Kettlebell Should I attend Strong Endurance (online)?

I'm debating whether or not to attend Strong Endurance coming up in Florida. I would love to attend in person, but work/family likely will not allow it. Even if I attend online at home, I almost assuredly won't be able to remain captive to the screen for the duration. If you've attended Strong Endurance, would it be worth it to sign up mostly for the manual? I am well versed in Q&D and the clean and jerk program from Kettlebells Strongfirst. Is there a lot more in the manual that would be helpful and worth the considerable expense?

Thanks for your help,

John

It depends. If you are in the field, I found the manual very well done and helpful. If you are not, it is likely excessive for you.
FWIW I took it online and didn't have trouble staying engaged.

I happen to have young kids and they were a year younger when I attended online. Given the cost and how jealous I was to know the secrets, the missus went to great lengths to help me to be able to focus on the presentation. I'm grateful for that. It was still informative and valuable for me. But, I'm often too curious for my own good.

The manual is most valuable to a coach who may come up against anything. There is a range of tools to meet many challenges for all sorts of trainees.

After some sampling of the different templates, and getting a mild sense of what's out there for me to try in the spectrum of strong endurance programming, I kept being surprised at how well Q&D worked for me. There will be special purpose reasons for me to go into a couple other templates periodically; maybe annually or so, for a special hypertrophy block or a special focus on endurance.

After going over the manual I didn't figure out a better way. I found that for a layperson, for myself, with a day job, Q&D is best. In a way Q&D is arguably the crown jewel of the strong endurance manual.

Hey Green Machine / John
As a StrongFirst Certified Team Leader in Mexico I can say that the online modalities of our special events are very well received because we focus on the quality of the information that you can get, I should know since I've taken a few via online, just be sure you have good internet connection, some place to take notes. You won't regret.

It depends. I did it. I had the means to do it AND I love theory about training. Im not a personal trainer I just love theory and understanding the science behind strong first programming.

IT is very expensive. You Will get in excellent shape just by buying s&s and following it to the letter.

It may be against the terms of service related to the course, but if it's not, you can always do a screen capture and/or audio capture of the whole event and view/listen to it later.

Even if that's not allowed, the event organizers should probably know that any time you send digital information to a computer, it can be preserved for later. There is no such thing as "view only once" in the digital world.

I'm not advocating recording and sharing with others, which is definitively shadier, but if allowed you can record for later. Maybe you could get permission from the event organizers to do so, say with a limited window on the time you can keep this on your hard drive.
