Needs an accompanying PDF to help visualize the exercises so you don't have to ALSO buy the paperboack
Pavel reached a level were he touches the delicate line between science and art. To this line I personaly calls Philosophy. Highly recommended.
Regarding his reading, although it has great value the russian accent makes the understanding sometume difficult.
This is the fourth book I have purchased . I would of only needed two. You will want the print version as well. The pics help.
The second book is by Tracy Reifkind "The Swing.
I'm going with simple.
This is a detailed manual of how to get stronger. Pavel is a world leader in his field - training the world's elite special forces to be kickass warriors. I am none of these things and don't ever aim to be, but I am about to become a father and I want to be stronger for my family.
Pavel has a direct yet approachable style. I think it really adds to the recording that he is the narrator.
As an 8 year practitioner of daily Mysore style Ashtanga yoga (not yoga for sissies and grand mothers) I was pleasantly surprised by both the concept of a 'practice' as opposed to a work out and the idea that you do it every day.
I also love the elegance of a practice with only 2 exercises. I listened to the whole book making detailed notes of the technical instructions - it's a lot to take in for someone who has never even held a kettle bell and last did weight training over 15 years ago.
A great read if you put it into practice - definitely not one for the armchair warriors.
I'm off to buy some kettle bells now.
Pavel's Simple and Sinister program is perfect for anyone. Whether you're trying to level up in your sport or look great naked the protocol will help you achieve these goals. The program will make you stronger while leaving you fresh to practice your sport.
I love a book read by the author. Listening to this feels like being coached by Pavel himself. I've been lifting weights for 15+ years and this program is making me both stronger and leaner. I never understood how awesome kettlebells are until I started this. they really are didn't and in many ways better. I highly recommend this book. Pavel has a great sense of humor and a casual writing style that I really like. He's effective, entertaining and funny.
The book is written in a way that provides an unending amount of information with no fluff, yet was entertaining enough to keep my interest. I will probably purchase a hard copy in order to keep its info on hand while training.
It wouldn't have been the same without Pavel reading! Anyone else telling me not to be a 'sissy' wouldn't have had the same effect.
