How much do I want to read more? 6/10

Weird physical training book. It looks superficial, and I cannot see where the method actually is.
I'm better of with other books for now.


Part I: Fast first

The Q&D protocol was designed to maximize your performance at a lowest biological cost.

Fast First

You can be anything you want. A warrior. An athlete. A hard man or woman ready to handle whatever life throws at you. But you must be strong first.
Once you are strong—even kind of strong—consider shifting your focus to power.
Power equals force multiplied by velocity. It demands a precise blend of strength and speed.
