I know this post will only mirror the many others describing their success using Power to the People! concepts, but here is another absolutely astounded user of The Party's training methods. I PR'd on my raw deadlift today at 495 X 1. I know that at 230lbs BW, that doesn't make me a hero, but I have been following PTTP for only two cycles (and I may have started those a little light at that). Before using The Party's methods, my dead was stalled at 475 for almost a year. In less than 2 months of PTTP, I put 20lbs on my dead with zero fatigue. Although I felt I probably could have gone heavier today, or maybe done it for a double, I followed The Party's advice and did not let myself approach failure. After a few more cycles, I'll add a few pounds, or maybe try the same for a double. I have been working a steady diet of Turkish Getups with up to 88lbs and deads for heavy strength work, never to the point of fatigue. Before PTTP, I followed a very popular workout program that had me deadlifting to failure regularly, and sometimes even doing light deads for up to 15-21 reps. My strength gains were at a standstill. Additionaly, I have not gained one single pound of bodyweight with my strength gains, which is desirable, since I am a firefighter and a martial artist and hypertrophy is not my goal at all. I have a large frame, at 6'0" and a lean 230lbs, and I don't need any more size. Furthermore, another individual I know is using a modified PTTP routine for the barbell clean and jerk, and in only 6 weeks has put 35lbs on his clean, and 25lbs on his jerk. He is lifting more at a BW of 215 then he was at a very yolked-out 265. Power to the People! has helped me sift through a good portion of the sissified nonsense in the fitness world. I do have to admit that I have two other well-recognized fitness trainer certifications, but reading PTTP has taught me ten times more than a few 400+ page text books out there. -Jim Beaumont
I bought Pavel's book about 6 years ago. I now deadlift nearly 2.5 times my ideal body weight (65kgs/143lbs). In terms of power to weight ratio, I outdo all my batch. Which includes international rugby players, military (even some SF guys) and other athletes. Power to weight ration aside, there really are only a handful that will beat me at an arm wrestle.Pavel's book revolutionised the way I started training 7 years ago. At 33, I am far stronger and fitter than when I used to compete at ju jitsu for my university at 21-23 years of age. If only I knew then.The VIDEO is something I should have bought years ago. Its HARD to understand everything from a book. I lived in Malaysia and am now in UAE - so I can't get to a seminar. The video is the closest thing. It is BRILLIANT. Buy it if you want serious results.I reckon I'll be deadlifting more than 3 times my body weight before the end of the year is out (my "on" season target.I wish you all the same success I've had with Pavel's training methods. Power to the people...
Pavel's information in Power to the People is beneficial even for experienced strength training athletes. I found many helpful pearls to increase my powerlifting totals even though I already hold many national and world powerlifting records and titles. I will be using his advice this month in competions. I especially liked his press, curl and deadlift tips. I strongly recommend Power to the People to increase your power.
PTP is an awesome workout even though some may discourage folks from doing the deadlift. In my experience, the deadlift has taken away all of my lower back pain since I started this routine a few months ago. Believe me, a heavy deadlift, along with a challenging press, is all you need to gain overall strength in your body.I know from experience! My shoulders, traps, arms, and legs are all tighter and harder; that's the tone Pavel speaks of in the book. And I've had some muscle growth as well, even though PTP isn't about gaining big muscles. Be sure to incorporate cycling into your lifting routine. You'll experience even better results with it.There is a section on the Bear routine that is for both strength and size. Like me, you'll probably want to do this, but I would encourage everyone to do PTP for a few months before going into the Bear. Also, be sure to visit the forum. There's a whole internet community of lifters ready to answer questions, comment on your routines, or to just encourage and congratulate you no matter where you're at.
I am not large, 6'2 165-170. I lift three times a week, for 20 minutes at a time, sometimes 30. I like to lift, but I am an attorney and haven't more time right now. When I began on Pavel's system, I could do 3 BW pull-ups. Last night I got 2 great form Pull Up singles with 105 lb from a chain around my waist. I got there working 2 x 5, occasionally a couple weeks of 5,4,3, 2, 1, and then this last cycle 3 x 3. People take notice when you pull two wheels and an extra plate or two. It does not take time people, but it takes dedication, and it takes perseverence. Still, considering that I have been lifting year round for 16 years, and my pulling strength did not appreciable improve in the 10 years prior to checking out PTP, I would say to anyone checking this site that it is a great place to start. You will dispell myths and learn a minimum program for success.
Definitely good DVD, but I'd expect to be it longer. So, that was a bit of disappointment. Otherwise - good staff fro Russian comrade!
This video was great. All the gents in my office try to curl the kettlebell on my desk. I could curl the 35 pounder once. After watching Pavel in this video, I tried it on my 44 pounder and it practically shot into my shoulder. In a day I could do two reps of 44 when I could barely finish one rep of the 35.This video is effective. It provides a basis for any exercise that you want to use. I'm feeling better, sleeping better, and getting stronger by the day. Old school simplicity is beating the pants off the machines.
Basic...Simple...Effective. Isn't that what everyone wants in an exercise program? Isn't that everyone wants in most things in life? The saying of, "Keep it simple, stupid!" applies to me as a member of the male species and this policy of simplicity has always been effective for me. "Power to the People" effectively delivers that simplicity.For the lack of a better analogy think of today's fitness industry when compared to today's automobile industry. These factories of fitness and transportation have created and promoted products that are, at best, overwhelming. Which machine do I use for this body part, how often and with how many reps? How many computer chips in my car do I have to replace to make the engine start?I am not the most mechanical person, but for the purpose of fixing and improving an engine visualize opening the hood of one of today's automobiles versus opening the hood of a '56 Chevy pickup? It is overwhelming! With the cars of today it doesn't appear manageable and outside of our abilities and control. I believe that there is a beauty in things that are basic...simple...effective, and that is what "Power to the People" provides. It gives you the basic, simple and effective tools to tune your body with a true sense of control and understanding of how to achieve your goals. It is not that I and others were not exposed to this type of information earlier, but it has not been the continued focus of mass media as the "latest, greatest" silver bullet of strength training, fitness and conditioning. It should be... and over time, hopefully, more and more people will become aware of "Power to the People". I am only disappointed that I wasn't aware of this program earlier.
This DVD complements the book very well by giving examples of all of the techniqes.
I bought the Power to the People book some time ago and assumed the DVD would just cover the same material. I was wrong on that one. This DVD covers a lot of new material not directly discussed in the book, in addition to a new perspective on a lot of the things presented in the book. Also present is Pavel's unique personality; he's in rare form in this video and as usual it only enhances the delivery and never distracts from the task at hand; namely manning you up and delivering great strength gains on a silver platter. I really think that someone considering PTTP should buy both the book and dvd if it's a viable option for them; either is great as a stand alone but togethor they can't be beat. I've aquired a deeper understanding of strength training through the book, but viewing the video has really driven home some of the points that seemed abstract before. As with all of Pavel's products I've purchased so far, this item would be a bargain at any price.
