    Kettlebell Combining A&A swing and snatch protocols for SFG I certification?

    Hey folks, I've created a goal for myself to earn SFG I possibly Chicago in April, if not then scrap until Chicago next year. It's the closest one to me where I could drive and I have family in the area and wouldn't have to pay hotel fees. Someday I would like to start a class and give private...
  2. 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!
  4. 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...

    Hello All, just a quick question currently doing great progress on the one arm pushup practice. better than any program ever before. pistols have been on point so nothing new there I'd like to take my swings up a notch since they're pretty much the only other exercise I practice besides...
  6. Other/Mixed Left Glute Injury on Kettlebell Swings

    Hey everybody, Could use advice from anyone who has experienced symptoms like this before. Over the last couple of weeks, I've had a twinging pain in my left glute and the part of my back directly above my hip -- though only on my left side -- whenever I swing. I tried to stretch that area --...
  7. Kettlebell ROP swings

    I apologize if this has already been covered, but I haven't been able to find it. Anyways, I'm planning on starting ROP and will unfortunately only have access to a single 28kg kettlebell. For me this is a good weight for presses but two handed swings feel very light. How should I best...

    Bodyweight Dan John on Pull Ups

    As with most anything Dan John I thought this: Pull Ups was an outstanding read. I'm more of a rep with bodyweight rather than add weight to my pull ups guy. However, the line on "if all you did was pull ups and swings or goblet squats you would be doing pretty well" had me nodding. Imagine...

I've read a lot of stuff (mainly from Pavel and this forum) and watched a couple of videos (like Delaine Ross' tutorials) and I try to incorporate all of the helpful cues. My technique has already gotten a lot better. Yet...

    Kettlebell S&S Non-Stop Swing Testing

    Hello, Background: I can strongly perform all sets of S&S with the 32k. With OHS, my rest interval is about 1:45. With TGU, my rest interval is about 4:30. I can do this most any day, and have hit it 3 days in a row. My focus is technique and power. Rest periods will come down naturally...

    Kettlebell Swing Biomechanics

    I've been searching the threads & the S&S book for more on this thought, but figured I'd post anyway to see if I have myself straight on this. Thanks in advance if it's been answered elsewhere!! I've been working thru the S&S routine again, really getting my swing basics down again with the...
  14. Barbell Workout Programming

    I am new to this forum, so this is like a "long time listener, first time caller" moment for me. Recently I finished an 8 week 'program' I created to begin exercising again consistently. I met my goals with this program, but I am looking for some advice moving forward. I have many goals, but I...

  17. Kettlebell 2 to 1 Handed Swings progression

    Curious. When progressing through the KB sizes to reach the "simple goal". it is suggested by Pavel that you will eventually transition to all one handed swings. I am curious how others approach this. When you start, lets say with a 16Kg bell, do people simply progress with that bell from 2h...

    Kettlebell Abdominal function and breathing

    Hello, Can someone explain how the abdominals are supposed to function when breathing, while bracing (including anal lock/ pelvic floor engagement) under heavy load? Such as during swings or deadlifts. At times I'm not sure if my abdominals are being maximized throughout a lift. Any help is...
