    Ivan,

     

    currently using farmers walks and crawls after S&S as a "finisher".  not particularly heavy, I use what ive got which is a 32kg bell in one hand and a 40kg bell in the other, I walk about 15 meters, stop switch hands and walk 15 meters back.  I do them between 5 and 7x per week.  its not much, but the daily practice, just like with S&S, gets me energized and keeps me progressing towards my personal goals

    of course kettle bells build strength.  just in a different way than squats or DL's do.  doesn't make them better or worse than each other though.
