1 + 1 = 3
The truth is that information plus inspiration give you more than the sum of the parts.
If you have poor information, you head off in the wrong direction, and if you're not inspired, you only produce a half-hearted effort or you quit in the face of the first obstacle. IronMind offers you an alternative to this, by providing books, videos, and photos that give you information from the world's leading authorities and images that would stir the pulse of a corpse.
And when you mix good information with red-line inspiration, there is little you cannot accomplish: that's the magic of how 1 + 1 = 3
IronMind’s training hall videos feature the best weightlifters in the world going through their final paces in the training halls at European or World Weightlifting Championships: action-packed, they capture some eye-popping, jaw-dropping lifts and are guaranteed to inspire you to train like a madman.
Check out the action in these 60-second clips from some of our many unforgettable DVDs:
Training Hall Videos
• 1993 Worlds – No. 1297: the original IronMind video that introduced the whole concept of training hall tapes, with 91-kg Ivan Chakarov doing a “no-no-no” squat with 270 kg for a triple; also Dimas, Suleymanoglu, Weller, Kakiachvili, Tournefier, Nerlinger.
• 1998 Bulgarian Team – No. 1352: A rare glimpse in their world one week prior to leaving for the 1998 Worlds. Vanev cleans 210 kg for five singles; Ivanov cleans and jerks 175 kg; Boevski does a nonchalant 250-kg squat; and Vanev ends a workout with a 245-kg front squat.
• 1995 Worlds – No. 1324: Performance here determined the number of 1996 Olympic weightlifting berths awarded to each country, so everyone came out of the woodwork to score team points.
• 1999 Worlds – No. 1364: What a Worlds: 77-kg Zlaten Vanev cleans 212.5 kg, twice; Huster gets off to a bad start, Dimas appears to have locked up the 85s, but wait, there’s one attempt left and Nassirinia calls for the winning 215 kg.
Here's the book on personal transformation...
by Randall J. Strossen, Ph.D.
SUPER SQUATS: the book that's the legend because of the results it produces. The SUPER SQUATS program for getting big and strong is so effective, it can stand up to anything going. Yet it is so straightforward that you will probably wonder why you haven't heard about it before---there are no gimmicks, secret routines, fancy equipment or exotic supplements.
Based on the classic 20-rep squat routine and using ordinary food and common equipment, the SUPER SQUATS program does carry a price tag marked in the currency of very hard work and the underlying will to succeed. Not only will it turn scarecrows into men of substance, it will also show you what you are made of and it may just change your life.
If you're tired of wearing small or medium shirts, have at it and grow.
