    Yeah, I'm maybe being a little hard on the guy, who probably tried to think of something really limber, and thought of a leopard, and thought it was a great image to convey what he was trying to say....

    Athleticism is the ability to perform athletic endeavors well. As much as that is sort of solipsistic, I don't think it can be reduced to other terms. Anything that doesn't contribute to athletic...

    I do my bar lifting in my garage gym, so sometimes barefoot, other times I wear lace-up Speedo water shoes, so-called. They have a very thin, uncushioned sole, and with my long second toes I can't...

    Coach Wade talks about putting on mass with bw calis in CC1, I believe.

    Hopping bethaks done while consciously using as much calf as possible should build calves. Add weight if necessary. Sprinting also is good for building calves.

    It is. When you "pack" the shoulders, you are tensing the muscles supporting the joints isometrically. This is a workout of sorts in itself, and as suggested by others, you get stronger at it by...

    Hard to say. I agree Sonnen usually looks softer in many pictures, but I have also seen pics of him looking pretty chiseled. I believe he is a Master of Sport in Sambo, and I'm certain he is a coach...

    I was turned off by Sonnen's marketing campaign, especially on the "dare to evolve" page. Doesn't have anything to do with clubbells, though. Here is an old man who seems to swing the things around...

    Training in cold is probably good, if one is warmed up properly, because it keeps the system cool and one loses less water and electrolytes, and perhaps some other benefits, physical and...

    Pullups, pushups, kb snatches, bridges if you aren't already doing them. Add weight or use CC variations to increase intensity of bodyweight movements if necessary. I'd recommend going very easy on...

    Most common injury like that is a bulging disc pinching a nerve, like what is called "sciatica," but it would need to be diagnosed by a professional. This forum is poorly equipped to diagnose. First...

    Sounds like it may be too much pulling and too much lower back work. I would think you would keep deads to just once a week, and maybe cut back some on bridging and squats. Or you could just go at it...

    The way I do swings, snatches, and cleans, is using a hip snap that involves contracting the abs explosively on the upswing, producing a thrusting motion that helps propel the bell on its way up....

    I'd never do that. First, it's unsafe. Second, it's ugly. And third, there is no need to. Manipulate volume, then move up in quarter-pood or half-pood increments.

    Maybe you can tell us why you...

    Darren has a good idea here. Work your weak points first. Especially before doing an exercise that works some of the same muscles. Swings use the lats, rear deltoid, medial traps, and rhomboids,...

    Kettlebell Swingers?

    Only one person is swinging a kettlebell right now? My bet is that there are plenty of kettlebell swingers swinging away as I type! I might be one in a little bit here.
