Just too damn cool

Below is an exceptional StrongFirst video that presents the basics of KB lifting.


Yeah, there are big differences between Hardstyle vs Sport Style (GS), but both are effective and biomechanically safe when performed correctly.  The goals may be different for each but that doesnt mean that you cannot do both.  In my classes I will even have my athletes do the *gasp* American Swing (CrossFit Swing) if I feel they can perform correctly.  Different strokes you know?!

With that said, I do express to my athletes and patients WHY they are doing such and such movement.  IF you want to perform three hundred snatches?  Use the Girevoy Sport (GS) style snatch.  Do you want a full throttle power complex set?  StrongFirst (Hardstyle) may be the way to go.

Just my .02, the most important thing is to DO SOMETHING.  If it is progressive, safe, and enjoyable, GO FOR IT

Oh yeah, don’t be a zeolot and only kettle, embrace the barbell and bodyweight training as well!
