Re: Pavhole's new book is out today

It's kind of funny, the best GS snatchers can do more work per unit of time than the best Hard Style snatchers, and they can keep that work going far beyond when the HS folks stop Yes, yes, and they're (actual, not make-believe) elite athletes too. Fine. But what do the force-plate studies say?! HA...

Re: Pavhole's new book is out today

Just yesterday I was listening to his lecture on YouTube, entitled "Lecture for Sambo National Team" (No leopards there), and overall theme is very reminiscent of science material of Pavel's book. The lecture is nothing short of brilliant, and I may undertake the mammoth task of translating it - tw...

Re: Insertion into handle: Rudnev vs. OTW

Thanks, I'm starting to get it. I found I had to open my hand more when I start the drop, and then I can catch the handle on the fingers instead of the palm.

Re: Pavhole's new book is out today

Instead of swings, sprint up your street 50 yards. Walk down, do 15-20 pushups. Repeat 10x. I need a book for that? Do NOT attempt that shit until you've mastered at least Simple or you will FOOK yourself up bad. What you've just outlined works, but only for advanced tactical MMA motherfuckers and ...

Re: Kettlebells for Running

A recent thread over the SF forum sprouted a heated discussion where some asshole was apparently very angry at Shaf for stealing Pavel's ideas. It was a fun reading. Link please. Also, WTF is this new thing where they hold their fists up in fighting guard? Maybe I'm a hypocrite, but I chuckle at th...

After loads of rear-delt work and putting a lot more rowing and overhead pressing into my routines, it's stayed away for a long time *fingers crossed*.
This. That's my $.02. A little bit of band rowing and A's, T's, and Y's every day keeps shoulder pain at bay for me.

Re: Kettlebells for Running

According to the first Amazon review, apparently by a tame SF insider with pre-publication access, "If you are a beginner, start with the author's book Kettlebell Simple & Sinister. Seriously. Otherwise you'll hurt yourself." I'm excited to see how they'll explain the danger to which you'll subject ...

Re: Insertion into handle: Rudnev vs. OTW

A post with "insertion" in the title and the first response doesn't have a GIF of tentacle porn or even a dildo? Is this still IGX?! Did everyone get abducted by UFOs and replaced with bots controlled by Baptists?

Insertion into handle: Rudnev vs. OTW

I'm on a Rudnev kick, because his stuff is working better than the OTW that I burned out on long ago. In today's act of heresy, I'm questioning whether I should be thrusting my hand farther into the handle than VF taught. VF's doctrine was to rest the handle on "the hip of the hand," the bone I woul...

Re: Of Pistols and BW Squats

Are pistols safe for knees? My knees are healthy (for 46) and I have a little experience with pistols, but I'll reluctantly resist the urge to do them again if they're one of those things where there's a risk that's not worth the reward.

GS Sweat Management and Shoes

I've benefitted from changing to the Rudnev snatch technique, where you lay the arm against the torso as soon as possible, but it's made for one problem I didn't have so much before: sweat on my hand. I thought I'd solve that with wristbands, but it turned out to be more that when I touch my arm to ...

What's the IG Hive Mind's opinion in 2019 of pistols? I see a lot of them in training logs.

Also, Hindu squats vs. flat-footed air squats? What does Rudnev use?

Do they even have KB competitions anymore?
I've been looking for them--for some reason the bug has bitten me again--but they're pretty few. And yet on the webz it looks like there's no shortage of people who are into it. Seems ripe for those modern-day "postal matches" with corroborating video.
