  1. Other/Mixed George Hackenschmidt's workout

    I recently finished "The Way To Live" and man, what a read! If you haven't read it, I highly recommend you pick it up. One thing I don't really grasp yet is the workouts prescribed in there, though. In the book he outlines the "best training method", prescribes daily, twice a day, for all...
  2. Recommendations/Reviews/FS/WTB Aleks Salkin training programs

    How times have changed… Throughout my life seasons have changed. I have gone from going to the gym 6 times a week, living 8 minutes from work, to being married with 3 kids and now travelling 1.5 hours to work and the same if not longer in traffic for a return trip… 12 hour shifts… whinge whinge...

    Coc Gripper Progression

    Hey guys. I'm relatively new to gripping. I'm currently 2 1/2 months in and am millimeters from closing the #2. As a 5'9" 138 lb male, I feel that is a decent progression. What would some of you have to say about that?

    Other/Mixed Living and Training With Crohn’s Disease

    On Monday, May 2nd, I was diagnosed with Crohn's disease. Before my diagnosis, I was trying to gain weight and muscle through hypertrophy training. Results were slow, and I was in a lot of pain due to eating foods that were hurting my body. Other symptoms of the disease affected me as well such...

    Kettlebell The cold, cold bells!

    I train either outside or in a room with no heat (usually- there’s a woodstove but I rarely bother to light it unless we are using that room for something else. Just a workout is hardly worth the effort.) so yeah I feel you. I also train barefoot 99% of the time, and man that floor/ground gets...

    Kettlebell Opinions of Training Plan Moving Forward

    Hello everyone! I’m on my 3rd of 4 weeks away from my kettlebell, and missing it a lot. I haven’t been away from one since March 2020. During this time, I’ve just done NW and LSD running to get something in. One of the ways I have coped with being away from my bells has been studying @Pavel...

    Kettlebell Supplementary Training to Enhance S&S?

    Hi everyone. I’ve been training S&S everyday by the book for over a month now, and I was wondering if anyone has any ideas of supplementary training to enhance my S&S training?

    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...
  13. 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...

    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...

  18. 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...

    I am a 25 year old environmental engineer. My job requires me to frequently work outside carrying heavy loads and hiking through a variety of harsh terrain. I work long hours as a field lead in all variations of terrible weather and conditions (McCarteny Rose is not my bff). It is critical...
  20. 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?
