Re: Why Aren't You Lifting Barbells?

In my opinion, having done both, the 315 barbell set is the way to go. If all you ever did was various squats, pulls, presses, and jerks up to 315 lbs. you could become a stud. Somebody who can REALLY throw around 2 x 32 kg kettlebells certainly would be too, but the barbell man would both be and l...

Nice. It appears you aren't wrapping your fingers around the handle. Why?
No need for it in the overhead. Relaxing the grip there saves it for cleans.

Re: Why Aren't You Lifting Barbells?

Touché, but we at least add to our reps or more time. Some of us even get heavier kettlebells.

What's a "Half Snatch"?
Standard kettlebell snatch to the overhead position but from overhead you drop to the rack position.

Re: Enter the Croissant

I did the "drinking man's diet" a couple of years ago and got shredded. I was essentially eating a pound + of ground beef with a lot of butter to cook it in and ample amounts of whiskey. A lot of walking/jogging and pushups. It was a bit more loose on the weekends (a lot of beer), but the activity ...

Re: Why Aren't You Lifting Barbells?

Initially I started using KBs because of a shoulder injury from MA; the press from the rack position made upper body pressing feasible again. I saw GS and was interested in the strength endurance aspect, seeing as my only pursuits at the time were MA and cycling. It seemed to be a good fit. A couple...

Re: KB Decathlon

To be fair, I don’t think it was programming so much as it was a “what the hell” challenge workout by one of the kettlebell marathon guys.

Re: Why Aren't You Lifting Barbells?

Depends on the goals, as always. But I don't think you can go wrong with a barbell Easy Strength style. Light squats, deads, presses, increasing the weight only when current one becomes boring. 15 minute session several times a week. Having said that, I think KB ballistics get close in terms of ben...

Re: Why Aren't You Lifting Barbells?

Some points: -BB lifting leaves me sore and stiff -GS at my level keeps me stronger than most in my weight class. The 32s keep my above a 405 deadlift, I can press my bodyweight for reps, and squat over 275 for a few reps. Strength is fine. -GS also gives me a ton of strength endurance as opposed t...

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

Pent and Strongsport were pretty solid ideas, in my opinion. Pent got more praise though. I think the heavier bell in Strongsport took the wind out of folks sails pretty quick.

Re: WKC/AKC/Valery Fedorenko Strong Sport...Strong Lift?

There was a long cycle option and a biathlon, as noted above, option.

Weights began at 32kg and went up from there to 48kg, I think. Goal for LC rank was 8 rpm or better. Biathlon was 12 rpm or better for each lift.
