Wild Bill, why should someone try yakutian pegtop?

Does it give an android work capacity?

Shoulders able to dish out punishment?

Iron back and iron will?

Because russianballs do.

if seriously, i'd rather compare pegtop with ab-wheel. They are both simple and sinister :)
and maybe they should be done together.
ab-wheel for front core, pegtop for back and lateral.

It has to be very minimal, because otherwise I think you (he....they....) would just spin that into another book.....

I'm guessing that in some way or other it adds waviness into the program. So instead of always doing 10 sets of 10 swings and 10 get ups, he has added variability. A dice roll perhaps to adjust volume?

The secrecy surrounding it is worthy of a secret government agency. Must be Pavel's Spetznaz training.

StrongFirst OPSEC can never rival that of Operation Gladio. They will never know the limitless power of the Werwulf Ausgeklugelter Protokol.

Comrade, it seems you were right!

From the Strongfist forum: "Major changes are progressions for swings (that include 2 armed as well as one armed) and progressions for TGU."

The Third edition is not too far away, Comrades:

Royal Simple & Sinister Test Program: Looking for Vict... Volunteers!
I am working on the original advanced program minimum revisited - kettlebell snatch and bent press - with a working name Royal Simple & Sinister (RSAS).

Quite a few students already went through the program (including myself of course), some of them still continue. I am so far happy with the latest version, but I would love to have more of my colleagues to test it and let me know their opinions, suggestions, and results.

@Steve Freides has Kindly offered to make a private forum section for those who would like to take a part in the test program.

So no one can figure out how to start swinging a heavier bell or doing a heavier getup

Bet it includes shit about rolling a dice too

Is there a shittier, more worthless exercise than the bent press?

There's a reason nobody but strongman recreationists do that kind of shit.

I haven't been an insider for a decade or so.

It is kind of funny, at one point the online fitness industry was small enough that I could keep tabs on every significant 'guru' type without a problem.

From a SF facebook post:
In the past six years, we have learned a lot. Researched and developed Strong Endurance. Designed and tested countless plans in the field. Received a lot of excellent feedback from our certified instructors and our online community and acted on it. The end result is Kettlebell Simple & Sinister: Revised & Updated Edition.

The training load stubbornly sticks to the original 10x10 high power swings and five strict get-up singles per arm. The difference is in the details.

Pavel explains how he improved S&S in the new edition:

* Maximized the program’s reliability with step loading, a classic strategy of old-time strongmen endorsed by top Soviet sport scientists;
* Outlined the exact progression intended to eliminate any questions or doubts;
* Offered two different types of weight jumps to readers with different psychological make-ups;
* Added a training tactic for the gireviks whose weak link in the swing is the grip—this tactic has deep roots in the history of the iron game and is backed by the science of biochemistry;
* Prioritized the strength and practice mindset even more by postponing training and testing against the clock until the reader has reached the “Timeless Simple” standard;
* Developed all new instructions for the timed tests and training to get the most benefit from occasional “smokers” with a minimal downside;
* Optimized the dose of glycolytic exercise based on the best practices of elite endurance athletes;
* Designed a set of performance “stop signs” to assure quality control when pushing against the clock;
* Introduced deloading tactics for advanced S&S practitioners whose progress has stalled;
* Added a special section, “Why People Fail on S&S,” by a colleague with years of experience doing and coaching S&S;
* Laid out the options from Simple to Sinister and beyond.

Translation:

Use a heavier bell for some sets sometimes.

Rest longer between sets sometimes.

Do longer sets sometimes.

Stop before you fail sometimes.

Push harder sometimes.

Go lighter sometimes.
