Pues este es un libro muy muy orientado a entrenadores, pero que incluye programas e ideas sobre los movimientos fundamentales con la kettlebell que serán útiles para el que quiere aprender o para el que ya sabe pero tiene poco tiempo para programas elaborados.

El problema principal es el típico de los libros de este autor: se nota mucho que son posts de blog y eso lo hace un tanto inconexo. No hay apenas trabajo de editor y se nota. Pero los programas e ideas que trae son, como acostumbra, útil

I think I am not ready for this advanced coaching knowledge. I found the contents of this book to be semi-usable for my personal training. My take away is to 1) focus on fundamentals and 2) use some form of programming, starting off with one of the many suggested by Dan.
That is not to say this book is not helpful, it just needs to be read by someone with a little coaching expertise I guess. For me, a casual home-gym weekend warrior many things went over my head. Perhaps if I re-read it in a coup

Follow the advice

Want a reasonable method of working out and keeping real, then read this book. Just remember to keep take it slow. I love the advice of taking longer to reach goals because the results then last longer. If you are over 59 as I am, Avoid Injuries. Don't overdo it because it takes too long to heal. Read La Fleur's book on the proper way to hinge then read this one. Then get to work.

I think I've read eighty to ninety percent of this already, possibly online, or in other books? So if you've read a lot of Dan John, this may be material you're already familiar with. Not a book for beginners, or someone looking for a clear prescription to get started. Still, it is chock full of wisdom and useful stuff, you just need the tools to take that stuff and make it into something you can use today. ...more

Dan John is the man!

I believe this is a solid introduction to kettlebell training and a coaching to those who have used them. There is quite a bit of train-the-trainer information which is handled in a manner that will surely help trainers and give inspiration to those of us interested in improving our personal performance.

Straight forward and focused

I've read through a few of Dan's books in the last couple years and live how they always get me to reign in an over zealous gym ego. This one was again an enjoyable read and will have me continuing with the kind of training that has been proven to result in progression.

I read this book shortly after it came out and the part I enjoyed most about it was Dan's warm sensible writing style. If your new to the swing this book is great. If you are getting back in the game its also super fantastic. ...more

Full of great content and teaching methods, really a book to study and re-read. Definitely recommend this to everyone aspiring to teach kettlebell training, including folks who have already done an HKC or RKC certification.

simple book with less instruction on how to do the lifts than I would have liked. but Dan John always has good insights and puts things in perspective. worth reading, but probably not worth 10 dollars.

I liked this book a lot. Very usefull, especially for the more experienced. Please note that, as a newbie, one has to read the "other" books: Power to the People, Easy Stength, Simple & Sinister, Quick and the dead .. in this contiunuum, Dan John's work makes a lot of good sense ... . ...more

Not new, but good.

I always enjoy reading Dan John even though he seems to keep wrapping the same package in new paper. I guess that means it's good stuff if one does it.
