About Soviet System and Pull Exercises


Dear Thibaudeau

I read one of you old articles entitled "'Money' Exercises", congratulations you for excellent work!

In this article you comment that in soviet system the pull exercises (snatch pull & Clean pull) were only used once an athlete reached Class I.
I want to ask you if you can give me a reference of any paper (maybe in Soviet Sports Review journal) where this was commented.

I dont need the paper, just the reference.

Thank you for you help.


It's not in a paper, but in a translated Russian weightlifting text. I have several and don't remember in which one it was. You can order them from http://www.dynamic-eleiko.com/ and I think that Tate sells some of them too at www.elitefts.com


Thank you for your answer
