2 PR's +20lbs to a 3x 1 set in first week
Rated 9/10
By Russ Moon, HKCRichmond, USA

The setup improvement alone had me at +20 pounds at the 6 day mark on my Deadlift so the proof is in the results. Pavel's comments on the results, linking it back to techniques or principles, which have worked for me. My goal is a 40lb increase in my 3 rep Deadlift in 30 days.

For Serious Lifters With Serious Goals

mehdi hadim deadlift
"Andy Bolton is to the Deadlift what Tiger Woods is to Golf, Michael Jordan is to Basketball and what Roger Federer is to Tennis. He’s the first guy to Deadlift 1000lb, so there’s simply no better person you could ever learn how to Deadlift from.
If you’re new to the deadlift – Deadlift Dynamite will show you how to Deadlift with proper form so you gain strength and muscle without hurting your lower back.
If you’re already an experienced deadlifter, expect to discover new techniques and cues to take your deadlift to the next level. I’ve been Deadlifting for a couple of years, pulled 3x my own body-weight and yet I still picked up several tips to apply to my own training.

I Wish I Could Have Read Deadlift Dynamite 20 Years Ago…

brian cannone
"I’ve been working in the gym business for over 20 years now. I’ve seen people come in that need to learn basic exercises and circuit training but I have to say this…
I have never seen a world-champion powerlifter and strength coach teach people how to deadlift, squat and bench properly.
The people I see usually just start off doing things incorrectly from day one and eventually end up with injuries down the road. I am happy to have read a copy of Deadlift Dynamite and wish I had the chance to learn from these experts from my start.
There sure are many people that think they know how to lift big and heavy weights but will never reach their potential unless they take it seriously enough to do it the right way. I encourage ALL serious lifters to read this program by Andy Bolton and Pavel!"

I Recommend Deadlift Dynamite To All Of My Trainers…

Jack Lovett 294x300
"As a long time fan of both Pavel and Andy Bolton, I was thrilled when I received Deadlift Dynamite.
It’s very well written and easy to apply, so I immediately recommended it to my team of trainers.
Likewise, I recommend it to all strength training enthusiasts and coaches alike."
   -- Jack Lovett – Owner, Spartan Performance, Multiple Britain’s Natural Strongest Man,  Champion and World Natural Strongman Competitor
Who Needs Deadlift Dynamite and Who Doesn’t Need It?
Listen up.
If you already have a world class deadlift, squat and bench press and feel 100% sure of how you will improve your numbers in the future, whilst staying pain-free and healthy—you might not need this.
If you’re the kind of guy who can walk into ANY gym, start lifting and make people’s jaws hit the floor because you’re just that damn strong—you might not need this.
If you already have access to insider training knowledge from the best strength athletes and coaches on the planet—you might not need this.
However, if you have ONE of the following problems, I highly recommend that you grab yourself a copy of Deadlift Dynamite.
And if you have MORE THAN ONE of the following problems—problems that don’t go away on their own and affect at least 95% of lifters and strength athletes—you need to get yourself a copy immediately…
  • You aren’t getting as strong on the deadlift, squat and/or bench press as quickly as you’d like
  • You’ve been stuck at the same strength numbers for weeks, months or years
  • You want to get bigger as well as stronger and yet, despite eating like a horse, you still aren’t packing as much muscle as you’d like
  • You have annoying aches and pains that just won’t go away
  • You are currently rehabbing yourself from a serious injury OR you have had a serious injury in the past
  • You are somewhat unsure of how to write a killer training program—the kind of program guaranteed to help you make massive strength gains
  • You aren’t sure what the best assistance exercises are for the "big 3"—the squat, bench press and deadlift
  • You aren’t as strong or tough mentally as you’d like to be and you know this because you’ve missed max lift attempts that you knew you were physically strong enough to make
  • You have wasted valuable time "program hopping"—jumping from one training program to another—in the hope that you’ll find the magic training program
  • You have thought to yourself "all I need is a good coach and my strength would skyrocket"
OK, so if you don’t have any of those problems, you might not need Deadlift Dynamite and it’s likely that you are already brutally strong and a world class strength athlete. If that’s the case, I wish you well and please carry on what you are doing in the gym.
However, if you have one or more of those problems, you’re going to love Deadlift Dynamite when you grab your copy today.
Are You Ready To Get A Lot STRONGER?
Deadlift Dynamite is the ultimate "How To" guide for building a huge deadlift, adding slabs of granite-hard muscle to your body, smashing your bench and squat PR’s and bullet-proofing yourself against injury.
As a publisher, it’s my honour and privilege to be able to offer you this book – written by one of the strongest men to ever live and one of the smartest strength and conditioning coaches on the planet.
It is no exaggeration to say that Andy Bolton and Pavel make a dream team when it comes to teaching you how to get a lot STRONGER. And you’ll get all their SECRETS when you grab your copy of Deadlift Dynamite.
Not everybody is ready to get stronger.
Some people never will be.
The sad truth is that many lifters would rather spend their entire lifting careers "program hopping", wasting their time in the gym, making excuses and FAILING to get much stronger. Worse still – many lifters injure themselves and live in constant pain because they lift with horrible form and have no clue about how to program their training in a sensible way.
This leads me back to my original question…
"Are YOU ready to get a lot stronger?"
If you answered "YES" and would love to smash your deadlift PR, send your bench and squat numbers skyward, improve your physqiue – both aesthetically and functionally –  and annihilate your competition in the heat of battle, get your copy now.
You’re going to love Deadlift Dynamite…
Read Reviews For: Deadlift Dynamite (paperback)
9.5 out of 10 (8 reviews)
Rated 9/10 2 PR's +20lbs to a 3x 1 set in first week
By Russ Moon, HKC / Richmond, USA

The setup improvement alone had me at +20 pounds at the 6 day mark on my Deadlift so the proof is in the results. Pavel's comments on the results, linking it back to techniques or principles, which have worked for me. My goal is a 40lb increase in my 3 rep Deadlift in 30 days.

This book I consider to very definitely have a Hardstyle flavor in the background, but ever present. Pay attention to detail in setup and be aggressive (Andy Bolton), reminds me of Donnie Thompson saying "Come up with tremendous power to lockout. Don't play passive."

Pavel's explanation of programming (my favorite is the wave cycle ;) and what it might feel like helps me as I practice to stay as pure to the authors intended outcome as possible. The collaboration works and I thank both of you. My deadlift thanks you.

Rated 9/10 Bolton Outstanding
By Alex Turnamian / Waretown, USA

Andy Bolton is not only an outstanding strength athlete, but an incredible writer as well.Anyone interested in strength development should add this book to their library.Just about every aspect of proper power lifting is explained clearly and thoroughly in layman terms.

Rated 10/10 Injuries
By Johan Kriek / Townsville, Australia

Impressed with explanations on good form and prevention of injuries. Been messing around in gyms most of my life but my son is growing up and him being very active in sport I can now teach him the correct form from the start and prevent unwelcome injuries. It covers all from beginner to pro.

Rated 10/10 Great for a Powerlifter
By Edward Shattuck / Syracuse, USA

If you aspire to be a power lifter, this is a great book. I don't want to be a power lifter. For me, Power to the People is the ticket. I don't care about assistance work, etc.. Mr. Bolton is obviously highly qualified and offers a very comprehensive work. My desire is to simplify. If you are an aspiring power lifter, then this is a great book.

Rated 9/10 Instant Results
By Brian Flynn / Providence, RI, USA

I have been using kettlebells for the past 3.5 years exclusively, with fantastic results. However, the itch has been there to incorporate some barbell work twice a week. I joined a gym and decided to do deadlifts, bench press, squats and pullups. Instant results on all three exercises. Amazing when you've done it wrong for so many years, then do it right. My only critique is they don't tell you how to incorporate all the assistance exercises into the program. But Andy and Pavel rock. If you want to lift the RIGHT way. This book is for you. A great swan song for Pavel on Dragon Door

Rated 9/10 Simple and Effective
By Robert Storey / Noblesville, Indiana, United States

This was my introduction into the world of powerlifting. It has taken my strength to a new level and helped improve my performance in athletics. The approach is really simple and straightforward with clear progressions to address various weaknesses. A great book for improving strength, though if you need more conditioning, it can't be the only tool in your arsenal.

Rated 10/10 Excellent technique tips
By James Webster / Koroit, Victoria, Australia

Great book. Well set out, easy to read, lots of pictures. Lots of helpful technique tips for the deadlift. Wish I had read the book earlier before I formed bad habits.
