  4. Bodyweight How to run 5 miles, do 500 pushups, 500 squats in 1 workout

    There is a Crossfit WOD called Shawn that I've been interested in doing since I first heard about it. Basically, you run 5 miles, but after each 5-minute interval you have to do 50 pushups and 50 air squats. I've trained for strength for many years. I've also run 10 miles before, but never...

    Other/Mixed Types of Strength

    Straight-arm strength vs bent-arm strength. Vertical pulling vs horizontal pulling. Rotational strength vs explosive strength. One-arm vs bilateral. I know the answer is ultimately 'it depends', followed by 'what are your goals', but come on. We can paint with some broad strokes occasionally...
  10. Kettlebell Kettlebell training for strength and barbell training for hypertrophy at the same time?

    Is it possible to gain both strength and size by using kettlebells and barbells at the same time? I apologize if this is a silly question, but from what I gather so far it seems like kettlebells are great for gaining strength without completely destroying your muscles in the process. I wonder if...

    Hello all! With the new year comes new goals and resolutions, and I was excited to see "get stronger" on my girlfriend's list. I became a kettlebell proselytizer when I began my practice at the beginning of covid lockdown, so naturally my immediate reaction to her 2021 goal of strength...

    Bodyweight What do you think about warm up?

    Most of the coaches are saying about importance of warm up before training. From Pavel's old books I remember that he was not a big fan of doing warm up. I'm training everyday (GTG) so I do not do warm up and i feel good. In exercesises like weighted chin-ups risk of injury is much smaller than...
  17. Kettlebell Can an alternating barbell and kettlebell routine grow muscle mass and train general athleticism?

    The idea I have is I'd train 3 days a week Mon, Wed, Fri, and alternate between training with barbells for hypertrophy and training with kettlebells for general athleticism and strength. With barbells, I'd perform deadlifts, bench presses, rows, squats, military press. So far I'm planning to...
