Triumph of Strength

This a very interesting video. It takes about 45 minutes to watch the whole thing, but there is alot of good stuff. First it gives good insight into the training of the late Vasily Alexeev, who trained on his own and had alot of unique ideas and methods. It also gives insight into his supersized ego and and unflagging confidence. Finally it also shows the end result of training purely for performance at the expense of health. I may be naive, but I really do think you can train for high level performance without necessarily compromising health to do it. It can certainly be a challenge to one's health to train at a world class level. Just know that time does pass and there is a price to be paid when performance is allowed to trump health. Tran hard, aspire high, but be healthy first.
