I recently saw some of "Pavel's" videos on youtube. I heard Pavel's Interview on the Tim Ferris show and was fascinated. From what I have been able to gather, I have been doing everything the hard way for the last 20 years. I have a question regarding kettlebell training with children, as I am curious about. I have a 13 year old and a 11 year old, and I was wondering if there is a methodology and thoughts on how to develop a program for them. As I listened to the interview on building strength it appeared that the techniques were geared toward sneaking up on strength instead of killing yourself with lift to failure methods (which would make me nervous for my kids, especially when I just figured out that this is nuts). For example 3 to 5 reps... lots of sets at 60% of max effort. To my mind, this seems to alleviate some of the dangers for children. I would like for them to begin to engage in some form of strength training activity that is both beneficial and fun. I have to admit, I don't know if it is due to the dynamic nature of the KettleBell, but it is hard not to like. I am an avid Mt Biker and Cyclist, and it shares what I will refer to as the same flow as those sports. I have only attempted some rudimentary movements mixed in with pushups in between and in the last week I am sore in places I did not know existed, and I don't feel like I am going to pass out after a workout. I actually find myself craving a workout to get the dynamic experience again. I have a friend who is a PT who had always told me that strength has as much to do with neural pathways as it does with muscle mass, and that isolating exercises do not provide the same recruitment through the nervous system as more multi functional exercises. At the time I think my eyes glazed over a bit, but now that I have experienced it... Its a different feeling.
