A REVIEW – “SOVIET TRAINING AND RECOVERY METHODS”
The Soviet weightlifting systems from the s up to were known for breaking many world records, as well as for creating athletes with longevity. I was fortunate to learn straight from Pavel himself about the Soviet secrets of dominance and longevity during this time period. Leonid Taranenko won his first Olympic medal in and his last in at the age of He is not the only older Soviet lifter, either. Vasily Alexeev also set his last world record at age
I had the great pleasure to talk to Coach Tabachnik, who I will call Ben in the rest of the article. I found him to be the most knowledgeable man about sprinting with whom I have ever had a conversation with. He was in the United States after an exhausting trip that finally landed him and his family in Baltimore. His start in track was sprinting and he was very fast. He had his own ideas on how to sprint, and wanted to prove it.
WHY ARE RUSSIAN LIFTERS SO FREAKING STRONG?!?!
So what was considered new then is already 17 years old by now. The model presented here Tables 2 and 3 below is that of the national weightlifting team of the former Soviet Union. To reach their highest potential, Soviet weightlifters must also include supplemental exercises such as squats, power snatches, and power cleans. We combine different types of snatch and clean and jerk exercises in order to obtain the optimum results in the competitive lifts. These types of exercises are classified into five groups although some coaches put squats and pulls in one group :. The first four groups emphasize overload in the lower body while the fifth group emphasizes overload in the upper body. To avoid overtraining, one should combine the first four groups with the last group.
The Soviets and other Eastern European countries knew more about training than anyone else in the world. They had closely guarded, top secret training methods devised in dark laboratories by evil geniuses bent on world domination.
