    Kettlebell Tactical Get-up

    OK, here is the thing: I can't do TGU due to my old wrist injury, thus I do Tactical Get-up mentioned in the S&S 2.0 book. This week I completed 100 One-Arm Swings with 32kg, so it would mean that I achieved Timed Simple, but instead TGU I did the same amount of reps TacGU (I call that the...

    Kettlebell StrongFirst Reload Cycle and S&S

    Hi all, I'm wondering how to schedule a plan in which I would like to have S&S sessions and DL with Squats as in Reload? I have 5-6 sessions of S&S with 32kg (Timeless Simple competed), but I think in order to add some DL and SQ I would have to reduce to 3-4. The main goal would be to get...
  3. Kettlebell Golfer's Elbow with TGU

    I feel as I go heavier and heavier with the TGU (only at 24kg right now), my left elbow seems to complain more and more. My right elbow is mostly fine. I try to focus on keeping my shoulder packed/lats engaged (until they need to disengage ever so slightly to raise the bell overhead), and I...
  4. Kettlebell What breathing pattern should I use between sets in S&S?

    I understand that slowing your heart rate and relaxing is a goal between sets, so that you can recover more quickly and be ready to start your next set sooner. I'm looking for a prescriptive "do this for X seconds, that for X seconds" instruction. But I haven't managed to find one from a...
  5. Kettlebell S&S Recovery Question

    Hello! I have been lurking in this forum for quite a while and read many helpful threads. I've finally worked up the courage to ask my own question. I've been following S&S mostly consistently for quite a while (two years), and would like to reach timed simple before moving to something more...
  6. Kettlebell Lat pain, working toward timed Simple

    I hit timeless Simple about a month ago, and I've recently transitioned to work towards timeless Simple. As such, I've started working the 40kg two sets out of 10, with one workout a week of hard pushing the time on a 24kg. After just a week and a half of this, my lats are burning like nobody's...

    Kettlebell What to do when One hand is out of action while practicing S&S.

    Hi everyone, I had an idea this morning that I thought might be useful to share, and to get some comments from SFGs and experienced lifters on here for everyone’s benefit. My right hand has an annoying tear on the middle finger because of a pulled callus. I have been diligently doing my...

  11. Kettlebell S&S and other focuses

    Hi guys, I’m new to the forum and I’m completely new to anything inspired by Pavel. Kettlebells have always fascinated me and with us all locked in our own homes I figured there’s probably no better time than to start my education here. I started S&S on Monday this week but I also compete in...

    I finished the Hybrid Power Conditioning Program today with a 16 kg kettlebell. Six weeks of 3 days per week slowly increasing 10 swings EMOM. Tough thing considering my relative inexperience with kettlebells, but I finished it Alhamdulillaah. Very foolishly, I did not take before photos or...

    Kettlebell Where do I go from here?

    Hi. I got a 16 kg kettlebell some time back. Started with S&S. Progressed a bit then fell off the wagon. Exercised really sporadically for a couple of months. Was looking for some program that I could start and finish during the ongoing lockdown (I live in India). Searched and found this...
  15. Kettlebell S&S vs Q&D.......again

    I am currently doing John Russia’s FHT program. My wife and I are expecting a new baby in mid-June, and after that I’ll need to taper down to a more efficient training program. I did S&S today just to see how it felt, and I was able to achieve Timeless Simple (swings in ~15’, TGUs in ~10th’)...

  19. Kettlebell S&S + Press

    Hi SF community. I would like to pick your brains on how pressing could be best incorporated along S&S. I had been on S&S for over a year and after doing some tests I realized my press is worse than I expected. Doing get ups with 32 and 40kg I could only press 24kg for a 2RM. I pressed a 28kg...
