Re: Kettlell sport for fitness and pulling

I never anticipated that KB work would improve pull ups. Well... i anticipated :)) Pavel, fwiw, said that with KB presses, if you actively pull the bell down with the lat, that this would improve pullups. What were your starting pullup numbers? How long did you focus on KB sport? What lifts did you...

Re: Kettlell sport for fitness and pulling

So by pulling you are referring to pull ups and such? I never anticipated that KB work would improve pull ups. It's just a completely different movement pattern. Deadlifts, depending on your strength and type of pull might be a different thing. Meaning KB work could certainly help deadlifts. I don't...

Re: Essential Kettlebelling

By the way, kettlebells accompanied all my childhood and youth. Every gym at every school had them, they were always in the corner somewhere in every place that had some sort of training. Usually 32, I saw 24 and 16 kg only in the early 80-s. Main exercises were not GS related - GS was formally set...

Re: Essential Kettlebelling

I think you are saying something different though.....maybe even backwards? As is well known on this forum this is not unusual when I am involved in a conversation. But let me illustrate something. One guy on SF asks about his snatch form. Someone replies - too much squat, so that the lift is turne...

Re: Essential Kettlebelling

But if that's true, how is it not the case that more weight, more reps, more volume doesn't accomplish those ends better? Maybe V.F. can't strict press a 32 kg bell for 911 reps, but I would be willing to be that he can strict press one more times than any HS instructor anywhere. 1. Because more we...

Re: Deadlift help

This is one of the counter intuitive things.......you do not have to squeeze tight to hold more weight than you can deadlift. Look at it this way....have him go to a rack and put the pins at mid thigh or higher. Have him put 225kg on the bar. Can he lift and lock out? Yes. Did he need to squeeze the...

Relax. I'm enjoying the discussion and not trolling, so take it in a positive light. Fighting is what we do here, newguy.

Re: Essential Kettlebelling

I am never wrong when I'm right. There is nothing you can do with a kettlebell that GSers can't do better. Juggling, body re-composition, etc. It's not all relative. That's why a guy who has excelled at GS can do non-GS things with a KB that no one else can approach. Who are these GS guys doing non...

Re: Essential Kettlebelling

Well, to be fair RKC was preaching Hard Style. The idea of which I personally dislike as well. A lift is a lift, and it doesn't matter if you do it for 100 reps or one. GS snatch, for example, is fluid and elegant, so why would you try do it some other way? Below is Khvostov snatching 24 kg, fuckin...

Re: Secular Trends in Obesity (i.e. Why We're Fatter)

The physical activity component seems to be misleading. I "exercise" more than my grandfather did. My grandfather was far more physically active. I think that if you replace 5 to 8 hours of moving, of building, of cleaning, etc. with 1 hour of exercise the net result will be a decrease in calories u...

What kind of martial arts? It makes sense. Repeated explosive power efforts..... Judo and Muay Thai, mostly. I can see both of those being really difficult on a serious low carb keto diet.

When it comes to meat only/keto low carb diets and exercise. For me - Low level cardio (think 120-130 beats per minute) doable, but tough. I will get winded and tired on the elliptical.
