  4. 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

    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...

    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...
  8. Question 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’)...
  9. Review Form Check 18 KG Swing

    Hello All, I'm a 30-year-old male(still feel like I'm 18). I've been training for a bit over two years now, mainly at the gym doing the typical barbell stuff. I was inspired after reading some conversations on Instagram about StrongFirst and KB training. Since Covid has everything all messed up...

  12. 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...

  14. Few weeks S&S 2, significant loss of size. Normal?

    Hi everyone, I have been lifting for 10+ years rather consistently and mostly towards hypertrophy. But I've plateaued for the last 4 years (or so), and being more lenient with diet. I started S&S 2.0, 5 weeks ago, but I had a 10 days holidays in between. I have lost a significant amount of...

    Question Would Farmer Carries be a good temporary TGU substitute

    I injured my left shoulder about a month ago but increasing pull up volume too quickly. Originally I thought I had aggravated a previously C6/7 radiculopathy but I saw my doctor today and she thought it was just a strain, likely of the insertion of my lat into my shoulder. The result has been...

    KB’s and Marathon Training

    I’ve got a nice collection of KB’s gathering dust. I’ve neglected them since I started running 5 years ago. After a string of injuries and guessing I’m not as strong as I used to be. Injuries: glute, hamstring, soleous. I’ll be entering into another marathon cycle in February 2020, prior to...
  17. Sinister training with a 24kg bell only

    Just a thought experiment... Could one train only with a 24kg bell (just one so no stacked exercises or doubles) and become strong enough to achieve Sinister? Like you’d never trained with kettlebells before, you got a 24kg bell and started training. After a while you stumble upon a 48kg bell...
  18. Goblet squat alternative for warming up

    Does anyone have any good alternatives to the goblet squat for using as part of the S&S warm up? Few months back I had a climbing accident and dislocated my ankle, and although it is healing nicely, I'm still having to work on the mobility side of things, and currently don't have the required...

    S&S deloading

    Hi SF team Wondering what you guys recommend as a good deloading steps after an intense S&S 3 month phase. I just achieved simple goal with 32kg bell and I find that continuing with this tempo (lifting 5x per week for a total of 2000 swings) leaves me over trained after 2 weeks. I don't kind...
  20. Question Turkish get up progression quesion

    Hello, Sorry if this has been addressed. I've been looking everywhere, but I can't find anyone talking about it. What is the progression of the TGU (aside from weight)? For example, what exactly does "5 sets of 1 TGU per arm" vs "5 sets of 5 TGU per arm" mean? Does this mean that you do 5 on...
