The friend who made me into a amino acid junkie before Christmas offered me his PT services recently. I happily accepted, knowing it would be a degrading experience. And without saying to much, it was. And it felt amazing. He said things like This was Arnolds Schwarzeneggers favorite back in 1980. One guy he constantly refered to was Pavel Tsatsouline so I checked him out… He wrote several books, all with a very Cold War-kitschy names! How about titles like…

  • Enter the Kettlebell! Strength Secret of the Soviet Supermen
  • From Russia with Tough Love: Pavel’s Kettlebell Workout for a Femme Fatale
  • Power to the People! : Russian Strength Training Secrets for Every American
  • Bullet-Proof Abs

I want them. I want them all.
