CVETAN GASHEVSKI, training of champions  >>>

CVETAN GASHEVSKI, training of champions  # Armwrestling # Armpower.net

Gashevski trains 4-5 times a week, starting with table work after a 15-20 minutes warmup. Then he goes on to train weights.

I started training in 1991 – says Cvetan. - Until 1995 I trained mostly biceps, forearm and wrist. I fought, I lost, itrained, I fought again and lost again. I kept wondering what I was doing wrong, why did I keep losing?

Cvetan went to neraly every tournament in Europe, was in America a couple of times, but no one could explain to him what exactly was the proper training for an armwrestler. Then, in 1995, he met the president of the European Federation, Igor Achimedszyn, vacationing in Bulgaria. Cvetan asked him to help him pinpoint his mistakes and explain proper preparation. Not even a year has passed, when Cvetan started winning. Not many could beat him since 1996. How does Cvetan train? His training is divided into two parts: strength and sparring. He trains 4-5 times a week, starting with table work after a 15-20 minutes warmup. Then he goes on to train weights. In the period before a tournament, he focues more on table work.
