    Default Kettlebell TGUs, C/Ps and S&S

    In the near future I want to begin again with kettlebell training. Since Feb I have been doing CC as a break from lifting iron and for recuperative purposes. Shoulders feel great. And I have dropped some more weight. Have made good progress especially with my one arm push ups. I can descend all the way down to the floor under full control without collapsing with my right arm. Left arm still needs to catch up. But I really miss the IRON. Originally I was to do a full year of BW trng. And I am waivering about commiting a full year with CC. I don't want the guilt hanging over me for not doing a full year. But who knows maybe I will just do the whole year and be done with it. But I have been reading up on The "Simple & Sinister" program - a revamped and improved version of the Program Minimum. I am REALLY looking forward to beginning this journey. Then from there I want to revisit RoP. But this time BEFORE I embark on RoP I feel it would be a great idea to ensure I can TGU a 32kg ( or heavier) bell 5-10 reps alt each arm. In the past I believe ( no, I know ) I gave TGUs a short shrift. Thought I could just move on and start doing the presses and did not spend adequate time with the TGU. I now know that I was not "bullet proof" enough to handle presses. Any thoughts on doing heavy TGUs before embarking on the presses?...Dennis

    Heavy get ups are greatly under rated;the press is like the bench press--nobody asks (orcares ) what you can get up but its all about how much can you press.
    The S and S program works very well-- work on feeling the exercises and putting in the time and the gradual transition to heavier weights will happen.From my experience,the get up is more beneficial for overall body strength and mobility than the press and is more shoulder friendly.You can do the program 3-4x/week(it doesnt need to be done daily) and continue with the OAPUs/pullups on alternate days--you worked hard to develop these skills--why would you want to lose them?

    You are right about continuing with oaps/pull ups. Maybe if I lose a few more pounds I can do the oapu ( TNW style). I will do that. And 3-4x/week sounds great for the S&S...Dennis
