10. Training philosophy, beliefs, and/or methods? The most important thing in women’s training is a mental preparation, it is often difficult to do. My coach and I began to train using the Westside Barbell method, we were one of the first who practiced this in Russia. But now our method has transformed, in part we use the Westside, and have added a lot of our own unique developments. Over the years, I realized that where people feel overtrained gives better results for progress. It’s a pretty fine line, so you need to learn how to feel your body and take a break when you really need it.
