I have mixed feelings about this book. Perhaps I had my expectations too high. This is a technique repository and little more, but it is valuable. I have the kindle edition.
-Great color photos, good size and helpful angles. Wish other exercise books were this topnotch in this department.
-easy to use layout. Again wish others were like this.
-step by step layout of each technique
-lots of exercises, a few which I have never seen, a few I will probably never try
- basic technique tips on each exercise, does have some nice cues and tips sprinkled throughout
-warmup and mobility drills are good and often lacking from other books
-Personally I found the book a bit sparse on technique. I was hoping to gain some insight into IKFF style kb lifting, but didn't really see anything to differentiate it from RKC or SFG styles as a fitness enthusiast. I'm not an instructor or affiliated with any group yet.
-many of the 190+ techniques are just the 1 vs 2 arm version of the same drill with the same pictures and cues, just now he is holding 2 bells. Hardly any tips on differences between the two. Seems like a lot of extra space without realling adding anything useful that couldn't have been handled with "Hey you can also do the same thing with two bells." But if you really want to see it you can so your preference.
- Pay close attention to the pictures. Sometimes things like handle position or bell position at the start are not mentioned. So study the pictures carefully. The core lift section does include more detail than some of the other sections.
- no programming
-no explanation of breathing, which is key to many lifts.
Conclusion. The quality is very high layout and photography wise. Bit sparse on technique details and no programming. So I wouldn't call it a complete guide, but if you already have a handle on programming, breathing then this is a good resource for exercises to experiment with. I have not had the chance to get any of his dvds yet, but expect more of the technique details to be found there so maybe he didn't bother to include as much in this book. That being said this is not the book I would recommend for a beginner starting with kettlebells wait a bit then get it if you feel the need.
