End of day #2, final work session for StrongFirst Girya candidates, Houston, Texas. Every move they’re being trained to teach has been broken down its into component parts–regressions, progressions, correctives. And they have drilled each move endlessly and expertly, under the watchful eye of their trainers, and of The Chief. But their work is not yet complete.

This last session of the day–another earn-your-supper workout–is surprising for its simplicity: a descending ladder of hardstyle kettlebell swings and goblet squats.
The experts know: complexity for its own sake, and the famous “random acts of variety” is a distraction from the core principles of hardstyle. Teach a body to move first–then to move well–then to move strong. Keeping it simple allows for mindful movement. Put a heavy enough weight on simplicity, and you’ve got yourself a workout.
Go strong, friends.
