simple & sinister

  1. Floor Press on Get up

    Hi all, I am currently using simple and sinister 2.0 and want to progress from the 32kg to 40kg. As a way of background I have reached the simple goal a couple of times in the past (albeit it’s been a few years since then) and life got in the way so restarted for a 3rd time as it fits in time...
  2. Yet another S&S addition thread....

    First off , can't emphasize enough how awesome this forum is and how helpful everyone is. Thanks so much — you all are the best. Second, I've been going through S&S for the past month and really enjoying it. I'm nearly hitting the time standards for 24kg (I've got it for TGU, but not swings...
  3. Tendonitis in right arm (probably golfer's elbow) from kettlebells swings. Forced to back off to heal. Can anybody suggest any alternatives?

    Hi Everyone. Like I said in the title, I think that I've given myself some tendonitis in my right elbow/forearm from doing one-handed kettlebell swings as in "Simple and Sinister". It looks like I'm going to have to back off the swings at least with my right arm in order to heal. I'd rather...

If it has please accept my apologies in advance, if you...

    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

    "Once or twice a month, take on any physical challenge that will test your spirit without breaking your body." This was already part of S&S 1.0 but it is more prominent in 2.0 as it is the equivalent of timed/glycolotic sessions before achieving Timeless Simple. What are your ideas for jolts...

    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...
  11. 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...
