Lots of great quotes in there. Some old, some new.
A few differences from the top of my head that I notice:
- Hook grip for kettlebell swing. - Breathing change from staccato, sharp to kiai - Philosophy of PM to S&S - PM: Timed swings to a comfortable stop. S&S: Swing reps, start again when recovered - PM: 4 work days, 3 rest days. S&S: Easy strength approach, every day short workouts - Miss the funny Pavel pictures of the "Don't do it this way." - Grabbing even more Karate influence, no more comrade! Maybe they will start using Sempai, Sensei and Kohai. We will end up washing the gym floors and our senior's cargo pants. - The breakdown of the kettlebell swing is different.
Lots of others but those are ones that stick out for now. Good easy read.
I see it as a refinement. Also I think what Pavel has done here is brilliant. I think too many people that read ETK dismissed the PM and rushed to the ROP. Here there is no rushing. The plan calls for you to own that KB till you move to the next one. This one program could last a person years and they will get stronger. I know I can do Get Ups with the 32kg and it wasn't too hard but I have not tried a 40 or a 48kg!
It's not about how hard you can hit but how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward!!
