The exercise selection is very soviet in that there aren't many fancy exercise selections. Lots of work on full lifts, power variations and squat and pull development strength. You will need access to a platform, weightlifting bar and bumper plates. We also recommend the use of Olympic weightlifting shoes, belt and wrist wraps but these aren't a set requirement.
