What made you decide to give it a go? Return of the Kettlebell f ocussing on double kettlebell work. It also features some new moves up from Enter the Kettlebell ETK 's excellent Program Minium and Rite of Passage programs described in this review that have become standard in Hard Style kettlebell practice. Where ETK is an introduction and introductory program to kettlebell work for any level athlete, RTK assumes that people coming to RTK have already practiced and succeeded with both ETK programs: it assumes folks are very comfortable with hardstyle kettlebell cleans, presses, snatches, squats and deadlifts. This new move is the Viking Push Press.
It's a "program for explosive muscle gain. It's clear from the protocols that they are designed to combine the best of what we know about hypertrophy and skill training to develop muscle mass assuming one is eating to support that effort based on reps, load, recovery and overspeed eccentrics. But underneath that focus on hypertrophy is a program that seems designed as well to support some power and endurance, too. How be all things to all people? Well, that would be the special sauce of how the training blocks are combined.
There are some new twists here, though, in blending blocks of kinds of programs.
On paper, and on DVD the program looks compelling. After a phase of working with it, believe me it feels compelling. My reason for doing the program is really an exploration: i've done Mahler's style of EDT with kettlebells i love EDT , largely playing it quite safe with lower weights on presses 5 reps of 10RM as prescribed in EDT , swings, renegade rows, floor presses - that sort of thing - usually alternating sides on the low stuff and occasionally doing double presses.
With RTK, the focus is on 5RM pressing weights for doubles work, getting the volume up, getting the time down, and combining some demanding combinations and some intriguing blocks. So the exploration is with this rather controlled push - to make double kb work as a skill practical. And practicable. If does feel different to focus on this more intense kind of doubles work.
And so far, i like the routines. This movement work has helped keep focus and movement precisions as consistent as possible, towards that perfect rep. In my experience this kind of attention can mean the difference between effortful, form challenged, and more effortless, efficient lifts. With EDT i said i love this, right? Upping reps each time.
The long cycle clean and jerk has become a core part of the RTK plan as well - intriguingly, it is approached quite differently than it seems to be in GS circles. Something like that. But don't worry, fearless Leader, I don't intend to implement anything from the video until passing the ROP, hopefully within this calendar year. Many exercises are covered that I expected - double cleans all the way through double snatches - and there also many new exercises I saw for the first time, such as front lateral snatches and Viking push presses.
Each exercise begins with "Kenneth please demonstrate! A myriad of tips are presented with each as well, to assist the learning process. There are also some interesting points about double kettlebell exercises with different size kettlebells that were interesting. The most interesting demonstration for me is the double clean and jerk. KJ's footwork is so speedy that it really helps to have Pavel explaining as KJ demonstrates.
Additionally, for the female comrades, there are demonstrations of the exercises with appropriate adaptations for the female body by a woman named Missy. Here was the unexpected part for me: You pop the DVD in your computer, and there is a pdf file with a thorough training plan and schedule.
A sort of book preview, in a sense. All this and more - all in Pavel's trademark style and with top notch video production to boot.
It is for serious comrades who will continue to trudge forward when the presses get heavy and the clean and jerks become grueling. This program is hard, but anything worth having takes work, and in this case a lot of work.
Do not take this lightly; you must be proficient in the exercises and tasks in the ETK workout. This is not the goal outlined in the RTK, it is much worse, but gives you a sense of the level of conditioning this program affords.
I also gained pounds over the 4 months; and being 5'7'' and a hard gainer, that is saying a lot. If you are ready for the next step in kettlebell training and endurance, mental as well as physical, download this book!
It wasn't as professionally presented as the Enter the Kettlebell dvd. The dialogue between Kenneth Jay and Pavel was too relaxed at times.
It looked like there were a few outtakes sloppily left in the final edit of the dvd. On the bright side, there are some really cool movements I was unaware of that the dvd thoroughly covers.
If that intimidates you, it should. Pavel makes it plainly clear: if you thought SINGLE kettlebell work was rough, this new batch will simply run you over. As they say: two is always better than one.
Having them aboard allows Pavel to further elaborate the details of each exercise, for both male and female athletes. Unlike Pavel's previous DVD's, where he commands full attention, RTK allows Pavel to go even further with his teachings since he discusses the details of each exercise with these two talented RKC's, for the benefit of the viewer.
Nice, nice touch.
