Sheiko type training works. Also see the Smolov Squat Cycle. And the Korte 3x3 program.

All of these rely on high frequency and high loading of the competition lifts (in Smolov's case, just the squat). They are all also known to produce results. Sheiko is used by Wade Hooper, for instance, and others. Korte was used by... Korte. And Smolov is used by tons of people. The problem with these programs can be the time requirement per workout. Sheiko workouts can last up to 2 hours..

Sorry, didn't mean to jack the thread. Also, the book you're referring to Ado is Practical Programming for Strength Training.
