    Kettlebell Snatching A A every day

    Need a little direction. Is it possible to snatch A A every day?I think some have said they do it, but I am not sure what they started with in doing so. Just trying to find a good place to start if anybody has some suggestions.
  2. Kettlebell Enjoying Snatches and Bentpresses

    So I have been trying out snatching and bent-pressing, but not RSAS as I am still far from the required strength requirement of simple. But what I can say is I'm enjoying snatching and Bent pressing. I havent timed myself on my lifts but on weekdays I snatch my 20kgs and on Sundays I snatch my...

    Kettlebell Escalating Density Snatches - HR graphs

    I've been doing escalating density snatches once a week ala @Brett Jones prep guide, preparing for SFG 1 in November. I use the 20 kg for now and been using a HRM. I'm a bit intrigued by the HR graphs. Below are my sessions with 7/7, 8/8 and 9/9 reps on the minute. It was 12 minutes, 10...
  4. Kettlebell Snatch test record

    What is the heaviest bell anyone has managed to snatch 100 reps in 5 min?
  5. Kettlebell S&S with snatches

    Would replacing the swings with snatches in S&S be too much overhead work? Is there a particular reason S&S uses swings not snatches?
  6. Kettlebell Kettlebell snatch and clean and jerk program

    Ive been doing a lot of snatches lately and really like the conditioning and power results. Specifically I’ve been following the A+A but with snatches. Once I’ve finished the A+A plan i was thinking to add in some clean and jerks with one bell (I read a great article on martial conditioning)...

    Kettlebell Shoulder Pain?

    I am new to this forum and am looking for some help! I am training for SFG1 cert next month and so far so good (its my first time!) Although, I notice when I pull my (right) lat down, the front of my right shoulder has pain. This has been going on for only a few weeks, and I don't feel it doing...
  8. Kettlebell Snatches and Rollouts

    Ive recently been training little other than snatches and rollouts and simply want to recommend it! I’ve been gradually increasing snatches EMOM for 10-20 min then increasing the reps per minute once I achieve 20 min and repeating the cycle. Then rollouts for 5x5 with 60-90s rest. There is no...

    Barbell Barbell/dumbbell alternative exercise for KB Snatch

    Recently I started incorporating A+A (or HIRT) work into my strength routine. Unfortunately the heaviest kettlebell in my gym is 28kg which feels too light for me to generate maximum power - I can comfortably snatch 32kg for reps. On the other side there are barbells, and fixed dumbbell options...

    Strong Endurance Deadlifts with 523A & 524A for TSC

    I'm going to be prepping for TSC and trying to figure a plan for this. How do I add deadlifts into a program that already has quite a bit of hinging .Thanks .
  11. Kettlebell Olympic Dumbbell Training

    I only have one and very much enjoy using the DB for DLs, get ups, side presses and suitcase carries. I want tips on the power snatch and how to properly do a goblet squat. As for snatches, I’ve done quite a few with fixed DBs but I’m concerned about the plates hitting me as it comes up so any...

    Kettlebell How To Improve Your Kettlebell Snatch-Part I

    Just finished up the 1st part of a 3 part series on how to improve your kettlebell snatch. The most common thing I see go wrong with the snatch (and the clean) is the "taming of the arc". The snatch is a "vertical projection of force" compared to the swings "horizontal projection of force"...

    Kettlebell Snatch carryover to deadlift

    Hey everyone, I am curious about your experience with snatches or swings (specifically heavy snatches A+A style) transferring over to deadlifts. I have decided to put deadlifts on the backburner while I pursue improving snatch strength and capacity. I am interested to see what will happen to my...
  15. Kettlebell Strength Standards

    Beyond things like "Simple", "Solid", "Sinister", "Beast Tamer", "Iron Maiden", and the SFG I & II technique standards, are there any more formalized strength standards for kettlebell exercises? What comes to mind for me is something like these: Weightlifting Performance Standards for the...

    Kettlebell Programming snatch for TSC

    Hello everyone, I am thinking about starting a program where I would be able to prepare for TSC while improving my double press. It would consist of these elements: Double Press twice a week (KB Strong template) Pull Ups every other day (FPP template) Snatch twice a week Deadlift once a week...
  18. Kettlebell KB overhead snatch grip - open or closed? (video)

    What do you think of the form of the snatch presented here? Is an open handed grip recommended or not the greatest? I felt strong on my right side, but a little less on my left. Comments on form are appreciated.

    Kettlebell Snatches sets/rep equivalent to 10x10 of swings

    I am thinking about idea of mixing exercises from Simple & Sinister (Swing & TGU) and old Program Minimum (Snatch & BP) into a "park bench" program between more intensive cycles. It's from Program Minimum [Squared] but I would like to program it more like S&S. The idea is to do these trainings...

    Kettlebell The Kettlebell Snatch

    Video from Kettlebell Kings and the Texas Kettlebell Academy. Just would like comments on what is shown here. I think the tell is when he says "soften it up". As Strongfirst is hard style SFG's will likely disagree with this instruction. I'm not saying right or wrong, I'm just trying to...
