Total Training for the Advanced Minimalist
von Pavel Tsatsouline und StrongFirst
You are strong, or used to be.
You take pride in your all-around physical development – but have precious little time for it. You are serving your country, raising a family, training for a sport….
You have been around too long to be fooled by pop fitness „high intensity“ fads.
The Quick and the Dead is designed for an advanced minimalist like you. A culmination of five years of research and experimentation, it distills cutting-edge science to a straightforward protocol of only two basic exercises you mastered years ago: kettlebell swings and power pushups.
Q&D delivers. A highly ranked pro boxer sums up its effects: „I had even greater speed and explosiveness, and I was able to maintain this for the whole match…. I had gas to sell.“
A military special operator, on the wrong side of 40, reports: „a speed increase in all my powerlifts…pain relief in all of my injuries…an increase in my endurance while doing combatives…increased striking power….“
Q&D can be a minimalist’s stand-alone total training regimen – or be plugged into any athlete’s regimen. It takes only 12-30 minutes, two to three times per week.
Additional benefits may include:
Improved heart rate variability
Reduced body fat
Improved soft tissue quality
All this without getting „smoked“ – because you need energy to fight, work, play, live.
