    Default Kettlebell swings

    I read on one of the posts on this site something about Pavel stating that there was a way to combine Power to the people and kettle bell swings . Either way I think conditioning well on the power to the people work out is a good question and power to the people is all ready a great way to get people addicted to the barbell (like me) one step closer to kettle bells. An easy accessible idea of how to incorporate swings into power to the people would bring them in that much farther. Also I think conditioning is the one near down side I can see to an other wise simple step by step outline to greatness.

    So conditioning well on power to the people and even better swings well on power to the people would be amazing

    Don't believe this was covered yet: what to do after accomplishing ROP.

    Alright, I updated the original post with those two links and placed it where, I believe, makes the most sense. Thank you for contributing, Comrade Josef.

    I've never done a PTTP cycle, and I do not own the book or the DVD. I don't know how you would combine to two. If you would be willing to find a link, or an article on it, and then post it here, I would be glad to update the original post.

    I have no idea what to do after accomplishing the ROP. Someone will have to chime in on that. Since I have not finished the ROP, I have not asked about this matter.

    1. What is GTG?

    Read Naked Warrior.

    "Grease the groove", a system of training for strength without burning out. The gist is to do a lot of sets of reps well short of your maximum throughout the day. For example, if you can do 8 pull-ups, throwing everything you have into them, your sets should be 3-5 reps throughout the day. Don't work to exhaustion. Don't even get close. Every so often take a whole day off, then test your new maximum. Works well with pull-ups and one-legged squats.

    2. What are ladders?

    Ladders are another method of training for strength without burn-out. You do a rep, take a short rest, do two reps, take a short rest, etc. until you reach a number well short of your maximum. Then you stop, take a longer rest, then start again at 1. For example, using 8 pull-ups as your maximum, you would do 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 with short rests in-between, then a longer rest afterwards. Generally, the rest between rungs of the ladder should be about how long it would take a training partner to do the rung after you. The rest between ladders depends on your goals: very short for muscle-building and pump, very long for GTG-style practice. Works well with one-arm presses with a DB or KB, also with pull-ups.

    3. Who is Pavel Tsatsouline?

    Pavel is a physical trainer and consultant to various US agencies on strength, conditioning, and combat. He is a native of the Soviet Union and worked with Soviet special forces before the fall of communism. He emigrated to America, taking his knowledge of kettlebells and Russian/Soviet powerlifting training with him.

    4. What is Hardstyle?

    Hardstyle is a catch-all term for training with Dragon Door products. Very very generally, it boils down to reverse-engineering the techniques that the masters do unconsciously, then compiling and explaining those techniques in plain language. Such techniques include: compound movements, appropriate timing of body tension, power breathing, not training to failure or exhaustion, strength as practice, doing fewer things better, etc. Hardstyle is more than just kettlebell training.

    5. Why are kettlebells so expensive?

    They're solid chunks of iron, filed and polished so that you can grab them without tearing your skin. That takes work.

    6. Why kettlebells? Why not dumbbells?

    If you have dumbbells and like them, use them. There's nothing wrong with the DB clean and press or snatch or swing.

    Thanks, Comrade Wild Pegasus, I have added your information to the fourth post (I couldn't get it on the first post, I was over the character limit for a post).

    Default Great Idea

    Just a few more for your consideration:

    1. It seems like the Fighter Pull-up Program gets mentioned periodically:

    https://500230143759542337-a-1802744...-4yZnucA%3D%3D

    2. With the MVO2 being the new 'rage' and torn calasus seeming to be a more frequent occurance the following information may be usefull.

    Rifs Blog: How to tape your hands.

    3. Old Hardstyles hold a treasure trove of information, especially the 'Fast Tens' program in the Winter 2005 issue.

    Those can be found here at DD, or a Brad Nelson's site.

    Kinetic Edge Performance – Articles


    Just my 2 cents.

    I just added all three of your recommendations, they come up quite often. Thank you for your contribution. Especially the Kinetic Edge Performance Articles, I was looking for Older Versions of HardStyle myself.

    Alright, I added it to the FAQ, thank you. That is something good to bring up.

    Also, everybody, if you enjoy the thread, please rate it. Thanks!

    Which of Pavel's stretching books should I get?
    I don''t know the answer myself but I think it would be good for someone to answer it and put it in the thread.
