I bought the Kindle version of S&S on Wednesday. I really like the emphasis on power and strength. I don't know if this is a refinement or evolution of the original ETK, or if I am just now starting to understand Pavel. But, gradually, I think I am starting to understand Pavel and Strong First. I think anybody, from youngster to geezer, would profit from S&S.
Hi, not to confuse everyone further, but the hyperlinks work well on both my IPad and Mac Kindle apps. Given that the hyperlinks were added after release, you might try to delete the book and re-download it from the cloud. That should pull the latest version if it has been changed or your app could need updating.
Hello Mark, I downloaded the Kindle version from Amazon UK a few days ago. The hyperlinks work fine on my PC (being something of a middle-aged, minimalist Luddite, I don't own any other paraphernalia for reading the book).
I love the book. It's been a timely reminder of why I've embraced the kettlebell and divorced myself from the 'fitness suite'. I'd say that it's a user manual covering Hardstyle fundamentals for 'responsible adults'. Having said that, I imagine that the user has to be on the OCD end of the spectrum rather than on the ADD
On immediate reading, Pavel's joke about the ditch digging soldiers enabled something to 'click' with my swing technique. For me, it was a brilliant coaching cue and reinforced a hard lesson an SFG instructor introduced me to a few weeks ago. Every detail counts in the book, it needs to be read and absorbed.
By the way, I think that Laree Draper should be thanked for the excellent editing.
Great content in this book, I really like the direction this company is headed in! It came out at a perfect time for me because I was just starting to stall with the PM! My question is, if it takes longer than specified to complete the specified number of get ups without rest between reps, can I progress, or should I keep my get ups under the specified time?
When I read it I took it as do 5 get ups per arm with the bell you are using. When you are ready to progress to the next bell it would be when you can do 10x10 swings in 5 minutes and 5 getups per arm in 10 minutes or less.
