Format: Paperback
All potentially interested parties in this book, especially if you are European, should try and ignore the cheesyness of the title. And to be honest the text can be just as cheesy at times, that said however, the information that this book contains is good if you are not already into sports science, otherwise you may have already covered this stuff elsewhere. The concepts posited in the book are not new as they have been around for a long time in the various schools of strength training. Many of the concepts are explained in layman's terms so that you can understand what he means quickly and get to work implementing them in your new routine, or existing routine as a booster. One such example, would be that of "irradiation" or the concept of steadily increasing muscular tension moving across muscle groups as a given weight increases, and therefore makes more demands upon the body as a whole. In this particular case, he uses a bucket analogy - said bucket being held at arms length empty is no feat of strength and can be done by using the muscles of the arm and shoulder, however should one begin to fill the bucket then the increasing weight demands a response from adjoining muscle grops and the smaller muscle groups of the trunk - if the bucket is to remain held in that position. This principle of steadily increasing muscular tension and neuro-muscular learning is basically what is at the heart of strength training, more specifically, the development and improvement of maximal strength.

For a more sports scientific explanantion of these techniques, the reader may want to consult the "Supertraining Forum" online or purchase a (ever rarer) copy of the excellent "Supertraining" from Dr Mel Siff.

This is a must read for anyone training for real world strengh or superb muscles. Pavel delivers revolutionary techniques which will allow you to lift more iron than ever before but while not training to failure. Therefore you maintain your incredible strengh at any day of the week. so next time your asked to move your neighbours dishwasher or arm restle at your local pub, you wont have any excuses that you went to the gym yesterday so your muscles are aching.
Sorry for the over enthusiasm, but its helped me more in my weight training than any fitness magazines or personal trainers or so called seasoned gym rats. As said by the author, "Accept no compromises"...

Good read, I was pleased to see Pavel backs up his claims with science as well. Highly recommended for anyone looking to get into strength training. Has given me lots to think about and will be coming back to this book in the future.

Excellent book if you have been following (and confused by) the workouts and training principles in bodybuilding magazines that seem to contradict each other every other article. Here is a new (well, very old actually) protocol for building progressive strength with less chance of injury with muscular development a side effect rather than a goal (although that is dealt with too in brief). Worth the price for the form guide on deadlifting alone. Just prepare to leave your ego at the gym door (at the start of your cycles at least). Better still, leave your gym - most of what's in there is pointless!

I was expecting a strength program and baring a couple if tips and a base for a program that can be found for free online all you get is ad's and lots of padding,

All in all ok for some info on the 'bear' and the 'delorme' program's but no actual structured program's or example routines!
