    Default Neghar fonooni is so impressive!!

    I expect most of you have seen these video's or maybe have even met or know Neghar.

    I have only just come accross here videos, I am so impressed with this lady, her power to weight ratio is amazing and no doubt she has worked very hard to achieve her level of strength and conditioning.

    In this video she snatches a 16kg 130 times in 5 minutes and makes it look so easy.

    Here she uses 2 x 20kg bells for a complex

    Is she the one of the strongest females in the RKC community?

    She is a fantastic advert for what can be achieved through kettlebell strength training, go Neghar!!

    She's good - she's not the most 'capable' though - but that's neither here nor there. She's still at the top.

    Why did she choose to be gloved up for her 5 minutes? . . . I understand the desire to maintain femme hands - but gloves and bells don't mix . . . but that doesn't negate her overall ability very much. Is that a standard approach? Chalk and bag balm at night are ideal combatants for the callused hand issue.

    Silver, what in the world are you talking about? "she's not the most 'capable' though - but that's neither here nor there"? I recall you've said elsewhere that you've been at this a couple years and are now using the 25lb KB. I appreciate your enthusiasm as someone new to these boards, but rather than weighing in on every thread, it might be better to sit back a little and learn from the people who have been studying the hardstyle system and establishing their bona fides over periods of years.

    In this case, the woman you're commenting on probably is one of the most capable around. As for gloves, it just isn't true that they "don't mix" with kettlebells. Gloves aren't for everyone, but they aren't illegitimate either. My copy of ETK even discusses gloves as an option.

    I don't mean to shut you down, but I really think that you could learn some things in the DD system if you'd spend more time listening/inquiring and less time criticizing/advising.

    I think you took my comment, which was a possitive towards her with a question about glove use in general, and thought I was personally attacking her - which I wasn't, just the opposite. And you took offense to it where there was no need to.

    I didn't join this forum to take much concern with you, others - and how you all might view my posting-count. I enjoy discussing these issues, I've learned a lot - and I read almost every thread and post and reply when I have an opinion or something to add that might be relevant. Through my postings, questions and discussions I learn more. The more I post, the more I read, the more I ask, and the more replies are made - the more I learn. I don't see how that should be an issue for anyone.

    If you don't like my postings then just ignore me - that can't be too hard.

    If you have personal issues with me that deal with my forum 'ettiquette' or something then bring it up via pm if it would make you feel better.

    So - do you have anything to say about *her* in particular or did you just jump in to comment about my comment only?

    PM would have been better. Apologies.

    To your questions: she's awesome, and gloves are fine.

    These give the impression, intended or not, that you are stating the indisputable truth. Reading information and forum posts, learning from other's experiences/experiments, is great and all, but the most you're ever going to learn is from going out and training. I believe this is what mcneuen was referring to when he mentioned establishing bona fides.

    At any rate, these are great videos, and the woman in them should be very proud. Thank you for sharing them - other's successes are always great inspiration for the DD community.

    That said, I won't be viewing this thread again, to avoid a pointless internet conflict.

    Very true - good points. I do appologize.

    I have been posting more than I normally would. We're lake-locked here and I'm getting cabin fever. My town is cut off, my college semester ended early because of the flooding but the kids are going to school - I'm bored out of my mind and can't go anywhere and that won't be changing anytime soon it looks like.

    I've been working out every day and getting online obcessively like an adoled schoolchild. . . I'm so sorry, all of you - I'm sure I'm a nuisance! Thanks for understanding.

    I do agree on the subject of Neghar - Someone commented to the video 'she makes it look so easy' - and she does - deceptively easy.

    So who are these other women that can rival Neghar in terms of strength and conditioning?

    I just wrote a longish response which didn't post. So in short...Not Hard Style but the Ice Chamber kettlebell girls are very impressive and humbling.

    I believe you are wrong here. The Ice Chamber girls are EXTREMELY impressive and humbling. Just thought I would point that out.
