Re: Kettlell sport for fitness and pulling

Calling me a wrestler is a bit of a long shot. I will try the peg top.

Re: Kettlell sport for fitness and pulling

Fitness is specific. I don't think Yakutian peg-top is going to improve pull-ups either. If you want to improve pull-ups - do pull-ups.

Re: Essential Kettlebelling

I will be honest, I didn't do much of it myself. The main one - one arm press. Also, one arm cleans, one-sided squat (KB in one arm), juggling, two bell press. Not much that I can remember. My wife was a serious runner in her teens (800 m and 400m with hurdles), and she tells me they did deep jumps ...

Re: Essential Kettlebelling

By the way, kettlebells accompanied all my childhood and youth. Every gym at every school had them, they were always in the corner somewhere in every place that had some sort of training. Usually 32, I saw 24 and 16 kg only in the early 80-s. Main exercises were not GS related - GS was formally set ...

Re: Downsizing

I must admit, my obsessive personality is not very conducive of doing things in moderation. My current obsession is BJJ, and I am definitely hitting the mat more often than I should. Given the fact that lots of youngsters (the majority in any BJJ school) don't know how to take things easy my body ge...

I think you are saying something different though.....maybe even backwards? As is well known on this forum this is not unusual when I am involved in a conversation. But let me illustrate something. One guy on SF asks about his snatch form. Someone replies - too much squat, so that the lift is turne...

Deadlift help

A surgeon I work with got into the powerlifting couple of years ago. Strong dude, best deadlift 215 kg, squat around 165 kg and bench 139 kg. For one reason or another his deadlift took a dive - his current (a comp last weekend) is 190 kg. To be honest his squat is way better that the number above, ...

Re: Essential Kettlebelling

Well, to be fair RKC was preaching Hard Style. The idea of which I personally dislike as well. A lift is a lift, and it doesn't matter if you do it for 100 reps or one. GS snatch, for example, is fluid and elegant, so why would you try do it some other way? Below is Khvostov snatching 24 kg, fucking...

Re: Downsizing

Muscle loss is probably inevitable in old age, but you can greatly mitigate it with lifting. Just look at the pictures of Clarence Bass: https://www.cbass.com/ClarenceBass79.htm My concern with ageing is mobility and agility, more than keeping muscle. Though obviously they are all related.

Re: This is the Ideal Male Body

After looking around a bit I am less impressed with our Georgian friend. His bodyweight is 168 kg (372 lbs). Pisarenko's C&J was 265 kg at lower bodyweight (121 kg according to what I could dig out). In other words, Lasha lifted 150% of his BW and Mr. Anatoly more than 200%. Still my hero. And if we...
