    Programming Improv Heavy Kb Snatches

    I have recently gotten to 20 sets of 10 kb swings with 72lbs. This is the heaviest I have access to. I am planning to maintain my swings and keep perfect form by doing 10x10 and TGU’s like S&S (I have achieved (m)simple, @120lbs body weight) I am considering doing snatches, but not snatches for...

    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...

    Other/Mixed Strongman, sandbags and rehab

    So I've recently had a few things happen in my lifting career. Firstly I've injured my hip, seen a physio, discussed what to do and agreed on what I can and can't do for the next month. It's not actually very restrictive, just a lot lighter than I'd like. That said I will be patient and spend...
