Kettle bells are a great tool to build back strength and muscle. Given that their center of gravity is constantly changing, kettle bells replicate the forces that you might find in real-life activities, improving not only your performance but also your daily life.

Protection against chronic back pain Protection against back injury Maintain optimal posture Increased overall strength Better performance in lower and upper body lifts Prevention against strains and sprains that can occur during sports and daily chores Positive body image Creating a balance between both pushing and pulling exercises is important to avoid any postural or overly dominate movement patterns.

Make sure your kettle bell training includes both pulling and pushing workouts to reap all the benefits of a strong back. The kettle bell dead lift movement pattern mirrors all daily life exercises where you have to pick something up from the floor.

No matter what your goals are, the dead lift should be one of your main exercises to strengthen your back. A singe arm kettle bell dead lift works your posterior chain, including your glutes, hamstrings and lower, mid and upper back muscles.

As a dynamic movement, the kettle bell swing works both your strength and cardio, and will help you develop great explosive power. Kettle bells are a great tool to build back strength and muscle.

Hey guys I stumbled upon this 4-week plan from kettle bell kings. It has some isolation exercises in it like Pavel's get huge with KBS pages from ROC.

While following SAS I wonder you guys thought of following some of these exercises as kind of variety day of sorts on say one day of the week to kind of fill in the blank of SAS. Lots of us add in extra floor press or two, but curious on your thoughts.

We have all enjoyed the benefits of SAS but for those who want to stay on it and not go to more hypertrophy routine like Km, could this work? Oscar you didn't share any link... This is a compelling question.

I've been working at the SAS basic requirements for about a month now, and have noticed some nice changes in my body's aesthetic. I checked out the kettle bells for aesthetics training program and it seems great.

I can't get past the simplicity of SAS though, and in some respects it might've ruined other workout plans for me forever. Started chasing simple again,kind of put my training on the back burner due to demanding work life for a couple of months.

All in all SAS can't be beat for me as far as feeling good and strong. I have been doing SAS for about a year and I haven't noticed significant improvements in my appearance.

I have considered this same question also, and I have the idea that push-ups or dips would be a nice addition to SAS for aesthetics purposes. I might be reaching Simple by next December, which is summer in Argentina, so I might be a good opportunity to test it.

@kb02 I believe Pavel has said “Until you can strictly press half your body weight with one arm, Rite of Passage *is* your hypertrophy program.” I’m about halfway through my first go at Top and can see and feel more meat on my upper arms, shoulders, and upper back. Sean M you're absolutely right,I've met that following markers press protocol 2 years ago.

I think some of you are missing the point of discussion, we are not talking about top, kbm, rotk, Prometheus,armor building, etc. This is something I might consider for myself in the future, for aesthetics : Once a week : SAS swings + Bench Press, hypertrophying program Following day : rest (or light SAS swings only).

I think it follows this guideline for changing programs, and doesn't deviate from the essence of SAS. @kb02 I have two friends on a SAS variation and because they are meatheads they are allowed to do a bit for their “show muscles” (chest+bicep).

Chest is DB bench press and bicep is EZ bar curls. Keep in mind that they are training bodybuilder routine style for 5+ years.

I think it follows this guideline for changing programs, and doesn't deviate from the essence of SAS. A single day of proper bodybuilding gives pretty good returns for the time spent.

But I would make little modifications. Once a week would be Back Squats and Bench Press. If squats are a no-go, then dead lifts like the PTT Bear are a distant second.

After that, until the worst recovery demands are met, light SAS. The way I read SAS is that it is a program that adapts to your training and life and not the other way round.

I really like the idea of doing it as it is but with a lighter weight on the days you don't feel it. Preferably close grip for extra bicep love.

In time weight it and you will feel your chest. Also floor press that bell, don't use 2 hands to get it up before TGU. Sand ow is mentioned in Etc as the guy with the classic torso.

The thing is. He got his “size” from lightweight exercises for a ton of reps. Daily. It would be a significant change to SAS, but I it could bring good results.
