    Not a meme. I've run the Russian Bear variation from that book multiple times.

    Okay, this looks interesting. Is it worth a read? Are there really secret Russian strength secrets? And what is the program? I'm in the doldrums right now and I'm looking for some new training to run.

        I thought pavel was a kettlebell guy? Seems like a pretty standard program.

          That is just marketing. He is an all around fitness trainer. Traditional strength training protocols and such completely inline with the standard research and tested and tried methods of strength training. He also knows good stretching "programming" and seems to know how to train and develop cardio as well. Nothing out of the ordinary, just good old programming, but with lots of "le soviet secret bad guy techniques" marketing.

      Pavel imho has physiothetapeut background so his explanations are less bro-like

      Also imho the book "super joints" is great

    I replaced kettlebells with plates and the difference is insane. Especially if you use wide crossfit plates.

    Yes, anyone who larps "russian wartime workout", "tranning for unarmed combat", "prison style workout for survival" or any other larp edgelord shit is just selling a basic dumbbell or bodyweight workout for easily impressioned begginers. Also, most of those workouts are not even good.

    If you want a good workout start learning how to make your own program or find a coach.

    This guy is good for combat athletes and people like that. He's bad for most other endeavors. He's good overall for someone looking to just get healthier

    Yes and no. The Naked Warrior taught me bracing well enough to be a very competitive high school powerlifter, but his programming is hit and miss. PtTP might work in that you're getting one or two effective reps per set, and there's a lot of sets, but dancing on the line between with minimal necessary exertion and sets that do nothing, as well as seeing how thin you can spread the volume over the week, is gambling with your time.

    Nope. These books came out LONG before everyone were faking it.
    Pavel provides genuine great advice.
    Imho his "soviet" themed titles are the sole marketing attempt someone pitched him when he emigrated to USA
