Ivanchenko: Russian Training Classic Style


History in Color: On the cover photo, legendary Soviet light heavyweight Gennady Ivanchenko is working out in his Dynamo gym in Riga, Latvia.

Ivanchenko used a wide variety of support and strength exercises in his training session – various press lifts, pulls, dips, etc. In many ways, it was a good example of classic Soviet system in action.
