    Kettlebell Supplementary Training to Enhance S&S?

    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...
  5. Kettlebell Stuck with ETK and transitioning to 32kg

    Hi, After initially starting out doing S&S for the first couple of years of kettlebell training and relatively easily achieving "Simple", I decided to take a step back and give myself a better foundation with ETK, since my pressing was not particularly impressive. So since the beginning of...

    Log of Sen

    What up? I'm starting my first log on here and it's going to be a good one. I do a bit of everything with my lifting as I'm basically the walking equivalent of lifting ADD. Before this whole pandemic situation my mainstay was a variation of this push/pull/legs program. I was hitting legs once a...
  8. Other/Mixed Sprint workouts (200m+)

    Hiya- I'm hopefully going to attend university in September, and I wish to take up athletics again. When I was younger, I used to sprint 200M/400M to a pretty decent standard - over time however, I stopped running and started competing in team sports. It's been a while since I've set foot on a...

  10. Kettlebell Sinister or Beast Tamer, which first?

    I'm aware that the title of this post may appear arrogant, believe me, it honestly isn't meant to be so. I have ambitions to achieve both Sinister and tame the Beast within my lifetime. I have to admit that I am not close to either at the moment, so before I patiently start out on what could...

  12. Kettlebell What next sized kettlebell should I go to?

    I can do a good 100 straight reps of two handed kettlebell swings with a 55lb. I'm thinking of moving up. I like the swing, and sticking to that for now. Which size is the best to move to now? The 70lb? Possibly the 80lb?

  14. Other/Mixed Progression to swings

    On the 12/27/2018 StrongFirst podcast, Dr. McGill explains (41:45-42:06) that not everyone can do swings. He said some people need to "build [a] stiffened foundation first." Have any of you worked with students who you realized had to do other training before starting swings? If so, what...

    Kettlebell To wave the load or not? A contrary point of view from Brooks Kubik

    Hi all. I am reading a book by Brooks Kubik, lawyer by trade and a very accomplished lifter by vocation. Look after his credentials to know more about him. The book I am reffering to is called Dinosaur Training. A lot of his ideas resemble the Strong First system and principles. But in one...

    Barbell Squat Standups

    Training again today and thought that I'd pass this along.... I've noticed when squatting and progressing towards heavier weights (95%+), it's a real shocker to the system to stand up in the rack with near max loads. In an effort to "re-arrange the mindset" I worked on just standing up with...
