Format:Paperback
This is a great book for learning the techniques required for the various must do lifts. The number of main exercises in the book, you could just about count on a single hand but the attention to detail is excellent, the teaching points are clear and explicit with clear pictures demonstrating how to perform and how not to perform while also giving advice as to how to strengthen weak points in your technique. As a certified Kettlebell Instructor in the UK I use this book and its compatriot for women (From Russia with tough love) as a point of reference and recommend them also to my clients if they are really committed to improving their performance/fat burning potential or whatever their goal is. The writing style is also very easy to read with some good background into the benefits of kettlebell training and some ideas for program design. I have used kettlebells for over 2 years now and seen some great gains with my clients. While I had to do a certified instructor course to be able to do this, this book is my text book for that and would not be without it.

There is something raw, agressive and pimordial about kettlebells and this is a fantastic motivational book to bring that instinct out.

The style of the writting, although a bit boys own, is actually motivational. To quote, "simple, sinister brutal and ferosiously effective for ...never stay die conditioning...the closest thing you can get to fighting without throwing a punch." It is like poetry. It is also true.

Sure the excersises in the book are few, but the level of detail is superb and you simply do not need anymore.

I brought this book, not knowing anything about kettlebells with a 12 kg kettelbell 3 months ago as a 36 yo, 1.83m, 64kg long dist runner used to playing about with a 40kg loaded barbell. I soon found out that the 12kg was far to light so I got a 16kg (what Pavel recommends for the average man), which became too light after a fortnight of doing get ups and swings (the two staple excersises in the book) so I brought a 24, which was far too heavy for pressing with my weaker arm, so I brought a 20kg, and that is perfect for me. I am now 66kg, have LESS body fat and have MUCH greater explosive sprint stammina; especially running up steep hills. My whole body has that ripped look.

I will be swinging, pressing and cleaning kettlebells for life now with this trusty book to motivate me.

A great combination buy would be this book with a 16kg kettlebell. You will probably want to progress to a 20kg within say a month, but hold off getting the 20 until yout technique is sorted on the 16. Olympian's Gym do great cast iron Russian kettlebells.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent book, and very effective program. 2 April 2007
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book contains two very effective training programs, `The Program Minimum' and `The Rite of Passage'. You could summarise these programs in less than a page, it is the attention to detail where this book really shines, hence the 200 other pages.

If you are in anyway interested in lifting kettlebells this is the book.

Please note I did not buy my copy from Amazon so I can't comment on the price.

Ok, i have had this book and my kettlebell now for a couple of years. At first i avoided reviewing this item due to lack of content.
It is only when you re-visit this book that you understand its beautiful simplicity. It is not designed to be a comprehensive reference to kettlebell exercises, it is basically two programmes and no guess work.
Pavel provides you with all the info you need, safety, technique, motivation and even your end goal all in a handful of exercises. If and when you stick with this programme long enough to reach that goal, you will understand how good this book actually is.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pain is good! 7 Nov. 2010
By Jamie
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have been using Kettlebells for a good few years now and got this book as looking to complete RKC.

What an impressive book! It goes through all the basics in baby steps which not only improved my skills but more importantly made teaching them allot easer! It covers all your warm up drills and the main KB techniques such as Squat, Deadlift, Swing, S.A swing, Rack up position, Clean & press, Snatch and the best of the best Turkish getup! So even if you think your the "Man" with KB's get this and be shocked to all those little things that you missed out on!

Would recommend this book to an experienced KB user but also to the novice as each teaching steps are explained and well photographed!

Only thing its missing is a bit more explanation on training programs, maybe to include some of the other documents Pavel wrote on strength training with KB or Hypertrophy training with KB but for me thats scraping the barrel with whats wrong with this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kicks Ass! 30 May 2008
Format:Paperback
After an injury I began to work out again slowly and was able to military press 12kg Kbells when I began reading this and within a month had bumped myself up to 20kg. I gained a stone of muscle and feel fitter and stronger than I have ever done my entire life. To be working out at this pace so soon after a back injury astounded me. Stick to the regime and you'll be buffed up and ready to rumble in no time. Buy, borrow or steal this book now!

The detailed descriptions and "Dos and Don'ts" for the set of core kettlebell exercises are perfect. Yes there is a lot of YouTube and internet material about kettlebells out there, but a lot of it is dreadful (sometimes dangerous!) and picking the real gems is not easy. This book only has gems.

Unfortunately at least half the book could be removed as it is just waffle, whole page pictures of individual kettlebells, pointless U.S. Secret Service "rules" etc. The couple of hundred pages could easily be reduced to 100 and (even more importantly) the price could be dropped by at least half to make it value for money.

Or... replace the 100 pages of padding with detailed descriptions of more exercises for the same price: Windmill, Floor Press, Renegade Row, Figure 8, and so on...

Great book, shame about the horribly expensive padding.
