    Steve! :confused: :eek: :p :D

    I actually gave my walker away when I learned to walk again. Who knew what a mistake that would be in the long run? I hope someone else benefited from it.

    Remember, Max. The logs laying down are cabers for tossing. The logs standing up are trees and are not part of the event. Do not toss trees. If you have any questions, talk to Dan John first. He...

    I see exactly the opposite. WKC has smooth handles. In fact, they introduced a sanded finish in 2012 to replace a textured handle in earlier years. That's the only caveat I'd give if you're...

    Your question implies either biathlon or long cycle; therefore, competition. Most biathlon competitors train up to 5-6/wk and LC athletes 3-4/wk, including a ton of GPP work and conditioning. But...

    My first-ever 10:00 set of 2x20kg long cycle clean & jerk. Scored 42 reps.

    Yeah, but I've seen Russian and European references calling them kettlebells, kettleballs, and handlebells. That's the problem with translation. I finally took a deep breath and got over (most of) it.
