    So I've been reading through this site http://plbaza.narod.ru/mor.htm with the help of google translate and babelfish. It's a compilation, in russian, of various people, routines they made or used, some training principles, and so on. It can be difficult, and full of bizzare translations, but there's also some very interesting ideas, which seem to translate better than routines, as they don't involve exercise names and such. So if anybody else is interested, there it is.

    On a related note, can anyone make sense of this:

    Unforutnately, as it's a picture, online translators are useless.

    If nobody else comes by, I can have my gf try and translate it for you in the evening.

    My russian is a little rusty but I think it's actually..

    жв - hammer curls
    тв - preacher curls
    ж - 21s
    т - bench press
    п - abzors

    The top line says "routine for the creation of large gunzors"

    It's not a real routine though, I think the line at the bottom says "note - just kidding, do starting strength noob"
