Many of you seem to want to know about the kettlebell vo2max protocol – and Viking Warrior Conditioning is absolutely THE book to get for this info. Not only does Kenneth Jay show the how and the why, he “shows his work” with all the relevant formulas, equations, charts and graphs to back it up. Jay also explains, with concrete evidence, why steady state cardio in the controversial “fat burning zone” is vastly inferior to true interval training. THEN has a biological explanation for the specific timing of rest periods. Everything is accounted for. This book is short but extremely dense – you will probably have to re-read portions of it several times to get the ideas firmly in your head. You may have to get out the calculator!
Overall, a fantastic read for anyone who has wondered what exactly happens in the body in response to training – but an ABSOLUTE MUST for RKC instructors, those who train athletes, or athletes in charge of their own training.
