Rosarium,

Can you explain why you recommend this particular site?

It seems really noisy and disorganized, and I'm wondering what it at this site that is 'novel' or not in a lot of other places? (eat right, exercise)

Am I missing something? Is there a philosophical bent at this site that you prefer?

Could you elaborate?

If you think it's off-topic, feel free to PM me.

I recommended it because the articles on it are good.

There are articles for many goals, including body weight training, martial arts, strength training, etc.

It isn't the best designed site, that is true.

Pavel, the owner, was in the Spetnaz (Soviety Special forces) and a nationally ranked lifter and for a large part of his life, he trained the elite soldiers of the Soviet Union. That is one thing there that is unique. He aims for results and efficiency, with a healthy dose of capitalism (his books are not cheap, but they have the best information I find, despite their poor editing). While most of what he writes is not new, he draws from history and modern studies, so you can see the best of the past and present. His works are so useful because they have everything in an organised and useful presentation so they can be used. You see the same old stuff in the body building, fitness and such books, but his works start out useful from the start. For his books, I think he writes updated ones for some, so there are repeats, and he has a few books which are aimed at a specific type of person (women, usually).

If one wanted one book, I'd recommend "The Naked Warrior" and "Power to the People", depending on the goal. The books focus more on technique and training than individual moves, although the books do use single exercises for designing a training schedule. The Naked Warrior and Power to the People focus on only two exercises each for example (although I think there are many listed near the end, which usually are variations on the core exercises), but the training principles in them are the best for actual use.

The difference about his works is that you could get them, for a somewhat high price, but if you followed them, you'd actually see results faster than I've ever seen anywhere else. His book on stretching for example is probably the best and I've only discovered one stretching technique which is anywhere near the ones he lists, although it is very hard to do alone and it may not actually be more effective than the techniques he lists.

He isn't just about kettlebells, although he certainly has a high opinion of them. They were the primary tool he used for doing his job.
