Polish Training Video: Old School and Just Cool

I'd heard about this footage but never seen it until today when someone posted a link to it from the ever wacky GoHeavy forum. This is part of a Polish training video that apparently used to be available from the NSCA a while back. If anyone out there has a copy of this or knows someone who does, please have them contact me. I'd love to get a full copy.

Just the bare necessities to train and even the old Universal gym getting a real workout from the entire Polish national team. Watch the entire thing to get to the accessory training--kettle bells, Universal gym, stall bar work--at the end! Note these guys have to effectively lower the barbell from overhead and the shoulders. No excessive slamming of the weights on the floor just because they can.

This was an excellent find! I have another NSCA video at home that features some more 'alternative' training methods for (I think) the Polish weightlifting team. They run through the snowy woods, over logs fallen across creeks, and other high risk team training methods. Cool stuff!
