A Few Thoughts

A few thoughts now and again about whatever occurs to me while going through whatever books I end up reading

Return of the Kettlebell

Return of the Kettlebell - Pavel Tsatsouline This happens to me sometimes with Pavel's work: it starts out feeling like he's piled on a few shiny items to his other work and called it new, then as I get further on, I begin to see the unique ideas that only he brings to the table.

Halfway through this one, I was ready to call it two-three stars and feel generous. By the end, I just couldn't justify that low of score.

I certainly wouldn't recommend this one as a first run at his kettlebell work, but it's a good one for a more experienced girevik who's looking for a new challenge, especially if hypertrophy is an appealing goal in your kettlebell work.
