A few decades ago it was hard to find strong, ass kicking women. While I believe that they always existed, it wasn’t nearly the landscape that we have today. Back then some larger women and some crazy-athletic women could/did humble men, usually privately. In the past twenty years there has been a proliferation of ass-kicking women. More women began taking fitness classes which led to more time lifting weights and then obstacle events, womens-MMA, more self-defense classes, increased nutrition and training techniques and a great acceptance of powerful women. If you ask women nowadays to slap a scissor lock on you, there is a far greater chance that he scissor will be quite forceful. The women featured in this book are a part of this new, more powerful era for women. They are not just strong and tough, they are stronger and tougher than men. Take a look and their pictures and read about how the defeat, demoralize and devastate the men in their lives and any man who challenges them. While there women don’t have superpowers and can’t defeat every dude, they can put most men firmly and painfully in their place. These women use their muscles, their technique, their competitive nature and a primal need to prove their superiority over the fellas. If you like strong, capable women who can KO men with choke-holds, scissors and strikes, then this is for you! Please take a look at my other books on Kindle and learn more about the world of ass-kicking women and the men who are humiliated, dominated and emasculated by them.<br />

The HKC—A Magical Method for Mastering Your Body<br />Want the world’s most effective program for becoming leaner, faster, more powerful, more explosive and stronger—in less time? And want that program to keep you performing at your strongest and best for years to come? Then, The Hardstyle Kettlebell Challenge is for you.<br />The magic of the HKC program is that you only need three main exercises to deliver these results. Using Dragon Door’s gold-standard HKC kettlebell certification program as his basis, Dan John lays out a field-tested set of protocols for athletic excellence and high-level physical performance, whatever your current condition. <br /><br />“Dan John is one of the premier strength coaches on the planet. I was thrilled to see him focus a book on the fundamental aspects of kettlebell training, the HKC. The kettlebell swing, goblet squat, and Turkish get-up represent movements that have been a foundation of my own strength programming for both my patients in the clinic, and fitness clients in the gym. I have seen profound changes in health and performance using Hardstyle kettlebell methods, from the fire fighter recovering from a low back injury, to training partners at my Brazilian Jiu Jitsu academy.<br /> <br />Dan breaks down the core Hardstyle kettlebell movements like no one else.  I thought I had a firm grasp of the technique, programming, and application of the swing, get-up, and goblet squat until I read this amazing book. He truly goes a mile deep on the subject with no fluff, and filled in the missing pieces for me that I didn’t even know I had. This is an absolute must read for any coach or trainer looking to incorporate kettlebells into their clients’ training. The HKC is also a great starting point for the average person wanting to start strength training but who is lost in the internet sea of (mis)information overload.<br /> <br />I give Dan John’s The Hardstyle Kettlebell Challenge my highest recommendation, absolutely essential reading for the coach or trainee.”—<br />Chris Hardy, D.O. MPH CSCS, Physician and Strength Coach, author of Strong Medicine<br /><br />“Dan John has put into words so succinct and with laser precision, the absolute value and meaning of Hardstyle kettlebell training. The fact that this comes from such a renowned strength coach gives it a weight that is impossible to ignore.<br /><br />This book should be in every kettlebell lifter’s library. Even if you have been using or teaching kettlebells for years, there is something in there for you.”—Andrea Du Cane, Master RKC, author The Ageless Body<br /><br />"If you’re serious about strength training, you study Dan John. If you’re serious about kettlebells, you study Hardstyle. The Hardstyle Kettlebell Challenge gives you both. What more could you want?"—Pat Flynn, author of Paleo Workouts For Dummies<br /><br />"Coaches with Dan John's breadth of experience and knowledge are few and far between. Even rarer is one who can articulate their ideas so clearly, and in such an entertaining manner.  Dan has an uncanny ability to draw parallels between seemingly unrelated topics and put difficult concepts into words we can all understand.<br /><br />Mr. John's incredible combination of world-class teaching skills and phenomenal writing talent make The Hardstyle Kettlebell Challenge an essential read for any fitness trainer or serious student of strength.<br /><br />My primary training modality isn't even kettlebells—it's calisthenics—but this book still gave me ideas and insights I could immediately put to use."—Al Kavadlo, PCC Lead Instructor, co-author of Get Strong<br />Dan John has the gift of taking extremely complex concepts and making them simple. So much of this book left me nodding my head. The information contained within these pages is indispensable, yet easily approachable. Truly, the author’s humor, wisdom and personal anecdotes make The Hardstyle Kettlebell Challenge a fantastic read!”—Danny Kavadlo, author of Strength Rules, co-author of Get Strong<br /><br /><br /><br />
