EDIT -

Also, comparing Russian to Bulgarian Training (as stereotypes) stuff:

Russian Training usually use percentages of maximum/competition lifts. Typical loading is doubles at 80% or so. Loading is waved very prescribed, so training is highly planned to avoid any over fatigue.

Bulgarian Training usually uses a 'daily max' which can be anywhere within 10% of an all time max, so around 90% ish. Singles are done there followed by back offs at 10% less. Training is not highly planned, over fatigue is prevented by a natural fluctuation. Lifters being lifters they might take weight too heavy too much, so there's more skill involved here.

Basically when put like that, it doesn't look all that different.
That's a gem. Lot of info in that small nugget.
