    Pavel Tsatsouline?

    I have finished reading Pavel Tsatsouline's book "Power to the People", which describes russian/eastern european training methods. I am training for all around strength for the sport of wrestling and I want to know your opinions on his training methods.

    He encourages basic lifts such as side press, bench, and variations of deadlifts while discouraging lifts such as anything that involves a machine, any isolation movements, and squats (he has his reasons. He has trained many olympic athlets of all sports, Spetznaz, and american special forces, and introduced the kettlebell to america,so I will trust him).


    (The emphasis is for strength and athletic performance, not size or bodybuilding)
    If you havent read his book, in a nutshell it is basically:
    Do 2 sets of: deadlifts, sidepress or bench every session (6 a week for me)
    Max 5 reps per set
    first set go heavy, second do 90% of that weight for back-off
    never train to failure
    take plenty of rest time between sets

    I just did the first session of his routine today.

    I also plan to add clean and jerk and pullups to my routine.

    Progress:
    height: 5'10"
    weight: 188 (I need to cut to 171 for wrestling but I have no problem doing that)
    Bench 1RM: 255
    Squat 1RM: appox 350
    Deadlift: 365x5
    Pullups: 6
    BF%: no idea but i can post pics if nessesary
