This confusion has a lot of riders following the wrong advice and getting the wrong results. However, what if you do need to add some size? Sometimes you can simply be undersized and need to pack on a few pounds in order to stop getting knocked around by the trail. Not necessarily. In his book Beyond Bodybuilding, Pavel Tsatsouline looks into the methods and techniques used to build strength, power and size all at once. Pavel shows his disdain for the modern sport of bodybuilding and the idea of adding size simply for the sake of size throughout the book, although he does give several great tips for adding size through the application of the strength principles.

Dec 28, Jake rated it really liked it Shelves: strength-and-conditioning , sports. Pavel Tsatsouline is one of those guys who produces stuff I like, backed by marketing I usually hate.
On the other hand, I cannot deny that he has put out some good stuff, and Beyond Bodybuilding is no exception.
This is not so much a book as a collection of articles, many of which first appeared in Muscle Media. The book is divided into eight sections, covering power training, training plann Pavel Tsatsouline is one of those guys who produces stuff I like, backed by marketing I usually hate.
The book is divided into eight sections, covering power training, training planning, training for various body parts legs, chest, back, arms , and a section on bodyweight training. The good thing about this book is that it contains a ton of information.
The bad thing about this book is that it contains a ton of information. The information is all good, but the book isn't designed as a single, unified, plan. Indeed, there are easily a dozen different training plans in here, and some of them are contradictory. You cannot do everything in this book at once; pick and choose carefully based on your goals. For that reason, I wouldn't recommend this book to a new lifter. There's just too much info here, and it's too confusing.
If you are new to lifting, and want some solid, basic, strength training, check out Pavel's Power to the People, or a similar book I hear good things about Starting Strength, but haven't read it yet. On the other hand, if you've been lifting for a while, and are looking for a new routine or some ideas to spice things up, this is a great resource to have on hand.
I know I'll be using it. Oct 11, Lacii rated it really liked it Shelves: training. As usual the whole book has a Pavel essence the style how it was written, the jokes, everything.
This book will not give you fix workout plans but ideas how to come over plateaus or freshen up your existing plans. If you are into Powerlifting and not a beginner this can be easily a very useful book for you.

Non stop knowledge. Apr 26, Andre Korkush rated it did not like it. Russian this, Soviet that Why would I want to read this crap? Shit book. Jun 20, Jacob Aitken rated it really liked it Shelves: strength-training. There is a danger people face called "immediate success" at the beginning of one's career.
Pavel is guilty of this. They taught us folks who have very limited access to fancy gym equipment that we could be insanely strong and do gymnastic-like feats of strength. Pavel had given his famous grease-the-groove philosophy of strength training. He completely trashes that in this book, or so it seems. This book is not written for functio There is a danger people face called "immediate success" at the beginning of one's career.
This book is not written for functional strength-trainees or body-weighters. It is designed for those with access to a unique type of gymn. Now, if you do have such access, this might be the book for you. Cons of the book: Every chapter has a different method for how often one should lift. Now, on one hand that's fine.
People's bodies are different, politically-correct hippies notwithstanding. Still, at the end of the book I felt like I had been overwhelmed with conflicting and often confusing information.
My thoughts: if you've been training for more than a few years, you probably already have a good idea of what you should be doing each cycle.
Pros of the book: I did learn some stuff. I am still a religious adherent of the low-tech philosophy of weight lifting. Pavel showed a number of highly useful and clever, yet relatively simple leg exercises that require only a few kettlebells and a barbell. Conclusion: As far as bodybuilding books go, there are worse ones. I found the book off-putting because it seemed an implicit rejection of all the strength-training principles that made Pavel great.
He really is no BS. It is rare to find anything to truly believe in. These days fads, gimmicks, and straight up falsehoods rule the day. Well, mon ami, your search is over. This is the absolute real deal. All claim the how but few demonstrate the why. Pavel is a true master trainer. His program does and will work for you.
C'mon America lets shape up with a Russian coach. Well, there you go. One of the better books by Pavel Tsatsouline. The only other one worthwhile reading is Power to the People, and even then, one can get away with only reading Beyond Bodybuilding without an interest toward any other literature by the same author. There are some really valuable gems in this book and it is worth a read. I particularly enjoyed the sections on the tactical 3x5 workout and the push-up programs.
Not bad, but not Pavel's greatest work either.
