Pavel 80/20 Powerlifting
 
New article found here: http://www.fourhourworkweek.com/blog...to-your-lifts/ (wfs)

I think the program makes sense, and kind of like the minimalist approach. Thoughts?

Groovy. I see it somewhere between SS and OLAD. Definitely KISS.

Good read, pretty standard powerlifting routine, not incredibly new, but hits the high points. But do we have to wear these boots and have a mullet?

Only if you want style points. ;)

Good read.....simple is better for most people. That and keeps us focused on what really matters in progression of weights, the right exercises and eating/sleeping.

I liked the article. But what's up with Tim Ferriss' photo on his blog? If his philosophy is taking out all non-essentials in his life, why did he feel the need to get in that ridiculous pose?

Those are actually very close to the shoes I wear on a daily basis. So I've already got style.

No mullet though. Or 700+ deadlift.

I believe these three things are related. Boots + Mullet => 700+ Deadlift.

That's a picture of John Inzer, the owner of the Inzer Advance Designs powerlifting equipment empire. He was a great lifter himself, especially in the deadlift. That picture is from the 1988 Hawaii World Record Breakers meet. He definitely had the monster mullet. Interestingly, he mangled his face in a motorcycle accident a few years after that and had to get complete surgical reconstruction.

Thanks for the info.
