If You Aren’t Kettlebelling, You Aren’t Training

Power by Pavel: “Greasing the Groove” for the Fighting Man

Whether you are a gun carrying professional or a martial artist, the following approach to “Greasing the Groove” (a strength building technique from the Naked Warrior) will benefit you greatly.

Run. At intervals you have set for yourself—so many minutes or so many phone poles—stop and do a 1-3 pistols. At the next stop do a couple of one-arm pushups. Here and there do both pistols and pushups. No rest at all and just a couple of reps.

This type of effort—steady state endurance interrupted by occasional intense contractions—is much more specific to your needs than high reps of low intensity exercise.
