I know Pavel eats one meal a day (as per his recent appearance on the Joe Rogan podcast), but do you think the 16/8 two meals a day is more inline with hard training and active people? Judging by your log here you are always doing something, going somewhere, and training. Basically the 16/8 two meals a day most of the time and if you get pinched OMAD?

Got you. Bcaa around training, 16/8 fasting schedule, two meals a day (lunch and dinner), and S&S.
What are your thoughts on OMAD (one meal a day)? Good bad or really depends
There are many different options of IF - do what works for you and suits your lifestyle. I do occasionally OMAD, or 24 hours fast.

Last week I had some painful neck issues - honestly, I don't know the cause. It may have been MMA (clinch, ground work), it may not - one day I just woke up with super stiff neck and pain, so I skipped my usual training and focused more on mobility, stretching, relaxation, walks. Back to the strength training, easier session.

Today's practice: Solid S&S
  • goblet squats - 3 sets of 5
  • 10x10 one-arm swings
  • 10x1 get-ups
All with 40 kg.

Pavel, I just re-read your article about hanging. I recently installed a pull-up bar in my home just so I could start working on it!

My grip is pretty strong and I can hang for a full minute. Do you advise doing this daily?

- although there is a grip benefit, it is not the primary reason of this particular type of hanging
- my lats get often tight, I need to work on overhead mobility, and when I lift heavy, spinal decompression feels great. So I do it daily. As for you - I don't know, depends on your needs - it can range anywhere from daily practice throughout a day to easy maintenance work 2x/week.

Today's practice: Simple & Sinister
  • goblet squats - 40-48-48, 3 sets of 5
  • II-I (medium volume-low intensity-high density) one-arm swings - 40-48-40-48-40; 100 swings total (sum of left and right).
  • II-I (medium volume-low intensity) get-ups: 40-48-40-48-40 ; 10 get-ups total (sum of left and right)
Another easy training. And truly easy - 40 feels like 24 when I started kettlebell training ago. I ask myself - is it the same thing with the age?

This prompted him to relocate to the United States, where he lived most of his life.⁣
