    2020 will be Simple (maybe a little Sinister?)

    Starting the journey to Simple & hopefully beyond in 2020. I'm 40 y/o 170 lbs and moderately athletic. In a previous career I was a firefighter and practiced strength training (mostly 5x5 barbell workouts). Currently a software engineer and out of the strength practice for quite some time...

    S & S for teenagers

    So I've been enjoying using kettlebells. I'm gaining strength, and I'm understanding my body better. I'm a father of five, boys age 16, 14, 11, 8, and a 13 year-old girl. As a homeschooling family, I'm responsible for every part of my children's education, including Phys. Ed. I'm thinking that...

    Jolts for S&S 2.0

    Overspeed Eccentrics: 4x10 or 10x10? (S&S)

    I am currently reading Easy Strength and stumbled upon this passage: Similar to the recommendations here: How to Boost Your Athletic Power with Kettlebells...and a PUSH Band | StrongFirst Odden , too, does not recommend more than 40 reps total. However in S&S they are used on Light Days and...
  7. Substitute for Hip Thrusts in S&S

    Reciently been doing way more of S&S and my knee has reminded me that it really hates hip bridges. I have a 3 year old meniscus injury that’s only bothered now by a#@ to grass squats (past parallel is fine) and hip bridges. Can I substitute SL or staggered stance deadlifts? As I understood it...

    A case for the get up

    A truly interesting thing happened today. I have been working S&S for a month now. Today I opted to just do some ladder pushups before Easter brunch. I haven't done pushups in weeks. I've also grown proficient in my get-ups, really feeling the weight under my control overhead, especially in...

    QL Straddle Stretch

    I am currently following S+S and try to keep it Pavel. I do find that when I DON'T do the stretches that my glutes, QL or hamstrings tend to bother me the next day. So I dig the stretches as restorative tools. However, the QL straddle stretch tends to give me a tense neck and headaches. I...
