i originally posted this on the verkhoshansky forum, and the professor said it would be better to post here. i am a 33 year old lifetime drug free powerlifter from australia. i have been using the westside barbell methods for quite a number of years now, and i have made some significant gains. however, they have dried up over the last 2 - 3 years. over the last 6 - 9 months, i have become very fascinated with the training style of the russians. the name that comes to mind almost every time is Boris Sheiko. i dont know if you are familiar with his principles or not, but i am assuming you are [seeing as you both come from russia, i think]. i have a full time job, and a growing family, and i basically have 4 x 1 hour sessions available to me each week [sunday am, monday pm, wednesday pm, friday pm]. i simply do not have the spare time to devote to doing these full routines each and every week. i am wondering if there is a way of reducing the tremendous volume of these routines, or any others for that matter that you consider valid, to fit into this very busy schedule.
many thanks for any and all comments,
