Recently I was chatting with a student about the wedge for the kettlebell military press. He is working on his half bodyweight press for his StrongFirst Level 2 certification and is not 100% dialed into the wedging technique.

Once upon a time I went to Mark Fisher Fitness in New York City (which is like Disney meets Charlie and The Chocolate Factory but with a bunch of beautiful, sexy, fit, people) and sat down in the Snatchery with the MFF Personal Training staff to discuss pull-ups, pressing, unicorns, and how to make your snatch sexy. Sexy people must have sexy snatches.  This is a no brainer. Now, for those of… Read More
