    Does anyone on RJ follow Pavel Tsatsouline's fitness routine? What are your thoughts?

    I think RJ read my mind! The new Ripptoes workout program resembles the 5x5 workout routine of Pavel Tsatsouline.

    A few buddies of mine have done some of Pavel's stuff. Don't know which ones exactly, but they generally like it. I've been on Rippetoe's Starting Strength for the past 2-3 months and it's working just fine. I'm gonna switch it up though and incorporate more bodyweight training on top of the barbell stuff.

    I've read his books, they're pretty thought provoking. I just wish he charged less for kettlebells, I can't afford them.

    Kettlebells rule-if you think your strong, grab a 35 lb. Kettlebell..it'll knock you flying...[I'm a Kettlebell specialist level 1]
