Default Werner Gunthor - Serious Explosive Power Training for Athletes


I found this article on Diesel Crew, the videos are all in French, but there are some pretty cool exercises in it.

When I first began delving into Strength and Conditioning literature after I got out of college, I was given a copy of a strength training documentary about Werner Gunthor called, L’heritage d’une carriere, by my friend Dan Cenidoza

At the time, I was reading a lot of the materials from the NSCA, and even though they were much more geared toward strength training than the bodybuilding magazines I read in college, even the NSCA manuals did not prepare me for the type of training I would see in this video.

To my dismay, I somehow lost my copy of the tape and had not watched it in years, but I was able to find it recently, in its entirety on YouTube.

Take note, that Werner Gunthor was no slouch. Aside from having one of the most bad-ass mullets in history, he was also a fantastic athlete, who dominated in Track and Field in his time and was the best ever in his country. So if you try this stuff, you better have your mind right, brother.

Below is a bit more information on Gunthor that I blatantly copied and pasted from Wikipedia:

Werner Günthör (born 1 June 1961 in Uttwil) is a former Swiss track and field athlete, who was the best shot putter in the history of Swiss track and field.
Günthör won three straight World Championships, 1987, 1991, and 1993, as well as one European Championship in 1986. At the 1988 Summer Olympics in Seoul he won the bronze medal.
His personal best throw, and Swiss record, was 22.75 metres, achieved in August 1988 in Bern.[1]
The 2.00 meter tall athlete also competed in the bobsled. He trained to be a sanitation installer but later completed study in sports and works today as a sport teacher and track and field coach. He is married and lives in Biel.
