Re: Introductory GS Materials or Recs

Turd has a point. I hurt myself more than once with ballistic kettlebell lifts, mostly as the result of the short man syndrome and the ego that couldn't fit inside my slender frame. On the other hand, if you start slow and progress gradually the risk of injury shouldn't be higher than with any other...

When Pavel first started marketing KBs and the RKC book it was with the pitch that it was like Olympic lifting for the working man and could be easily learned without a coach. Then they took off and suddenly everyone needed a $$$$ cert or they would kill themselves.
This precisely.

Re: Koklyaev vs A.Emelianenko

The idea of a weightlifter fighting an MMA fighter seems a little unreasonable. Koklyaev is a very strong dude, and it would help fighting an average fighter of smaller size and strength. Emelyanenko, however, is someone I would classify as elite, and so I think Koklyaev is taking on more than he ca...

Re: Introductory GS Materials or Recs

I personally prefer one arm swings. Switching every rep it is a very good warm up also.

More detailed video on the swing https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nGqMzWH5eo0 As I understand it, second knee bend when the kettlebell swings up is a big no-no on StrongFirst.

Re: Pavel Tsatsouline is a Fraud by Steve Cotter

Fuck'em. It is impossible to have a conversation at SF forum.

The same if you challenge him to a discussion: e...

Re: Kettlell sport for fitness and pulling

Fitness is specific. I don't think Yakutian peg-top is going to improve pull-ups either. If you want to improve pull-ups - do pull-ups.

Re: Essential Kettlebelling

I will be honest, I didn't do much of it myself. The main one - one arm press. Also, one arm cleans, one-sided squat (KB in one arm), juggling, two bell press. Not much that I can remember. My wife was a serious runner in her teens (800 m and 400m with hurdles), and she tells me they did deep jumps ...

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 ...
