Where would S&S fit under this umbrella?
There was a thread on this with some impressive pics, starting from here:On the serious side of a funny comment - none of them will improve how good do you look naked, unless you are overweight .
Source: The Quick and the Dead vs Strong Endurance™—What is the Difference? | StrongFirstPavel said:Q&D and A+A (e.g., in its simplest form, 5 high power swings or snatches OTM, or on the minute) are highly complementary. Q&D builds more and bigger mitochondria and A+A makes them function better. (The technical terms are “mitochondrial biogenesis” and “mitochondrial respiration,” respectively.) [...] S&S was designed to stimulate both MT biogenesis and respiration. (Specialized regimens for either—Q&D and A+A—are more effective but less efficient.)
Pavel in Q&D said:As a result, a relative beginner lacks the intensity needed to produce the desired metabolic events, finds the Q&D protocol ridiculously easy, and only nets a partial adaptation. S&S, which on the power-to-acid continuum lies somewhere between Q&D and HIIT, is the perfect program for this athlete.
No no, it's fine. I just wanted to point out that these type of plans can transform your physique even when starting out lean (but don't have to, if you are already experienced with barbells etc.). They were and are transformational for me.@Bauer, my best body composition was when I was lifting the barbell, upper/lower split, 4 days a week. Squatting and dead-lifting 2 days a week. On creatine.
When I have started with kettlebells after that I have lost strength and muscle definition. I have pictures to prove it.
But this is all kind of obvious of course.
What I have gained was - shoulder stability, flexibility and conditioning. My grip was never an issue.
For the rest of your post - it's kind of like quoting the bible in the church. Yeah, I have read those books too. I would be interested in additional information beyond the one written in Pavel's books. Or - a personal experience.
Oh, @Bauer, just to clarify - this is not a beginning of an argument, that is just sharing my information. Thanks for answering to me in your post.
