    Adam R Mundorf -- Training Log

    Age : 26 Background : I've been using kettlebells for about seven years. I've never made allot of progress because I've programmed hopped too many times to count. But I've never been completely inactive. That's allowed me to actually sustain an okay level of strength. I've always enjoyed the...

    Question Question on Breath-Timing

    In the book @Pavel writes: "As you will rapidly discover, the way to survive is to slow your breath down as much as possible, to get maximum air and to increase your rest period between each set." How to understand "as much as possible"? Through my Butekyo practice I am learning to spend...
  6. Simple and Sinister + Burpees

    Hi All, I know there are a lot of posts about obstacle course races, but I have a specific question about Spartan Race training. I recently started Simple and Sinister and signed up for a sprint race and everything I read about Spartan training says that incorporating burpees into your routine...

    S&S Custom Timer

    Hello friends, I’ve only been doing Simple & Sinister consistently for a couple weeks now. I’m not sure if anyone else does this, but I created a custom workout timer with the “Seconds” app that has been working very well for me. It keeps things moving so I don’t slack off, it counts me down...
  8. Hallux Valgus (big toe problem) and get up

    Hi, I recently have injured my food and as a result developed a hallux valgus condition on my right foot. This limits the bent of the big toe because the bones inside the ball of the food touch each other. This generates such a pain sensation that I cannot perform the get up safely anymore. I...

    Simple or Sinister Standard: Who's going to do it in 2018?

    It was great to see all the discussion on the Simple or Sinister by December 2017 post. This might be a good time to start a post for 2018. I achieved the Simple standard in 2017 and started practicing with the 40kg kettlebell. I took a couple of months off from doing S&S exclusively and added...

    S&S newbie query (Prying Goblet Squat)

    I'm a 34-year old male. 6'4 tall and about 75kg. Not got any muscle, or flexibility so having listened to Pavel being interviewed by Tim Ferriss picked up some kettlebells (8, 12, 16, 20kg) and a copy of Simple & Sinister. I've got as far as exercise 1 in the warmup, the Prying Goblet Squat...

    Question Alternating TGUs with the push press?

    Hey guys, I was reading this article: S&C Training for MMA With Simple & Sinister and a quote stood out to me. Once Viktor got to heavier get-ups (36 kg+), we started to alternate get-ups with push presses (Pavel Tsatsouline’s recommendation). One day we did swings and get-ups, the other day...

    S&S and Rucking?

    Adding Simple and Sinister to Naked Warrior

    Hello, just to answer the basic questions first: relevant demographics: I'm 23, Male, 6'1, 155, and pretty low body fat (I'd say 12% based on eyeballing it) - injury history: no injury history that I can think of, except that i sometimes experience joint pain in my elbow or knee, but only if...

    Kettlebell Simple & Sinister

    Warning: I am biased by practice. It happened out of a sudden, that I started SAS yesterday, and I am happy that today I have just two sessions under my belt. It was kind of coincidence, that I stumbled into SAS. Three weeks ago, I was on the motorway to enrich my family of bells. I drove home...

    Hi all, I'm relatively new to this forum and to the S&S program, but am really learning from this forum, so thanks for all the great advise and content. That being said, I wanted to upload some videos of both my one-handed swing and get-up, and put myself out there for critique, advise...
  18. S&S Quest

    Hey all, new to Strongfirst and kettlebells generally as of last month. I heard Pavel on the radio, my head exploded, then I bought Simple and Sinister, read it, started last month - May 2nd, 2017. I won't bore anyone with how last month went, but it started like this: Swings: 5 x 10 - 2...

    One day bodyweight course expectations

    Hey guys, I'm looking at taking the October bodyweight 1-day course in Exeter, NH. Should I look into getting the Naked Warrior or any other resources to prep for the workshop? I'm not really sure how the schedule of the workshop itself breaks down and would like to get as much from the...
