    Kettlebell Q+D followed by more Swings

Been experimenting with Q+D (3 days a week) and really enjoying, I do it early morning and rest for 10 or so mins before doing some interval based/anerobic cardio from Tactical Barbell.

    Hi everyone, I have a quick question for those who have tried out the ‘From Simple to Sinister’ training plan Pavel created a few years ago. I only have a 36kg bell available to me, and I’m working on reaching the ‘Timed’ standards. I’ve been training S&S since April now and absolutely love it...
  3. Kettlebell Knee Crepitus - Swings

    Hello, I have been training KBs consistently for about a year now, following simple and sinister and youtube instruction as much as I can. I recently saw an SFG to work on my form a bit. I immediately noticed a difference in my swing (for the better) with just a few tweaks on feet placement...

    Kettlebell How to make swings less boring ...

    I'm ok with boring, but I'm not the only person involved. My daughter is 13, and wants to be stronger in order to be faster for sprinting in the track season in the spring. She is fairly strong already, she can perform a standing back tuck, for example. She has deadlifted 155 at 120 lbs. (In...
  5. Kettlebell Simple easy, beyond... not so much (grip issues with swings beyond 32kg)

    Okay so, I've been using (& loving S&S) for some time now and regularly do 'Simple' timeless a couple of times a week and time myself doing it now and then to make sure I haven't "lost it" over the past couple of years. So far, things are very good in this department. Additionally, I have...

    Have finally decided to log my training. Which I should have done ages ago. Current program is S&S. Today’s session: Swings: 10*10 Emom for 10mins. TGU: 6 each side within 10 mins. Had yesterday off so felt fresh so pushed the TGUs. Swings feeling crisper than ever. Have decreased the...

  8. Barbell How Much Do KB Swings Affect Recovery for Barbell Training?

    Kettlebell Kettlebell Swing Technique Feedback

    Hello everyone, I was wondering if you could give me some feed back on my 2 handed kettlebell swing. I attached a video of me performing the 2 handed swing, the swing feels good but it looks like maybe I’m not getting deep enough in the bottom of the swing. Should I be bending my knees more at...

    I'll start with the crux of my question and add a detailed background later to save folks some time. Question: Other than range of motion and clearance from a doctor, what benchmarks would you want someone to be able to meet before they return to swinging after a back injury? Background: I'm...

  17. Kettlebell Swings as Finishers?

    I'm currently working through 'KettleBell Burn 2.0', by Geoff Nuepert.In it he uses swings as 'finishers', for varying rest/work periods, after a fair amount of strength-based work. I'll admit that I am pretty wiped out by the time these come due, and so they feel very different from the S&S...

    Other/Mixed Gada/Mace critique

    Began swinging the mace a week ago. 360 swings feel much easier to perform and more solid so wanted to post the weaker 10 to 2 swings for more feedback. Long road ahead for improvement and refinement so I appreciate constructive criticism!
  19. Kettlebell 300 Swings a day Challenge

    Hello all. I've recently stumbled upon (and trying my hands at) the 300 swings a day challenge by pat flynn. I read some posts about it on here but it would seem that no one finished it. I've heard of the 10000 swing challenge by Dan John and I'm not interested. This one is a bit...
