Pavel is the king of KB. Any one interested in starting KB this must be the first book. Although there are only 2 main exercises swing and get up. but they are more than sufficient for a beginner. KB weight progression is also explained. Every minute thing is clearly explained. Following the book for 1 month now and have improved my swing from 16kg to 24kg one hand also able to do 5 get ups each side with 16kg. I was earlier doing calisthenics. but stopped it completely once i started with KB.
I am kettle bell enthusiast.. I have a rod in my left hand.. Which forced me to think about functional exercises.. I was using Indian clubs.. Then I came across Kettlebell..thru Steve Cutter learnt some basics.. But real transformation came when thought of embracing KB in day today life.. Pavel with his no nonsense attitude n minimalist zen like approach made that possible.. I never wanted big chest n biceps.. Wanted to carry my kids to third floor.swings n getup always fascinated me...to convince me grinds after ballestics was tough..keeping it less n still challenging was real gem..never liked jogging or walking like a retired pensioner man.. Always believed there is place for being strong n able to chase a guy for 100-200 m.. Pavel somehow brings those things in this books.. Thanks for giving us that conviction.. KB is for real not a passing fad
