “timed 36kg”. I can...
  16. Kettlebell S&S Recovery Question

    Hello! I have been lurking in this forum for quite a while and read many helpful threads. I've finally worked up the courage to ask my own question. I've been following S&S mostly consistently for quite a while (two years), and would like to reach timed simple before moving to something more...

    Kettlebell SFG l

    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...
