    Hi, I was wondering if anyone has used the Pre-competition weekly armed forces routine from the soldier be strong manual in the Russian kettlebell challenge, and if so what results did you see from it?

    Do you have a page number for this routine? I'd be happy to look it up.

    I meant to check on this thread earlier...

    Looking at the program, I think of two things:
    1) It would probably work just fine, as long as the individual doing it had a good sense of when to push hard and when to back off.
    2) There have been many programs developed since then that are both simpler and quite possibly more effective.

    In other words, it looks like a decent program, but seeing as it was published quite some time ago, there has likely been quite a bit of improvement in the realm of hardstyle kettlebell programming. The real question is, what is your goal? What results do you want to see? If you want to just do it because it looks like a fun program, then I would just go ahead and do it, but if you have a specific purpose in mind, I'd like to understand your current capabilities and training goals.
