    Thumbs up Dan John reviews Viking Warrior Conditioning

    Review just posted by Dan:

    Finally, clarity

    I have been looking forward to this book for a long time. I admit it: I was clueless about what we were doing at the San Jose RKC when I did the workout. I kept thinking I was just missing something. So, I read the articles and asked questions, but couldn't get a handle on it.

    In other words, how can 16k tear me apart like this? Kenneth's book is like "Kalos Sthenos," it will change the way you approach one of our basic six movements forever. Ignore the notion that you "know" what the book is about (insert image of me waving hands around) because almost certainly you don't.

    If the kbell snatch is the "Tsar" of our movements, this approach to training it is beyond anything I have considered. The workouts will improve your snatch technique while also teaching your heart and lungs a thing or two about conditioning.

    I read the book cover to cover in one sitting. I am not good at math, but I understood the insights that Kenneth is driving at throughout the text. We continue to evolve as a kbell community in our understanding of techniques, but this is a book loaded with the method behind our madness. Great job here...

    Until a couple of years ago I lived in Denmark and had the fortune of many professional conversations with Kenneth Jay. I find him to be one the most knowledgeable persons in the strength and conditioning area, I have ever come across.

    And maybe more importantly, he walks the talk with superior integrity.

    Default Question about 15:15 MVO2 Protocol

    Hi Kenneth. I just got done reading your book. Excellent job! I am going to do the cMVO2 test tomorrow. I had a question regarding the 15:15 MVO2 protocol...in the book you say that the "15:15 MVO2 protocol is multiple sets of 15 seconds of snatching separated by 15 seconds of active rest". I assume that means 15 seconds right arm, 15 seconds left arm, then 15 seconds rest, am I correct? Thanks Ken. Great book! Have a Happy Easter!

    Default 15:15 MV02 Protocol

    Good morning everyone,
    I recently finished reading VWC and just completed the test. I have to say that the book and protocols has me very excited! What is equally exciting is that I am studying similar principles in my college courses... this book dovetails nicely with my course work.
    I had the same question in regard to the 15:15 MV02 Protocol. I plan on starting the 15:15 this weekend and was unsure on the work: rest ratesas far as switching arms was concerned. I appreciate Jlmari03's question on the matter.
    Thank you for all of the great insight and keep up the good work!

    It means 15 seconds right arm 15 seconds rest,then 15 seconds left arm, 15 seconds rest. Have fun. This really works!

    Default 15:15 mv02

    This may seem like a stupid question:

    When counting the 'Sets done' do you count: 15 secs Left arm, 15 secs Rest, 15 secs Right arm, 15 secs Rest as 1 Set or 2?

    Regards,

    Ashley

    Allow me to add my voice to the chorus of praise here. We bought the book perhaps a month or two ago and have only recently gotten around to adding it to our training. "We" means me, at age 54, and my wife at age 51. The difference, even after only a few workouts, is noticeable in everything I do - my endurance is simply better, and I was surprised to find it better at one-arm 32 kg swings even though starting VWC meant cutting back on my volume of one-arm 32 kg swings.

    We are figuring out how to adapt this to our age - it's likely not just our age but my asthma as well. So far, so we, we are just not pushing our numbers forward quite as hard as the book recommends, e.g., at this point, three times a week is simply too much, but after trying that last week, we're going to see how twice a week goes.

    A further report a few weeks or months down the road will be forthcoming.
