    I'll admit, I love Pavel's older stuff. His soviet act was great and his early routines are simple and effective. Good advice for natties and normal people.

            I find they sound the same as well. A very direct way of explaining things in a very simplified manner. Its good, I'm not complaining, but it does exist.

              That's just being straightforward, an art that's lost because everyone has to chatter forever to monetize their videos. Compare Kat's Kettlebell Dojo versus Lebe Stark versus Joe Daniels.

                I agree. Dan John has a great comment about how the thing he likes the most about Pavel is his ability to tell people what to do directly and with minimum explanation.

        What do kettlebells do that clubs don't?

    • 3 weeks ago

      Do both, they're complementary

      Why not do both

      This guy gets it

      What do kettlebells do that clubs don't?

      Kbs allow more weight for pitch, but clubbells allow better lever arm for roll and yaw. This makes it easier to train throwing and striking patterns. Picrel is functional equivalent of a kettlebell halo to goblet squat but you can get more ROM on the muscles and joints that rotate your torso.
      Fun fact, we are the best throwers among primates because we can rotate our torso independent of our hips and because our wrists can lock as we throw. So even though a gibbon has a better AC joint and even though a gorilla is stronger by far, we throw with more force and accuracy.

        kettlebells never worked for my forearms. even when i manually rest the bell on my forearm without the clean, it still hurts a few days after. honestly a motivation killer

        in comparison, clubs were much more comfortable. you do have to watch out for overstressing your wrist and elbows, but that's also kind of the point of working out in general.

          Are you corkscrewing your hand on cleans and snatches? Beveled bells also help.
          But again, the only area where kettlebells unequivocally shine is adding load to pitch movements. You can get by on swipes and shield casts, if you must.

            idk lol, after moving to clubs and maces i never looked back. i do lots of shield casts and the occasional swipe session so i think im alright there.

          Yes but be careful. That club is a little over a 4 feet/1.2 meters tall and is a little under the standard weight of a barbell (45lb/20.4kg). The barbell is both heavier and longer so the lever arm will be harder. Choke up on the grip until you're totally comfortable and do it outside.

            This is what I expected. Perfect. Holding a barbell upright requires focus and not something I will be doing to failure.

              For anyone who is new to clubs or maces but who has kettlebell experience, the same rules of grip apply but rotated 90°. Over gripping gives you golfer's elbow; let the centrifugal force keep it in your hand. Grip it only as much as you need.

    I ordered a kettlebell bros is Pavel where I should look to? I'm 300lb fat frick lifter with decent lifts. I just don't want to be a fat frick anymore and I don't care for the gym prices in my area. I simply want to be able to run a mile under 10 minutes for once and be able to be a weight that can at some point do pull ups

      You can do side to side swings, windmill presses and halos to cover the ground that's sort of missing without clubs.

    have a 50 lb and 32 kg bell (pairs)

    should I just grind up the 50's for a while and that will get me to the 32kg for press? Or should i drop a few more dollarinos for 28 kg's

    I can press the double 32's but there's too much body language to call it anything other than a max effort/push press and that's not sustainable.

    • 3 weeks ago

      Yah I reckon so. If you can hit 10-12 with the 50s you should hit a solid single with the 32kgs. Then you keep training singles. Single turn to doubles. Doubles to triples. Triples to fourlets?

      If you have the dollarinos, drop them, but the bro science I've seen is that if you can do 25 reps with 24kg (53/lb), you can do five reps with 32kg.

      If you are serious about hitting the 32s for reps then definitely invest in some 28s. The jump from 24 to 32 is big enough that you will probably have some significant changes in form unless you are comfortably repping 10+ on the 24s.

      Have a search for Geoff Neupert "The Giant" kettlebell programs. I unironically did double kb clean and press 3x a week for 2years straight due to limited equipment and because I find it enjoyable. Went from 24kgx5 to 32kgx8. Can comfortably do 20+ reps with the 24s now too so that lines up with what the other anon said.

      I should mention I got some really nasty elbow tendonitis that took quite some time to heal but looking back its because my wrists and forearms were way too weak for all the volume. Direct grip/forearm training cleared it up in a few months

        Did you get gains from it?

        • 2 weeks ago

          Strength gains as described which I was very happy with. Obvious muscle gains in the shoulders due to high volume pressing 3x a week with increased range of motion from kettlebells. There are better things to do if your primary interest is muscle building but it's nice to know you can get a lot out of a very minimal routine

      I'm transitioning from 24kg to 32kg by doing high rep z-presses with the 24 and frequent singles with the 32, will probably add push-presses too.
      I'm sure a 28 would make this easier, but I'm having fun and don't want to spend the money

          >heavy ass kettlebell hack squats
          Because my home gym is kettlebells + clubs + strongman sandbag, all my squats are front loaded: double rack, goblet, barbarian, zercher/bearhug. Any advantages to the hack over a front loaded one? I have pairs up to 36 and a single 48.

              I have not done them, I'm not the guy you're arguing with. I am asking, is there value in me switching from a front loaded to a rear loaded squat? What do you see as the primary benefit of, say, 48kg hack squat versus 48kg double front rack squat?
