    I think "active rest" is poorly understood by most people. Anything that makes you sore is not active rest.

    Mark, you know - I wonder why you couldn't give an intelligent reply to the question that started this thread. Something like this:

    Kettlebells are an excellent adjunct to barbell training, but they are not a replacement for it. Kettlebell training - as I understand it, and I may be understanding it incorrectly - is an endurance activity wherein volume is the primary parameter being manipulated. It does not lend itself to lower rep incremental increases in strength at the 5RM level that barbell training does. For this reason, it would be considered an assistance method for intermediate or advanced athletes interested in competing in non-barbell sports. Quite useful for some things, not terribly applicable to an initial acquisition of absolute strength.

    That's the answer you gave in Ol' Mean Mr Gravity to the similar question. See? I do read your books and , actually, I quite like them. Believe it or not, I also like the opinionated and narrow minded manner in which the ideas are laid out. When I asked the question about supplemental strength training for GS I was sincerely interested in what you had to say. My mistake, I should have read Mr Gravity in order to understand the culture of your forum. I know, it's very seductive to have a following like yours, as well as it is seductive for your posters to get your approval while writing derogatory and/or ignorant replies.

    If it's of any interest, I think Mr Gravity is your worst book. You could do much better job by writing a systematic text that addresses the same topics - injuries, technique etc. (and skipping repetitive bitching about doctors, scientists and PT coaches) - by writing a systematic text, instead of copy-and-paste from the forum. Good luck with the next one.

    Quickly, if you want to stay, tell me where I said that Dan John was wrong.

    You seem to think I'm on your payroll. Anything else on your schedule for me to do? Again? And explain why you and RugbySmartarse have the same IP address.

    Probably something to do with Australia Rip. I've had similar issues before. Possibly something to do with the way Telstra has their network set up, or the way the network I'm on is set up or something something computer magic.

    I was the one who brought up Dan John and obviously I shouldn't have, because dolts will now assume I was referencing some hidden remark from Rippetoe regarding Dan John's swing challenge and I WAS NOT. I was speaking for myself only with regard to one narrow aspect of a coach's repertoire.

    RugbySmartarse seems like an OK dude to me, and I doubt he'd write a post like that or play sockpuppet.

    My impression too. But I'd still like an explanation.
