    I started a thread on the barbell forum about exercise selection for a 3x week Easy Strength program.

    Easy Strength Exercise Selection

    One of the posters made a comment about how it is more productive or practical for non athletes to maintain the squat but develop the hinge. That made me wonder if a double Kettlebell program would be perfect for Easy Strength.

    The ES I have in mind is described in the book as 2 or 3 big bang exercises 2 or 3 times per week, around 10 reps per exercise focusing on doubles and triples, sometimes doing 5’s. Since Kettlebell swings or cleans have a shorter time under tension would this work for the ES program? Cleans, presses and pullups would just about fill the bill. Include a form of squat during warmup.

    I actually did something like this. I was doing the floor press because my overhead was not so good for my shoulder. Yeah in-general it works. Heavy cleans+weighted pullups fried my back by day 17, i also did front squats and they were effective but you had to keep them light (anytime I went heavy I didn't feel so great the next day) so as a warm up would be optimal. I imagine double clean and press, pull ups would be great. double the volume for ballistics and keep it to swings if your doing pull ups.

    There was an article on here recently, "Easy Reg Park", which is 4 days plus 2 S&S, maybe worth checking it out? May not fit exactly.....
