You and Dan John share most of the same philosophies and principles and he has entire workouts based on kettlebells. I’ve heard you mention them in a few posts, but I was wondering if you believe they are an appropriate assistance to 531?
My 16 year old brother hasn’t really lifted more than his bodyweight in any lift, but is pushing 6’2" and weighs 205 pounds. He’s a pretty big boy and has lost a strong level of fitness (probably never had it) but it’s effecting his performance on the field. Would a 2-3 week break in period with KB’s be a good prep for 531? He’s a pitcher, so would KB’s be effective for that type of athlete.
Are KB’s a good option for hardgainers? I think if used correctly and balanced with the other training, KB’s could be effective for anyone. How you recommend their use in a 531 template for assistance, more specifically how a hardgainer could use them effectively.
Really just picking your brain here.
