Re: Pavhole on Rogan

I did read where DJ said the kettlebell community split and is now dead. He absolutely nailed it. Fredo had a lot to do with that. Interesting. Got a link or something? I don't follow DJ closely--he writes a lot and often I don't find it easy to follow his train of thought--but when he deigns to co...

Re: Pavhole on Rogan

another peculiar fact: there is not a single interview with Pavel in Russia, only translations from Western sources, even though his books have been translated to Russian and his name is very well known in the fitness circles over there. This. Even on the Russian internet, nobody knows a thing abou...

Re: Pavhole on Rogan

If Pavel's hiding something about his background, I bet it's not so much a Big Lie (e.g. tubby LARPer in mall dressed in bogus Ranger uniform, gets exposed and humiliated on camera) as a pretty innocuous Don Draper kind of thing, like (and this is 100% speculative fiction )... Maybe he resorted to s...

Re: Pavhole on Rogan

He's also a compulsive liar. We need details! And none of this shit like, "Oh, it's all been said before. Go read the entire fucking IGx archive." I was never a DD insider with a direct line to Denny and shit, and I came a few months late to the IGx party back when The Revolt of the Steve...

Re: Pavhole on Rogan

He is an incredibly good popularizer. Here are game-changing ideas that I learned from Pavel that I would have heard about from no one else:
  • neurological training
  • using frequency and volume
  • low fatigue
  • pulls as an alternative to squats
  • and kettlebells of course--this is obviously

Re: Pavhole on Rogan

I've interviewed/interrogated people for over 30 years and Pavel shows some serious signs of deception throughout this interview. His first response to the question of when he started lifting kettlebells. Raised his arm to answer the question. He was like a cat on a hot tin roof during the whole th...

Onnit 45lb. steel club

I developed chronic elbow pain while powerlifting, and I needed resistance exercise that would let/help them heal. I started by doing sledgehammer rotations for the elbow, a la Diesel Crew, and then I started playing with other leverage moves. Then I started moving a sledgehammer like a meel and was...

Exploding bogatyr head

Some days you get the bogatyr, some days the bogatyr explodes and gets you. But this week the Ukrainian secret service caught the Semtex bogatyr head as it was smuggled through customs. http://www.ssu.gov.ua/sbu/control/en/publish/article;jsessionid=C84DABE7DC43A803375E8F4CBAA21A21.app1?art_id=13284...

Cast Iron KBs vs. competition-sized bells

I'm looking for a 40kg bell. Since I won't use it for GS, I'm tempted to cheap out and get a "Cast Iron" one instead of the competition size. Can anyone with experience weigh in? (E.g. is the handle of the Cast Iron unmanageable thick?)

Gold. http://www.strongfirst.com/topic/smolov-cycle-with-ss/

Dude: "I just started Smolov. I am going to add 130# to my squat in six weeks. And I'm going to add S&S. But don't worry, just twice a week. You know, for recovery."

Pavel: "Um, maybe just take a walk instead."

Re: Kettlebell Simple & Sinister

You'll run into issues far before you get into the 48s, what issues? I don't know, but something gay will pop up, it always does with these 'too simple' routines. It typically has to do with pattern overload and boredom If it happens, it will be elbow bursitis from the TGU for me. But if Allah will...

Re: Kettlebell Simple & Sinister

I needed to de-fat, and for me that means KBs. I agree that S&S is well worth $10 even if you've been doing cattleballs since the pre-RKC days. I can understand why some people are comparing it to ETK (which I hated), but this is a much more appealing book. First, the price. Second, I always lik...
