  1. Kettlebell S&S Advice

    Hi, I am a fan of Pavel Tsatoulines S&S workout. I have purchased the book. I have a question in regards to splitting up the workout. My idea is to do the kettlebell swings in the morning and the get ups in the night. Essentially splitting up the workout. Could you please advise if it will...

    Kettlebell S&S: Introducing the One-hand swing

    Hello Everybody Happy & healthy 2022! It took me around one year to recover from an AC-joint injury and reach the level of the S&S progress I had before the injury. Meaning 10x10 two-hand swings and 10 TGUs both in 10min with a 24kg Kettlebell and training 3-4 times per week. After that, the...
  3. Kettlebell Are Getups better than Presses?

    I've been doing getups for a while, and my press has always improved alongside with my getups. More significantly, this WTH effect is very common even for very strong individuals: After 6 months of only S&S, Pavel Macek easily pressed his previous Military Press best, and set a PR in the Bent...
  4. Kettlebell What to do when injured S&S -R Elbow-

    Hello all, First time posting here. I would like to say thank you firstly, all the forums have been invaluable throughout my s&s journey. After a year of training S&s with great results, I have recently run into some issues with my R elbow ( it was perfect up until I introduced the 32kgSwings...
  5. Kettlebell S&S with deadlifts

    Hey folks! Had a question about temporarily replacing swings with kettlebell deadlifts in S&S. I had back pain to varying degrees for over a year which I'm currently in physio for - I was working on adding in the 24kg but had to take a break for physio since I'm very back and quad dominant. He's...
  6. Kettlebell Dividing Simple and Sinister

    Hypothetically speaking, if one doesn't have enough time to do a full Simple & Sinister routine each day, what would be the best way to spread it out? I recognize it equates to slower progress. The two options I see are a full routine every other day or TGUs one day and swings on the alternate...
  7. Kettlebell QL stretch skeletal clash?

    When I'm doing the "QL straddle" from S&S 2.0, I feel like my lowest ribs push against the top of my pelvis, pinching what flesh is in between. Has anybody else experienced this?

    Other/Mixed S&S + OS Resets?....

    Do you use the OS resets along with S&S? If so: How do you combine them, and what is the best 'recipe' you've found? And what improvements have you seen? Any and all genuine data points welcome.
  9. Barbell Barbell Daily Practice/S&S equivalent

    Apologies if this topic has already been covered, the search function did not seem to throw anything up... Curious as to peoples thoughts on a daily barbell practice, similar at least in theory to a daily S&S practice. What has always attracted me (and I'm sure many others) to S&S is its...

    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...
  12. 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...
  13. 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...
  14. 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...
  15. 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...

  20. 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...
