How to Get a Lot Stronger Than Your Competition
—And Dominate in Your Sport

Pavel and Dan John’s original Scientific Strength Secrets for Extreme Performance workshop was a 3-day RKC-only event that received immense acclaim from those lucky enough to attend. Pavel and Dan John revealed the many groundbreaking performance secrets now published as Easy Strength, in book and DVD formats.

There is, however, no substitute for the hands-on coaching and corrections gained by attending a live training with instructors of this caliber. So by popular demand, Dragon Door is offering an intensive update of Pavel and Dan’s original trailblazer: Easy Strength.

And the great news: the new Easy Strength workshop is open to all.

"I learned more at Pavel and Dan’s Easy Strength Workshop than I have in the last 10 years of attending other workshops, seminars and reading books."
—Joey Williams, Pacifica, CA, Former United States Marine Corps, Law Enforcement Weaponless Defense Instructor, Impact Weapons Defense Instructor, Police Academy Drill Instructor.

Just how good can you expect the new Easy Strength Workshop to be? Check out this praise from participants at the original event:

Jelani Hale, Pacific Grove, CA, US navy
Athletic Achievements, training background or specialty: RKC, US Navy

"The concept of easy strength would be ideal for general practitioners, police, fire rescue, and military. Work and life is hard enough, the training should be easy.

The quality of the knowledge was exceptional. Both men are clearly masters in their respective fields of expertise. The subject matter was clear, concise and well organized. I do not consider myself a "strength athlete", but the ideas of simplicity and finding the right tool for the job can apply to a broad range of activities." 

Geoff Neupert, Master RKC, Durham, NC

"The single most comprehensive seminar in strength, the acquisition of strength, and the practice of strength that I’ve ever been to." 

Bud Jeffries, Lakeland, FL, Performing Strongman, Author
Athletic Achievements, training background or specialty: RKC, Lifetime Drug Free World's Powerlifting Champion, Strongman champion, MMA/Grappling Fighter, Highland Games Champion, Strength Coach.

"There are only a few people in the world with this level and combination of scientific and real world knowledge and they rarely talk about it live. This was one of those times that you could pick up a lifetime of knowledge over a weekend. Priceless.

Quality and scope were excellent, but what will really separate this material is the practical use. It makes the training done by real professionals accessible and able to the average person." 

Yes, this will bring HUGE RESULTS for me and my clients. I want to register right now for the Easy Strength Workshop.

Iron Tamer Dave Whitley, Master RKC, Nashville TN

"This information was outstanding because it fills in gaps in my own knowledge. In my own professional practice I know that knowledge of programming is an area that needs improvement. I have much more to work with now. I am a better instructor and coach today than I was on Thursday."   

Peter Vieira, East Providence, Rhode Island, Firefighter
Athletic Achievements, training background or specialty: Black Belt on Kenpo Karate, Firefighter combat challenge state champion

"I learned more in the three days here than I learned in my life training! It made everything an order that I could follow. They put it down; all you have to do is follow it! Thanks Pavel and Dan, you made my life easier!

Pavel’s straightforward way of showing the techniques and delivering his message was gold.

Dan John- Made everything come together! The way he showed everyone the four quadrants works. It took the guessing game away and now I know if someone wants to lose weight or gain muscle, all I have to do is go for the four quadrants. Love it!

This was awesome! I didn’t want it to end on the second day! I wrote more notes in the three days than I ever did at any other workshop. This experience made my RKC and RKC II a better package to have. Now I have the missing link to better my clients and myself."

Andrew Bender, Chelmsford MA, personal trainer
Athletic Achievements, training background or specialty: NSCA-CP

"It’s a perfect complement to RKC certification – putting the missing pieces in place, to make the training picture complete. I have been to numerous NSCA, Westside, RKC workshops and seminars and have never been to anything this good. I feel privileged to have participated. These two distilled a vast quality of knowledge and communicated it with a great effectiveness. I feel like I have absorbed about two years of a college major in strength development in three days. I look forward to applying this to my training practice. This much information will require review."T

Justin "Trusty" Garfield, Waianae, HI, Strength & Conditioning Coach, Gym Owner
Athletic Achievements, training background or specialty: RKC, FMS, CrossFit L-1, Olympic Weightlifting Coach, BJJ Purple Belt, Muay Thai, MMA, Rugby, former US Marine

"This workshop is a must if you are serious about being a successful coach or trainer. If you want to have a clear concise understanding of what it takes to be a strength coach, and how to properly approach your clients, athletes or students needs, then you will take this course!

I thought that Pavel and Dan John did an excellent job at presenting, explaining and making us understand the science and methods to strength super stardom! This was by far the most in depth, informative course that I have ever attended! 

Justo Bernechea, Elmhurst NY, RKC, USA Boxing Coach
Athletic Achievements, training background or specialty: I've been in the boxing world for 16 years as a fighter and coach. 

"These guys were awesome! Every time you think you know something you really don’t. The insight and smallest details these men brought to the table will make me a better S&C!

It solidified that Hard Style is scientific." 

Yes, this will bring HUGE RESULTS for me and my clients. I want to register right now for the Easy Strength Workshop.

Steve Wolff, Stamford, CT, High School Teacher

"This was an extremely energizing experience that has rekindled my passion for training and coaching. The enthusiasm from the presenters and the RKC community is contagious.

The presenters had a seemingly endless supply of information and experience to share and a sense of great joy in sharing them.

This workshop is something anyone who works in the world of physical education, coaching or training should experience." 

Andrew Lyons, Columbus, OH, Physical Therapist
Athletic Achievements, training background or specialty: Licensed Physical Therapist, RKC 2, CK-FMS Brazialian Jiu Jitsu white belt

"It has linked together every aspect of training and every Dragon Door related training program in such a way as to make someone almost unstoppable when the scientific strength secrets are not over thought, but simply applied.

Pavel and Dan have taken exercise science and effectively applied it to real world scenarios. Every other training course I have had outside of the RKC system has revolved around a lot of text book knowledge with little-to-no real world application." 

Wade Padgett, Dallas, TX, Airline Employee

"What a fantastic opportunity to learn over 100 years of sports science experience in 3 days.

Hero worship aside, these guys are fantastic. The thing they have done in their lifetime can barely be scratched in a single weekend. Being able to tap into these brains and trying to absorb all the information that pours forth is like trying to empty the ocean with a bucket. If I remember only 30% of the weekend, I will still be ahead of most of the population.

Practical use – off the charts!"

Chris Lindquist, East Fallowfield, PA, Veterinarian

"This seminar has been incredibly eye opening for me. The knowledge I have gained will significantly alter the course of all of my future training. This was truly life changing.  

This seminar has been the greatest 3 days of my training career. It will significantly alter how I train myself and my students." 

K.C. Reiter, Chico, CA, Fitness Trainer
Athletic Achievements, training background or specialty: Successfully challenged the Beast, TSC winner, RKCII, 8 years KB experience, College Track and Field, Recon. Marine, Military contractor, ISSA Trainer, ISSA Specialist Performance Nutrition

"Outstanding! Excellent course that must be repeated, it would be a shame if we were to be the only group to have had the privilege.

These men obviously have much more to give. And even though I was able to learn some incredible information this week I am looking forward to what is next. In the meantime I will spend my time practicing the knowledge I take home. These are professional of the utmost quality.

This course has been by far the most comprehensive highest quality and useful course I have ever taken." 

Tim Anderson, Fuquay-Varina, NC, Fire Fighter
Athletic Achievements, training background or specialty: Professional fire fighter for 11 years. Personal Trainer for over 12 years. 

"The information presented at the workshop was simply invaluable for anyone in the training, or coaching, business. Basically, cut out the clutter, do what works for your particular athlete(s) and do nothing more. I think I finally understand the saying that Less is More.

Pavel – amazingly intelligent man. He is the E. F. Hutton of the training world. If he is talking, you should be listening. Or else! The information Pavel provided was priceless.

Dan John – I think Dan John did a fantastic job. I was blown away by his presentations and style of instruction. He is truly a brilliant man as well. I think I have the information I need to allow me to become the best strength trainer on the east coast.

The quality of instruction was off the chart. The scope of material was what every trainer and every coach everywhere needs to know. This was a course in becoming an elite trainer. As far as practical use, there was nothing presented that could not be applied. In fact there was nothing presented that should not be applied."

Yes, this will bring HUGE RESULTS for me and my clients. I want to register right now for the Easy Strength Workshop.

Athletic Achievements, training background or specialty: RKC Team Leader, CK-FMS, 2 CDO COY, member 1988 Olympic Taekwondo team, trainer at Victorian Institute of Sport, author for UltraFit, Blitz and Inside MMA. 18 years experience PT.

"Pavel and Dan have managed to cram a lifetime of strength coaching experience into 3 days. The incredibly complex problems of human performance was distilled, in typical Dragon Door/Pavel style into simple and easy to understand frame works.

Pavel and Dan John are as advertised. World Class experts on strength training who can make the complex single.

As with every event I have attended – magnificent. The cost of the trip and course ($6000 AUD) will easily be earned back."

Somnath Sikdar, Personal Trainer, Dragon Gym Owner, Exton, PA

"I feel that I am coming away with an impressive and extensive supply of training tools and methods. Every topic felt applicable to my own practice, and the service of my clients and customers.

This workshop probably had 2 times the scope of material than any other specific course I have taken. I found all the information practical."

Cole Summers, Winnipeg, Manitoba, Strength and Conditioning Coach
Athletic Achievements, training background or specialty: Many sports, including Martial Arts, Rugby. Team Canada Strength Coach. High School Strength Coach.

"Absolutely incredible! It exceeded my highest expectations!

Outstanding all around. Great intellectual material. Great hands on coaching. Learning from world-class coaches and masters of their art. All extremely personable. Their love of sharing their knowledge shines through.

As all my previous RKC, Dragon Door experiences the workshop stands at the head of the class. It keeps getting better every time." 

John Heinz, Upper Black Eddy, PA, Blacksmith, Farmer, Martial Arts Instructor

"The Scientific Strength Secrets for Extreme Performance workshop contributed to my understanding and practice of kettlebells in the following five ways:

Allows the layman and professional to access a wealth of information. Pavel and Dan have done the "heavy lifting" and provided a fantastic educational product. The combination of both of their teaching ability and knowledge (gained from years of hard) work is priceless." 

Diana Volante, Downingtown, PA, Assistant Manager Vitamin Shoppe, RKC I
Athletic Achievements, training background or specialty: I only started training for the first time in my life two and a half years ago. I lost over 70lbs using kettlebells and have not stopped training with them since. I certified as an RKC in Philly in October 2009. I am currently deepening my education in minerals and supplements as a part of the management team with Vitamin Shoppe, Inc.

"The seminar was the basic education I need to know to be a RKC and trainer, as well as the deeper specific education I need to meet my clients’ needs and better my own training.

Priceless! I am glad this will be a book! I couldn’t stop writing. I need to re-read everything. It was very "bite size" and easy to digest but I will want to review and share. One thing that I enjoyed learning was the positive and negative effects on the nervous system and it’s consequence on training." 

Joe Walker, Ringwood, NJ, Studio Owner
Athletic Achievements, training background or specialty: RKC, Collegiate Distance and Cross Country Runner

"Pavel and Dan took some of the most confusing topics in modern fitness and manage to make it understandable to most populations. I will never approach program design for my clients in the same way ever again. Selfishly, I’ll never train myself the same way again.

Everything that I have ever learned from these gentlemen has always led to greater success in physical pursuits for me. Their knowledge has helped me achieve things I never though were possible for me. They have also helped me become a better trainer in a surprisingly fast time, much to the benefit of my clients.

All of the RKC programs are always head and shoulders above all other programs in the industry." 

Shaun Cairns, Senior RKC, South Africa

"Gives you permission to throw out a lot of the "noise" in the fitness and strength industry and focus on what it important for your clients."

Athletic Achievements, training background or specialty: Shotokan Karate of America Shodan, CSCS, RKC

"Pavel and Dan shared their tremendous scientific and practical knowledge of exercise with amazing energy. They were able to simplify the complex subject in a very understanding way.

This was an excellent seminar in all aspects. Highest quality of information – depth and scope. Great take home information and you will be able to make practical use, with anyone you train. Of the material, this seminar will be of great value to you and your clients."

2 – Seminar lived up to all marketing hyperbole – a Dragon Door hallmark.

Simply put, they can teach and teach together like the Rolling Stones." 

Sebastien Vachon-Gravel, New Maryland, New Brunswick, Canada, Full-time student

"I am so happy I was able to attend. The information given will help me with my own goals and the goals of my clients without killing oneself all the time.

Very high quality, I’ve learned new techniques to perform during lifts and new technique in programming training sessions.

5 star organization, 5 star information, loved it 5 stars overall."

Delaine Ross, RKC Team Leader, Atlanta, GA

"This workshop reinforced truths that we have been engrained with through the RKC program but never before have I seen these principles so well packaged and presented.

This is the best and most useful strength training (aside from the RKC) that I’ve ever been to – a must for anyone who trains other people or themselves."

Athletic Achievements, training background or specialty: Several AAU raw deadlift records in 67.5 kg, male, 45-49 and 50-54 years old.

"A chance to listen to two of the best strength coaches & teachers of strength coaches, in the world today talk about their craft.

It provided an 'umbrella' over many of the things I had heard and read about before. In that regard, it was a new experience for me, and a very welcomed one. I feel that I have effectively 'matured' as a trainer because of what I’ve learned here this weekend."

There is absolutely no question as to their expertise. I came here to learn from the best, and I did, hands down.

100% quality. Huge spectrum of material covered! Very easily transferable to my own training and my clients. I always seek to learn from the best, and this was one of the top workshops I’ve been to as always with DD." 

Denise Harty, Red Deer, AB Canada, Nutrition consultant, Fitness Instructor

"The ultimate weekend for systematic education for strength and condition.

Dan John is a phenomenal man, with a wealth of knowledge, he is easy to listen to and you can see his passion for education others. It is always an honor to be in the some room with Pavel and to be able to learn from someone with so much experienced and knowledge.

Any workshop put on by Dragon is always amazing, they always make a person feel welcome and are there to help in any way. There is a huge difference in quality of instruction, content and instructor experience compare to other non Dragon Door certs.

Just keep this style of workshop available. I see a huge need for this information. I believe this is an area that will make it possible for an RKC instructor to become great.

Amazing workshop!! Loved it."

Bob Orr, Virginia Beach VA

Amanda Clark, NY, NY, Personal Trainer
Athletic Achievements, training background or specialty: NSCA Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist  

"This workshop really forced me to look at programming in a more focused way. It has given me the tools to get my clients and athletes to their desired goals with clear, simple and intelligent planning.

This workshop was far more in depth and supported by years of real experience than any other I’ve attended. Since I don’t train athletes some of it is not practical to me now – but it is all knowledge that can be applied." 

Aaron Gonzales, Redondo Beach, CA, Gym owner
Athletic Achievements, training background or specialty: Jiu-jitsu blue belt

Easy Strength demonstrates how to take all the tools in my tool kit and develop an intelligent program to help myself and clients reach our goals without frying our bodies or our brains.

The presenters displayed insane amounts of training knowledge. Anecdotes were appropriate and the use of humor and simple descriptions made the training enjoyable and easy to understand."

Athletic Achievements, training background or specialty: RKC, CK-FMS, AFAA Certified Personal Trainer Graduate Studies, Social Policy, American University, Marathon Competitor

"It was a huge amount information presented in a very simplistic format. The key there is that Dan John and Pavel have taken something very scientific and put it into a system that is user friendly and will assure results for clients.

These men are not only accomplished at training people to succeed in their sports, they are able to willing to share their hard earned knowledge so that others can train as efficiently and successfully a possible. That shows true commitment to strength and athleticism.

This has been very different than anything else I have done. Full of excellent information that is instantly applicable."

"The workshop has truly been the most beneficial workshop I have been to. The RKC in general is also of the same caliber, but I feel I really gained their knowledge here to be able to apply the RKC better.

Getting a "brain dump" from these men is a great experience and saves the time and money in the long run.

All of the RKC workshops are first rate and this is no exception. The material here really helps in knowing how to better apply all the technical tools of the RKC." 

James Talo, Vancouver, B.C., Letter Carrier / Strength Coach

"Today’s fitness industry is full of a huge array of pieces, parts and technique variations. The teachings and lessons of this weekend are the vehicle and roadmap to sift thru the junk to find methods that will better my athletes and allow them to attain their goals.

Genuine and always engaging with the delivery of their knowledge and experiences. Why couldn’t we learn this way in high school and college? An experience and lessons that will always be remembered. Many thanks to Dragon Door, yet again, for a weekend so well done!"

Chris Drier, Merced, CA, Physical Therapist
Athletic Achievements, training background or specialty: MPT, RKC

"I am overwhelmed and humbled to have heard and experienced 100s of man-years of knowledge researched and presented by Dan and Pavel. It will take months if not years to fully absorb and realize what I have learned this weekend.

Their knowledge is the top, they are the best – PHD’s of strength. Their ability to not only present the material verbally – but to take students and demonstrate the techniques with correction where needed.

As an RKC from rural Michigan, I am in the top 5% locally. In this group I am in the bottom 5%. I am always humbled to be in such great company and accepted as a comrade– (or) friend." 

Charles Mutschler, Glen Burnie, MD, Physical Therapist

Yes, this will bring HUGE RESULTS for me and my clients. I want to register right now for the Easy Strength Workshop.

And get surprising answers from
Pavel and Dan to these related questions
—if you want to be at the top of your game:


What is the impact of the strength coach to sport? Shouldn't it be obvious? Then, why doesn't the team with the best gym numbers ALWAYS win?

Should a 1,000 pound deadlifter jog, swim and bicycle? Play in a local basketball league? Should a 12-year old boy rest five minutes between his sets of 92% max on his squat?

Why do the mediocre guys often do so much more than the great guys?

What's a Quality, anyway?

If a training principle was considered backwards and nonproductive in the early 1960s, why would you model your career after it?

How does armor help an athlete and when does it hurt?

"Do you want to be stronger or lift more weight?"

Have you earned the right to train "sport specific"?

Why does it need to be "Strength & conditioning", not "conditioning & more conditioning"?

Do you really need plyometrics?
