The definition of a press is to move a weight away from the body by exerting continuous physical force, often overhead and in the vertical plane.. If you’re pulling, lifting and pressing, you’ve pretty much got everything covered when it comes to resistance training. This book will teach you how to press.

Don Giafardino“Taco Fleur and Joe Daniels have hit the nail on the head with their book Master The Kettlebell Press. This is the ONLY guide you’ll ever need if you are into Kettlebell Training or CrossFit. The performance tips alone, whether applied to competition or fitness, are worth 10 times the cost of this book, proving itself valuable to professional trainers and the athlete alike.

    Wonderfull, comprehensive guide for people who have never excercised, or for professionals. Highlights for me are the sports and movement definitions, the mind muscle section, what muscles the press is working, and stretches.

    This book is more like an essential manual for anyone who is interested in kettlebells. It is absolutely packed with loads of useful information. The amount of detail is so helpful,even down to explaining how different grips effect the way the bell behaves.

    Sometimes people might be tempted to think that a press is just a press. At least I thought so. Sure, there might be some variations regarding the stance, wether the weight gets jerked or not, and of course there are old “exotic” movements such as the bent press – but in the end —or so I thought— its just matters that the weight is pressed upwards. Well, Taco Fleur and Joe Daniels disprove such a simplistic view of things with regard to the kettlebell press.

    In “Master The Kettlebell Press” the Authors provide a thorough discussion about the Kettlebell press: the muscles involved are discussed, details such as the correct grip or the drop are explained and many different movements are presented.

    The book concludes with several example workouts, discusses the creation of workouts itself, as well as the setting of goals and objectives. The book by Taco Fleur and Joe Daniels is a motivating book in the best sense of its word. A lot of books in the fitness genre try to be that by choosing a “get up from your couch”-attitude that tries to be motivating but oftentimes is almost insulting – at least for me. What motivates me are calm discussions about the physical details of a lift – and this book does that in a really inspiring way! I read the first part of the book on my way to and from work – and the first thing I did at home was getting my Kettlebell, correcting my grip and analysing my movement pattern.

    So, all in all a book I can highly recommend. Master the Kettlebell Press is a book which is not read once to stay in the shelf afterwards. The reader will pick up the book again and again to improve his press in the various stages or to spice up the workout with different press variations. Grab it and read it – again and again!

    I started reading Master the Kettlebell Press with skepticism: after all, I had read books before on kettlebell press, this was not my first rodeo. All of them were written in such a manner that intimidated me, making me fearfull that I will never be able to learn the proper form and programming of this exercise. Oh, how wrong I was! My experience with this book was rich and very challenging and I will rely on it more and more.
    The book is filled with top-notch instructions for every step of the way, from complete beginner to absolute mastery of the Kettlebell Press. Of course, the road is not short or easy, but Taco Fleur makes it simple to follow, taking into consideration all that can preoccupy someone willing to embark on such a journey. The good news is that anyone can benefit from this book. Even though you may already master the press and all its variations, you still get a few insights that will make you better in your training and coaching. It will reinforce what you know and will teach you what you did not know.
    Master the Kettlebell Press contains wonderful regressions, progressions and corrections, the type of information that will make your progress visible. Plus, you have at your disposal very good programming; this will diminish your torment regarding the best way to integrate the Kettlebell Press into your regimen. You can even take to decision to follow the programming every step of the way.
    The impeccable knowledge, the unconventional wisdom, the scope of the book and the clear writing make this material on absolute must-have on this topic.
