Title says it all. I wish I knew Polish? If anyone on the boards knows any I'd sure like to know what the narrator is saying about the lifts being done.

A friend of mine gave me an English-dubbed DVD version of this. You're not really missing much in terms of narrative. In that YouTube clip, most of the exercise descriptions are pretty basic (e.g., squatting with the bar on the back is one of the most effective exercises...). Doesn't really go much beyond that level.

The parts not shown (as the entire vid is about 1hr 45min), are pretty interesting to watch though. Quite a few clips of general conditioning.

The video opens with running in the forest, agility work, balancing, jumping, log throws (to the front and rear), swimming and cross country skiing, of all things. And more running.

Some other activities shown:
handstand pushups
sprints
leapfrogging with partner
wheelbarrows
somersaults forward/backward
flips, forward and back
flags
etc.
...plus volleyball and basketball

There's more to the video, but it's late and I'm tired.

When I get a better computer, I'll see if I can rip an mp4 or something from the DVD.

Ha! Gotta give props to the unsung hero of the famous Pisarenko high-pull photo.

Special thanks to the Fat Bastard Club for their assistance in providing and digitizing the VHS.

They do some funky stuff in there. Strangest were the clean deadlift negatives in part 4. Spotters help lift to the hang, athlete lowers very slowly to the floor. Thanks for the link!
