I was first introduced to Pavel’s (Pavel Tsatsouline) work around 1997, give or take a few years. It was his work with stretching that I first encountered. Back then there was no easy access to the Internet so research was mostly done through recommendations and hints from other people.
I believe it was at a Bill Wallace seminar in Melbourne at Billy Manne‘s Gym. Thinking about it now that seminar was pretty amazing, I met Bill Wallace and John Donahue (now recognised as a BJJ master).
The comments from that seminar led me to find and read some of Pavel’s writing specifically in the area
of flexibility, as you can see in the picture It worked. It was through the application of the specific skills that got me there not the random attempts I had been trying before that.
Fast forward 15 or so years and I was introduced to the Kettlebell and again to the work of Pavel, this time his strength and conditioning work, I have been fortunate enough to meet Pavel at the first Australian SFG certification (StrongFirst) in Perth, and like the information passed to me during the stretching seeing with Bill Wallace, the skills Pavel and his team passed to me have had a marked effect on my training and I am better for the knowledge. Its the consistent application of skills that will get you better and keep you going in a forward direction.
So one of my goals for this year is to reclaim my flexibility and return to and improve on my flexibility from those days pre 2000. There is no better time than now to start on your goals. Get in touch with me so we can get you on the path to achieving your goals.
