Paul Kelso serves up a humorous and insightful account of effective basic training for powerlifters in an informative--and entertaining--common-sense approach. Beginners, intermediates, "raw," and single-ply lifters will benefit from the old school training information, including complete coverage of powerlifting basics, training for size and strength, forming a club, contest training--and living to tell about it. You'll laugh while you learn with this "training novel" about the adventures of Lope Delk and the Wampus Cats college club as they get ready for their first meet; and find out about the Stretchmark Machine, the Beer Mine, Kelso's Laws, and the Seven Deadly Sins of training. IRONMAN magazine called it "a true classic" and Powerlifting USA deemed it "the ultimate blend of hilarity and common sense in strength training."
