5.0 out of 5 stars Following his programs will give you results 27 Nov 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I initially avoided pavels work. I found his constant references to special forces and martial arts masters slightly contrived.
But when I bought enter the kettlebell cheap to see what the fuss was about I was suprised. He gives a clear goal (rop) and challenges you to follow his program until you can achieve it. I took his advice 4 years ago and am now at 43 stronger than I have ever been. Since then I've been a fan of his methods and I've read most of his work.

If you are not used to his methods this program will seem to be too simple. But his programming excells on achieving the most with the least (time / equipment)and this book seems to follow a trend of simplification that he began several years ago.

Pavel has said in the past that his system is constantly evolving meaning his most recent works take precedence, making this the perfect place to start.

The program is easy to follow and the book is of a very high quality. (altogether 'tighter' than some of his earlier books) There is a clear progression to follow and guidelines are inculded for when and how to increase weights.
The program as presented should give you all you need to become very strong and stay there for most of your life all for a commitment of a couple of hours a week.

4.0 out of 5 stars Simple but not New 4 Dec 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Pavel has been on the cutting edge of fitness for years now, every time I pick up a book or an article by him I feel like I have learnt something new. :) This is NOT one of those books, this is a program for a person who has very little time to exercise,who is recovering from an injury or who lives a stress full physical life.

The program is the simplest and shortest a program can possibly be. It wont make you very strong, it wont make you very fast, it wont make you very flexible but it will give you a solid base from which to learn all these things if you desire.

On the other hand if you have an incredibly busy and stress full life then this program will help you to keep in touch with your body and help you maintain and improve your fitness despite everything else in your life going to hell.

A use full book to have on your shelf if you are a collector, a useful program to have in the back of your mind when life gets overwhelming. But nothing new.

5.0 out of 5 stars does what it says on the tin 15 Dec 2013
By poppa T
Format:Kindle Edition
I've been doing Hard Style Kettlebell training for coming up to the three years now so this book is actually a hark back basically the same programme is was doing two years ago...that's not a bad thing! I lost 6 stone in nine months and changed my life with these two systems and since then I have just got stronger and fitter but sometimes my training has got muddied with other pointless ideas. This book has reminded me of how to get the most out of my Kettlebell and consequently my precious time, the additional information on stretches and breathing exercises has pushed my training on to a new level, I feel amazing. As usual one has to smile at Pavel's (what I presume to be) tongue in cheek Soviet posturing amd a couple of typos in the Kindle version but that's a trifling matter for a book than can give you the body you don't think possible. In conclusion this book is a must read for experienced kettlebell users and a comprehensive guide to anyone ready to change their life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Straight to the point 24 Mar 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is basically the program minimum from Enter the kettle bell, so if you have that book, I'm not sure you need this one too. However, if you don't this is a really great buy, with Pavel's usual humour.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very simple 13 Dec 2013
By stephen
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Not only is the program nice and simple, the book is nice and simple to read and understand. There is a lot of good honest information packed into a short book.

Which means that you can get started really quickly instead of having to wade through pages and pages of explanation for explanations sake!

All in all a very good training book just as the title suggests.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pavel does it again! 13 Dec 2013
By Pete
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Having read 'Enter the Kettlebell' many times and having spent three awesome days with the Iron Tamer getting my SFG cert, I wondered if this book would really offer anything new. It does, in bucketloads. If you want to become a strong, capable human being, this book is a must.
