Outstanding training protocol

Obviously this book is for auditory learners at intermediate to elite training levels. However this training protocol is simple enough for the curious beginner who is willing to research proper form and technique elsewhere. There are no PDFs or videos on training techniques

Pdf needed

A pdf file with exercise demos and workout charts is needed to make this worthwhile

Content is useful but too long for what it wants to transmit

It's a good buy, the workout is solid.

Content is useful but takes too long to get to the point, it could be summarized in 15min.

The review is highly personal, I really don't care much about the motivational psychology and narrative the author fills the blanks with, however the spin he puts on the narrative performance with the accent and bravado is hilarious and entertaining.

Great book, great program!

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.

fundamental book to read for becoming an athlete

I think the author did a great job reading the book however the production quality was subpar he had a list and I feel like they couldn't fix that or edited that out
