Introduction to Russian Weightlifting Library Books {translations from Russian to English} The Works of Yuri Verkhoshansky: / Fundamentals of Special Strength Training in Sport / Programming and Organization of Training Verkhoshansky is one of the founding fathers of Soviet sport science. His books are essentially reviews on various aspects of strength training for sport of Soviet era literature. Verkhoshansky is one of the originators of, but who is given most credit for popularizing the ‘depth – jump’ to develop explosive strength. His main contribution to sport science consists of ingenious identification, categorization and organization of the basic elements of dynamic sports. And, based on this categorization and organization coaches can select the best exercises and methods for training. Concepts for training in these sports are developed around the requisite contribution of various skills and physical qualities. Many concepts/terms which are now commonplace were coined, i.e., invented, by the Soviet school of sport science. Here are some examples of the these terms which are widely used without knowledge of whence they originated: speed strength; starting strength; explosive strength; acceleration strength; explosive – isometric force; explosive ballistic strength; explosive – reactive ballistic; periodization; plyometrics; dynamic correspondence. The Verkhoshansky ‘recipe’ for developing a strength and conditioning program is to identify the relative contribution of the various physical qualities inherent to a specific dynamic sport such a s sprinting in track & field, swimming, boxing, and so forth. Exercises are selected around developing those qualities with the ultimate aim of enhancing the athlete’s performance in his/her given event. “…technical mastery in those sports requiring the display of explosive force, is determined first and foremost by speed strength preparedness and the athlete’s skill to fully utilize it.” “.. it is necessary to develop a power reserve of motor potential, i.e., the development of motor abilities to a level which exceeds that which is necessary for executing the motor task.” The rational application of science, which is the Verkhoshansky’s (the Soviet) method is to be contrasted with the commercialized approach to training in the USA. The sale and or commercialization of training methodology, exercise devices, coaching certifications and such, stifles any semblance of objectivity.

The Barbell Prescription: Strength Training for Life After 40 directly addresses the most pervasive problem faced by aging humans: the loss of physical strength and all its associated problems - the loss of muscle mass, bone mineral loss and osteoporosis, hip fractures (a terminal event for many older people), loss of balance and coordination, diabetes, heart disease related to a sedentary lifestyle, and the loss of independence. The worst advice an older person ever gets is, Take it easy. Easy makes you soft, and soft makes you dead. The Barbell Prescription maps an escape from the usual fate of older adults: a logical, programmed approach to the hard work necessary to win at the extreme sport of Aging Well. Unlike all other books on the subject of exercise for seniors, The Barbell Prescription challenges the motivated Athlete of Aging with a no-nonsense training approach to strength and health - and demonstrates that everybody can become significantly stronger using the most effective tools ever developed for the job.
