    When he was born he weighed 15 pounds. That was the start to his greatness and bigness.


    What he called fun was getting up early in the morning in Siberia, running through the woods in knee deep snow about 6 miles, then drinking a gallon of milk and sleeping for 2 hours after that in a warm bed.

    when I originally saw it, there was no picture. The picture makes up for ruining my NAFTA joke.

    Here are some Alexander Karelin resources:

    His Russian website (in Russian):
    http://www.karelin.ru/ps.html

    I typed in "Alexander Karelin training" into google and came up with plenty of links that may be of use to you:
    http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&s...-revision&cd=1

    There's a Yahoo group that's a tribute to the Siberian Tiger:

    http://sports.groups.yahoo.com/group/AAKarelin/

    On the "up close and personal" profiles of Karelin produced by NBC for the Olympics, the training routines I remember being shown and/or mentioned were carrying a refrigerator on his back... and trudging through very deep snow. These options may not be readily available to you.

    Good luck in your quest.
