I gave you the friggin answers via email yesterday.

For the ten trillionth time:

LOW REPS MULTIPLE SETS FOR KETTLEBELL COMPETITION IS ONLY THE FIRST STEP TO GET THE VOLUME.

THEN YOU GRADUALLY INCREASE THE REPS PER SET WHILE COMPRESSING THE REST TIMES BETWEEN SETS UNTIL YOU HAVE 1 SET OF THE TARGET DESIRED NUMBER OF REPS. IF YOU RESPECT RECOVERY TIMES YOU WON'T SUFFER INJURIES OR TORN UP HANDS.

Am I missing something? Have all you guys tried this and found that it doesn't work?....I don't think so.

WHY IS THIS CONSTANTLY UNDER SUCH CONTROVERSY??? WHY IS IT SO HARD TO UNDERSTAND? JUST DO IT AND SHUT THE $%$#k UP ALREADY.

Pavel's elementary instruction in the RKC book in no way conflicts with what the "Russians" are doing. "The Russians" are highly advanced age old traditonal kettlebellers. Americans are still in kindergarten having seen their first kettlebell not much more than 2 years ago.

Alex and Andrey have been kettlebelling long long long before the first kettlebell ever hit the ground in the USA. You no doubt can get to that level eventually but learn to crawl before you start worrying about walking.

I was going to get drunk and pass out for the day...I haven't passed out yet.

BLAH BLAH BLAH...Andy

P.S. I'm an idiot, don't listen me.

my step from "I can't even clean 2x24kg onto the chest" to "I'm officially hit level 1 at state championship" was made in just a 5 months of workouts at home.

if you will start from long-time prepare like a 50 sets of 5 lifts, you will need years.

if you will learn wrong technique at the beginning, it will be very very hard to re-learn it. Habit is a hard thing to change.

My friend started kettlebelling with push-press instead of jerks. He did it about year. Then, when he wanted to compete, he tried to switch technique from push-press to jerk, but it was very hard. He has not a strong character and he leaved GS.

yes, you should learn basic thing first, then make it harder and harder, but don't start with wrong things.

yes, you need to crawl before walking, but you don't need to walking bottom ups (onto the head or arms) before walking onto the legs.

in other things, I'm agree with you, Trip.


P.S. Gav, you may delete this post if it's necessary

Andrey,

It's Andy's original post so I don't give a rats ass if you agree or not. The point of the post IMO is to quit looking for some secret and get to work.

BTW - I started doing push presses as well, reading on of your books helped me nail the jerk.

I agree 100%. there are not secrets, just alot of details. Hard work and strong character are keys to success in any kind of sport.
