Jason Ginsberg More than posts I don't think it really does fit into Dan's plan; if it did, I think Dan would have put it in there. Yes it was all the rage several years ago, that popularity didn't last, and I think there's various reasons for that, including that the originator of the program himself basically disavows it now. My personal take on it is this: I did it years ago. I finished the first level of with a 16kg bell at a cadence of 7 reps. Contrary to what I expected, I actually found it really enjoyable, and it was a relatively easy progression. I found that it was great for increasing VO2Max, but I found that increased VO2 didn't have nearly as much carryover to other sports and activities, or even other kettlebell work, like the snatch test, as I was hoping it would.
With all the online examples of how to do the exercise no challenge is going to excape one who is interested in trying any of the routines.
A good source of variety that one can try.
I have started with Reikind"s swing agenda. I know that the swing is the king and am enjoying the program.
Worth the price. What I did not particularly like was the layout and I found some of them difficult to see the actual program in the writing that some of them had done. Only beef with the book would be the layout could have been better.
The information is very good. Great reference. I've read all of Pavel's work, Dan John, Geoff Neupert's too and this really doesn't come close to any of their products.
The article from Brett Jones about preparing for the RKC is outdated now that it uses single bells and I honestly thought that they'd have updated it from the version that is freely available on the web. Disappointing to say the least. I was expecting so much more from this. It presents an interesting variety of programmes which are all highly usable.
It is motivating and inspiring to read ideas from the RKC experts, particularly sports-specific case examples.
The programmes presented are great to use either completely as they are, or to pick-and-mix, or just for great concepts to incorporate in general. For example, the specific weight suggestions and rep numbers were a real help and an eye-opener. You can test out each programme and the sessions come alive. The volume of this material is huge.
It is written very well with expert technical detail but always with the 'voice' of the trainer loud and clear - in all chapters distinctive, entertaining, inspiring. I enjoyed that one. Nice to hear from very mad people like this. Of the sessions I have tried so far all have been seriously hardcore.
A GOOD thing. The layout and format of the book works well - especially for an ebook. However, hopefully the publishers can look at the following constructive points below: Some of the programme descriptions could have been broken down or edited a little more carefully.
Although also, some were excellent in this regard. Where exercises photos were included, i thought a lot more sequential photos would help. In some cases the captions to the photos were confusing or even looked wrong. I found that it was great for increasing VO2Max, but I found that increased VO2 didn't have nearly as much carryover to other sports and activities, or even other kettlebell work, like the snatch test, as I was hoping it would.
It also requires a pretty high time commitment for what it is, and even with very good technique, can be rough on the hands this is especially concerning for me, because I make my living using my hands, and most of my hobbies involve hands, often with fine motor control. Later, I was taught that it can also be done with the viking push press, which I like better in some ways; other ways, not so much. I don't use it, haven't in a while, because VO2 max is a very specific quality, and not one that I really need at this point.
If my goals change, I might revisit it. One day I might take a summer to do it again for the sake of doing so, because as I said, it was actually a lot of fun. But right now I have things I'm trying to progress on, that it won't contribute to.
For people I teach, it's a tool in my toolbox, but not one I pull out very often, because a it requires a very good snatch technique being already in place KJ originally recommended NOT starting VWC until you'd already completed the SSST, or pretty close to it; in retrospect that might be good advice and b most people don't really need increased VO2 max, and for those who do, it's not the only way to get there, and not always the best way.
So, it's not a bad tool, but it's a very specific one with a very narrow application that's not unique.
Dan has laid out a progression towards a goal, and I think it's a side road off that progression. One that may be worth exploring for some, but not one that really advances you towards the stated goal, in my opinion.
I think Dan's piece is brilliant, especially if you read the first part carefully. The specific order and progression isn't, to me, as important as the concept of how we define and acquire mastery, and layout the path to it.
