Yes. Tree wrestling. Low set lift like a barrel lift, and push with arms out like the Wheel of Pain. Try different ranges of motion, different angles, different positions, but always workout daily and workout what you did the day before. 20 - 30 second sets is the hypertrophy range. Best is to use a mix of strikes, 6 second max efforts, 20 - 30 second ...

Strength is specific, so saying "I want to be as strong as possible" doesn't really mean anything. Sorry :) How do you define "strong"? Do you prioritize a better 1RM or a better 8RM (or 12RM, or AMRAP at a specific weight)? If you have to choose between adding 2% to your bench or 3% to your over-head press, which do you choose? Would you ...

1 repetition once a week using the heaviest weight you can manage on the deadlift. Just warm up to the weight you're going to use, then lift something very heavy once. To note: Nassim Nicholas Taleb did this as described in his book "Anti-Fragile". Since the deadlift is one of the heaviest whole-body exercises to perform, it results in overall ...

Given lack of information in your question, I'm going to make a couple of assumptions; a 40lbs kettlebell isn't a significant portion of your bodyweight, it's the initial roll to elbow that you're struggling with for the TGU and you can do a set of 10 single arm swings with it. For the Turkish Get Up, this is almost certainly a technique issue. A lot of ...

This is a great puzzle to solve, and I think it is solvable. The basic recipe I would follow is: do what you can until you can do a "reverse" Turkish get-up, starting from the top -- a "Turkish lie-down"? With that in hand, the get-up is not far behind. You'll want to prioritize a few specific areas: general strength overhead stability ...

Without knowing your weak points specifically since turkish get-up is a whole body exercise, here is a list of exercises you can do with a kettlebell that will target every part of your body(you can pick and choose). The bolded ones are the most important, especially for snatch but they will all help contribute: kettlebell swing glute bridges (use a ...

For instance, sitting down once a month on one fitness machine for 5 minutes won't likely yield a benefit ... I'm assuming! I would push on this assumption a little more. Consider the general case If you ask "what's the minimum for me" then your training history is extremely relevant. People's situations vary. They vary so incredibly much that if ...

You will stall as others are saying. You have to actually figure it out, like people had to figure out math and medicine back when it was new. Training to the top is pain, exhaustion, fear, panic, resistance, fighting; a war pretty much. If you aren't "going to war" then you will not progress anywhere near an 800 lb squat. A strong ego and ...

A case against one-arm handstand pushups I would definitely discourage even thinking about a one-arm handstand pushup as something that goes along with a one-arm pullup. It's not on the same level. Not even close. As a climber, the one-arm pullup is a staple. It's not the case that every climber can do it, but it's a common "feat of strength" that ...
