Re: Two-Arm Jerk in GS: Really Worth It?

Is the double rack position really an ideal posture to want to develop though? ...particularly for average people with no goal of competing who probably spend most of their time sat at a desk or looking at phones etc Iirc the original VF WKC fitness protocol was all single bell wasn't it? Exactly. ...

Re: Back to KBs

I find it is. Snatch plus jerk ends up with a lot more volume over the long haul. I prefer LC because it’s more of a one stop shop for this kind of strength endurance.

Re: Iranian wrestlers interval workout

Report, comrade?

I’ve done similar intervals using 2x32kg when I was gearing up for a GS comp. It seemed to help with wind and general muscle fatigue.

Re: Two-Arm Jerk in GS: Really Worth It?

I don’t fault the logic there. I can see the point of both. From VF, he felt that the mobility aspect of a good rack wasn’t always possible for some folks hence the notion of going heavier with a single bell. In a perfect world, I say do both. But for average folks that complain that the rack positi...

In the notion of stand alone programs, I think it’s hard to fault the original Fast Tens as a solid starting point.

Re: Kettlell sport for fitness and pulling

Just checking in. But yeah, LC with 2x32s kept me in the low 400’s on deadlift without much issue. Pull-ups are always something that just need to be in your programnif you are able to do them.

Pushing the envelope. 10 mins @ 42kg LCPP

So slowly building the volume and strength with this beasty. The first 2 minutes were rough finding the groove. After that it eased up a little and I got smoother. Hoping to hit 50-60 reps with this relatively soon. Bodyweight is slowly coming down as I gear up for a BJJ match in April. Cheers. http...

Re: Strong Sport benefits and programming?

Simply put it’s 4 mins of OALC OR biathlon 4 mins OAC followed by 4 mins of OAJ, all with only one hand switch. Weights are heavier (32kg or higher) & the base pace is faster (8 rpm). I liked it. It’s single bell so there aren’t as many flexibility issues at play and it requires less specialization....

I am thinking that the next step is to slowly push this to 20 mins whilst spending more time on the mats.
