Irresistible Strength and a Body-to-Die-For + How to Add 100s of Pounds to Your Squat, Bench and Deadlift with Advanced Russian Techniques

We are very excited to announce that we will be hosting Pavel’s “Power to the People” Seminar on October 9 in La Jolla, California. This seminar will combine the best of Power to The People (original) and the new Power to the People Professional. For many of you that have been involved with Dragon Door’s educational seminars and have had the privilege of learning from Pavel, Power to the People had an enormously profound effect on how, when and why you train. I have to admit that reading the book for the first time in 2002 was not only liberating for me but set a new course in the direction of how I would train myself and my clients. This Book completely altered how and what I would focus on for the next 8 years.

I am totally convinced that Pavel's information will be life changing for you!!!!

Many of you have heard of or have painstakingly read and studied Pavel’s Power to the People Book. Not only did it set a new paradigm in the fitness industry, it started a “shift” away from high rep bodybuilding muscle routines and toward “real strength training” that originated in Russia and Eastern Europe.

Pavel’s message to me was clear and powerful: Train for Strength and Train for Function!!! Stop micro-managing muscles and start training for function.

Also, “Don’t judge a book by its cover.” “Don’t judge a man’s strength by the size of his Biceps.”


This incredible one day seminar will teach you:

*How to get super strong without training to muscle failure or exhaustion
*How to hack into your 'muscle software' and magnify your power and muscle definition
*How to get super strong without putting on an ounce of weight
*Or how to build massive muscles with a classified Soviet Special Forces workout

But there is much more............

*How futuristic techniques can squeeze more horsepower out of your body-engine
*How to maximize muscular tension for traffic-stopping muscular definition
*How to minimize fatigue and get the most out of your strength training

Look at what Senior RKC Dan John has to say about POWER TO THE PEOPLE:

"This is a graduate program in getting strong. If the RKC is the "School of Strength," this is the special ops class. Honestly, just pick the book up and pop open a chapter. Here are the programs, the thought process, and the actual systems used to produce stunning lifts in the three powerlifts.

I cannot recommend this book highly enough. As my "Must Have" collection of books spirals higher each year, I am comfortable in saying that this book will quietly show the door to one or two of the books on my previous lists. It is that good."
—Dan John, author of Never Let Go

"Power to the People! is absolute dynamite.
If there was only one book
I could recommend to help you reach
your ultimate physical potential,
this would be it."
—Jim Wright, Ph.D., Science Editor, Flex Magazine, Weider Group

"Pavel, thank you for bringing this fantastic training information to the public. I have always felt that getting stronger has a direct correlation with getting smarter. Trying something new, or adding in that missing element of training or form may be just what you need to push through those strength plateaus."
—Brad Gillingham, 2 Time IPF SHW World Powerlifting Champion

"Power to the People Professional is another excellent publication from Pavel. The book contains a wealth of information that will help lifters improve their Squat, Bench, Deadlift and Total. What is refreshing is the no frills approach: everything is written to the point and with no fluff. Advanced lifters must read this book."
—Andy Bolton, 6-time world powerlifting champion, official world record holder in the squat, deadlift and total

"A marvelous collection of thoughts ideas and theories by some of the top strength coaches in the world. The book is full of great information."
—Louie Simmons, Westside Barbell

"I am thoroughly enthralled with Power to the People Professional. There is real passion in this book and it shines through in the characters that populate PPP: these men come alive as Pavel breathes life into their unique lives and diverse methods. Per usual, Pavel's impassioned pursuit of various strength methodologies is peerless; his gathering of tactical techniques makes this book a strength and power wellspring. There is enough substance and meat and grit between the covers of this book to keep the serious power man busy for the next five years.

Highest marks. Excellent on a multitude of levels. This book is a goldmine of tactics and techniques."
—Marty Gallagher, author of The Purposeful Primitive

"Wow. wow, wow, wow! One of Pavel's genius attributes is to take the very complex and state it so simply that anyone can grasp it. He showed us this perfectly in the original Power to the People!, distilling the essence of strength training into a slim manual that became my bible for teaching the basic principles of how to get strong and why they work.

Now, with Power to the People Professional, Pavel has written what is sure to become one of THE most revered books in the pantheon of powerlifting guides; right along with Ernie Franz's The Ten Commandments of Powerlifting, Hatfield's The Complete Guide to Powerlifting and the entire works of Louie Simmons. It is a masterpiece of powerlifting information, history, math, physics and biomechanics STILL written in a way that is ultimately understandable.

Brilliant! An instant classic. ANYONE interested in powerlifting and competitive strength, or strength at ALL NEEDS to have this book. This will not just be read but STUDIED.

Bravo Sir, not only a homerun but a Grandslam."
—Mark Reifkind, Master RKC, former Coach IPF Powerlifting Women's Team USA

What level do you recommend one be at before attending this seminar? I'm not an absolute beginner, but I wouldn't call myself all that experienced, either. Certainly not up to doing the RKC yet.

Franz Snideman said...

Hammer, I would not worry about it. There will be something for everybody. Regardless of your level, it is always good to go over the principles of intelligent strength training techniques.

You will do fine! Hope to see you there!


Matt Maher said...

Franz Snideman said...
