An absolute classic from two of the most straight speaking people in the s and c industry. I am a coach and trainer and recently found myself bogged down in minutiae of training, the old paralysis by analysis conundrum. Reading anything by Dan John immediately sets me back on the right track and makes sure I'm not getting too sexy for my own good. Pavel on the other hand takes the pretty much impossible to understand (for me)Russian strength research and makes you grasp it within one sentence. Whatever your sport or fitness goal, you will benefit from reading this and on the kindle it is £6.

Dan John is a good practitioner, Pavel too… but the book is a poorly written one and hard to read; no flow, jumps everywhere. Mike Boyle, Eric Cressey are able to articulate more precisely, and academically, how to pursue strength and conditioning. The 40 Day prog in this book, however, I must say is good.

Pros:
+It contains a great deal of relevant information regarding strength training in general.

Cons:
-The majority of the programs and training concepts have been covered elsewhere (ie; Never Let Go, Power to the People) or are freely available on the internet (eg; free articles from the author's websites, free articles found on DragonDoor/T-Nation/etc). The only unique content is the quadrants system which is just a rough guide of an athlete's needs based on how advanced/specialised they are however it is relatively intuitive. For example, an elite level boxer needs to spend the majority of their time boxing ("Skills pay the bills") with only a couple of weekly strength sessions focusing on the big compound movements. On the other hand a novice can afford to strength train more frequently and with a greater variety of exercises.

-The book is fluffed out with countless photograph sized pictures of Dan and Pavel, random pictures of DragonDoor affiliated coaches and athletes, testimonials, lengthy quotes that should have been summarised and referenced, forewords and prefaces full of hyperbole and self promotion, etc. The majority of the topics covered are not difficult to understand and they do not need "expanding upon" further or the associated junk.

-Chaotic writing style. At the start of the book Dan explains how he and Pavel thought that it would be a good idea to write the book in a 'conversation type format'. The result is a book that has dual personalities. It struck me as a very lazy writing style and more time should have been spent summarising these excerpts to better include them in the main body of text.

-Poor formatting.

Stop trying to reinvent the wheel with the latest fitness centre idiocy. Pavel and Dan encourage you to get strong simply and then apply that strength to your sport or life. As a coach and trainer I see my fellow "professional" adding gimmicks and nuances to their clients training when they don't have the basic strength and skills they need. I say to my athletes, "it's not what I know that's important, it's what I can get you to do"
Buy this book and throw most ofnthe others away.

There is some great information in this book but it really does make you work hard for it. The first three chapters read quite well but then it becomes very chaotic and often contradicts itself completely. However, it's one of the few books which tackles the issue of how to train for strength whilst prioritizing your sport and the easy strength workout is quite inspired in its simplicity. Worth reading for the information but you won't enjoy it one bit!
