    See Stefan Botev (AUS) in his final training leading up to the 1995 World Weightlifting Championships (Guangzhou, China). One of Randall Strossen’s iconic IronMind Training Hall videos, it follows Botev through several days of training, including almost a dozen attempts in the snatch at 190 kg or higher, a 250-kg clean, and a 320-kg no-no-no squat. Appropriately enough, Botev went on to win the gold medal in the clean and jerk in the +108-kg class, doing 245 kg. Amazing stuff—and after you watch this video, you’ll want to train like a madman! Some lifters have watched this so many times, they have each workout memorized and can rattle off the lifts, weights, reps and sets. And watching any portion of this video pre-workout has been proven to produce PR performances. Show less
