    Default Training to failure in girvek sport?

    Anybody who does the sport ever train to failure once in a while. I know Pavel is against training to failure when it comes to your 1 rep max but how bout high rep snatches.

    Default Yes, occasionally

    For the begining girevik, I suggest lots of sets short of failure to ingrain technique. Learning proper technique will add more to your count than training to failure. I've been able to take people from 20 jerks to 30 jerks in one day, just by correcting their technique.
    Once you've achieved good technique (which can always be improved), then it's a different story.http://www.FitnessYouCanUse.com

    Default A strange side effect of kb training

    when I used to train with normal free weights, training to failure was my bread and butter, but from when I train regularly with kb,I prefer multiple short sets, and failure is something I avoid. I am simply too scared to hurt my self and have then no possibility to train again with my kbells, because a injury with the kb is much more painfull than in a normal training, but most of all because the simple joy i'm having with kb is something I want to have for more and more in the future.
    Strange, for a former hard-core bodybuilder and powerlifter, but deeply true.
