    By virtue of your asking the question, the answer is no.
    Or perhaps, if you have specific needs/wants, you could try out your idea and see whether it works for you. In ETK for example Pavel has you skip one arm pushups on the variety days if you're doing NW at the same time as the RoP/PM. But some people have a fast recovery time and maybe they could do it.Or maybe they just want to be good at one arm pushups.

    Another example: swings, getups and snatches are awesome. But I have other STGs other than general fitness, etc: 5 perfect one arm pushups each arm, 20 consecutive pullups, 50 consecutive perfect form pushups, 20 consecutive pistols each leg. So I've added to the base program, and I've got a good program tailored specifically to me, that works for me. I'm not overtraining either.

    Just wanted to say that. I haven't had any questions which is why I didn't register earlier. I might log on from time to time to post PRs, fervent thanks to Pavel, etc.
    What do the experts think?

    The main reasoning behind that rule is that inexperienced people shouldn't be trying to design programs. If you have to ask whether or not it's ok to change a certain thing, you probably don't know enough to be making changes. Or as Pavel puts it (ETK, pg 161) "If you have to ask how much it costs, you can’t afford it."

    Update (April 21, 2009): I have moved the majority of 0311bravo's videos to another post further down because he added his Double Kettlebell Work video today. I couldn't add it to where it was originally because I was exceeding the character limit for the initial post. I hope that doesn't mess up anything in terms of organization.

    I would also like to add that I'm glad that the views on this FAQ are going to be exceeding 3000 soon, meaning that people have been continually looking at this FAQ.

    As always, if you have additional suggestions, please include them, thanks.

    I enjoyed the reading and advice I get from different people on the subject of the different muscle hypertrophial effects on different muscles ( heart / body ), but I think it would be more beneficial to put it all in one place for instant accessibility. I find it takes a long time to find the advice I and many people want and need to have. So I think it would be a good idea to start a new thread in the mega thread for hypertrophy.

    This would be a great idea, I see many people on this forum ask about hypertrophy based training. However, as hypertrophy is not my primary goal, I am not well versed in the websites, resources, etc. on hypertrophy based training.

    If you would like to provide some links that are unbiased, and have great training results, feel free to come back in here and post, and I will dedicate one of the posts above to Hypertrophy based strength training. However, I would like to advise that the Party probably would not like seeing something like a Muscle & Fitness type post. Keep us posted on your idea (pun intended).

    I have a question, what does GS training mean?
    Fear of doing things isn't preventing you from dying, it's preventing you from living

    Pain is good. It makes you know that you are still alive.

    It means Girevoy Sport. It is the sport of specifically training with Kettlebells. From what I know, it involves using the most energy conserving methods to get the most reps for an exercise, such as the Jerk. Repetitions in this sport go extremely high, and the training is different than the Hard Style method of training.

    I will add GS to the abbreviations list in the first post, as well as HS for hard style, thank you for bringing that up.

    If you need more info, Google will give you a general idea of what it is about.
