You're basically accusing Pavel, Dan John, Brett Jones, Geoff Neupert, Mark Reifkind, and a host of other SF instructors who have trained - and continue to train - athletes at high levels with kettlebells, of subjecting their athletes to hucksterism and propaganda. You're accusing Brendan Hetzler, Mel Siff, and Brett Contreras of talking out of their backsides about what their foce plates and EMGs have showed them. Apparently, you're unaware that these guys have done detailed testing on multitudes of subjects - both trained and untrained - in order to make the observations they make. You really think these guys never thought to measure ground force reactions associated with plyometrics?!!? You really think all the Standing Vertical Jump increases different instructors have accomplished with light snatches heavily accelerated is what? a lie? Decreases in four-corner drill times for the NFL combine? Also lies? Or you just haven't gotten to that chapter in your undergrad textbook yet? You don't find kettlebells to be your cup of tea. Fine. How bout you do us all a favor and shutyer piehole about them - at least until you have some vague idea what an overspeed eccentric is and how it relates to force.
