    Kettlebell Weight progression after time out

    I’ve been doing simple and sinister off and on for 5 years - consistency in periods then allowed myself to be weak. Have hit 32kg for all swings and started into 40kg. TGU hit 24kg moving into 32kg. Over a year ago. Reset to 24kg now 24/32/32/32/24kg for swings and 16kg, now 16/24/24/24/16...

    Kettlebell My S&S one year anniversary

    I had a 12kg bell sitting unused for quite a while before I bought the S&S book last year. I began to experiment a little while reading the book with the different movements, from the warmup to the prying goblet squat. When I came to the Turkish Get Up, I found that 12kg was too heavy as I could...

    Barbell Lighter weight for a better progression?

    hello I am currently doing the 5x5 madcow. And I replaced the '' Barbell Row '' with weighted pull-ups. I used the madcow calculator and my weight for the pull-ups seems very heavy. I also have trouble finishing some series while the% compared to my 1 RM is the same as for the other exercises...

    Bodyweight Pull up progression

    I ask myself a little question about my progress in pull-ups. It took me 3 months and 10 days to go from 18 to 20. But only 4 weeks to go from 10 to 14 in weight (10kg). I used a lot of GtG, FFP. Despite that I gained considerable ease on the 2 types of pull-ups (BW and weighted). Maybe...

I have been doing the 24 kg for 3 weeks, and would like to start incorporating the 32 kg bell as per the progression scheme. However I know the book recommends adding...

    Hey guys, I've been doing S&S to the letter since March and reading Easy Strength.. My previous forum post is here, for those who would like to see: S&S: Soccer GPP Adaptation?? I believe that, even though I haven't done the swing and tgu test yet, I am capable of moving up weights as I went...
