Re: Kettlebells for Running

Well... now that we have established that S&S sucks at being a standalone program, let's discuss what would be a nice all-around KB centric program. My choices would be: - The Armor Building Complex (2 cleans, 1 press, 3 squats) on the minute plus pull ups. - Left of Passage: 3x(1,2,3) of some clea...

Re: Kettlebells for Running

Redditors are, in general, myopic in their acquisition of knowledge. I read that thread, but am not going to start arguing on Reddit with the group with people who get their knowledge third or fourth hand. Really?

I live in Australia and am so fucking grateful we don’t have guns. I’ve lived half my life here and half in the UK. Never seen a gun. (Apart from at a country show with big old muskets).

Re: 2017, new shit?

Running.

Started running again in January. Done an 8k race and two half marathons so far since. Recently started adding a bit of trails too.

For a good chunk of this year been doing around 100 push-ups a day.

No rowing, no kettlebells.

Re: My Experiment

Fwiw there is absolutely no benefit to using a high drag on the erg. Drop it down to somewhere between 110-125 (130 max). Even Olympic pros wouldn't train higher than that. Keep your stroke rate low 18-22 Biggest problem I had with using HR on the erg is temperature/airflow. Unlike running or cyclin...

Plan nothing. Your life will be turned upside down and you will have no idea - for a while at least.

Can't have been that much benefit from the shoes, pacers and track etc as the other two didn't come close. Real shame he missed it but the 2 hour number was arbitrary really. Just sou...

Re: Working legs without squats or machines

Yeah goblet squats.

No you can't do them heavy but awesome for full rom squat movement and I have always found them very good for lower back problems - stretching everything out in the bottom position.

And you can do them every day since they're light.
