Publisher's Summary

You are strong, or used to be.   

You take pride in your all-around physical development - but have precious little time for it. You are serving your country, raising a family, training for a sport....   

You have been around too long to be fooled by pop fitness "high intensity" fads.  

The Quick and the Dead is designed for an advanced minimalist like you. A culmination of five years of research and experimentation, it distills cutting-edge science to a straightforward protocol of only two basic exercises you mastered years ago: kettlebell swings and power pushups.  

Q&D delivers. A highly ranked pro boxer sums up its effects: “I had even greater speed and explosiveness, and I was able to maintain this for the whole match.... I had gas to sell.”  

A military special operator, on the wrong side of 40, reports: “a speed increase in all my powerlifts...pain relief in all of my injuries...an increase in my endurance while doing combatives...increased striking power....”  

Q&D can be a minimalist’s stand-alone total training regimen - or be plugged into any athlete’s regimen. It takes only 12-30 minutes, two to three times per week.   

Additional benefits may include: 

  • Increased testosterone 
  • Decreased cortisol 
  • Improved heart rate variability 
  • Reduced body fat 
  • Improved soft tissue quality  

All this without getting "smoked" - because you need energy to fight, work, play, live.

another great work

Another great work by Pavel. As one gets older, a minimalist view to fitness can only be viewed as wisdom. Over the years the kettlebell and Pavel has proven to be the best investment in my health and conditioning.
