    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...
  4. 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...

    Bodyweight Weak adductors

    My adductors are too weak because I feel pain in this area. I want to strengthen these inner thigh muscles. I think that my abductors are much stronger than adductors, so should I train only inner thigh without build more strength in abductors? Is it possible that this disbalance make pain in...

    Kettlebell Program recommendations for my fun girlfriend

    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...
  11. 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...

  15. Barbell Cycling without prescribing volume

    When cycling load should you always keep the reps and sets the same? Whenever I’ve cycled my barbell training I do it by gradually upping the weight and keeping everything else the same. I’ve done this ever since I read PTTP. Usually I do 5-3-2 reps and keep upping the weight till I hit a 5RM...

  17. Bodyweight What's The Most Interesting Strength-Transfer/Carry Over You've Seen?

    I read an article that said 'a PT from trainstrong PT could barely flip a 350kg tyre. after doing 3 months of serious TGU work with a 48kg kettlebell, he was able to flip it over easily' Pavel once wrote that a man did nothing but OAPUs and, months later, did a One Arm Chin Up effortlessly...

    Kettlebell 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...
  19. Kettlebell Sport specific conditioning

    If you train a sport that requires conditioning what is the best way to develop that conditioning? 1) Train your sport to develop conditioning and then train only strength in the gym to allow your conditioning systems to recover more optimally for sports training or 2) to train both strength...
