Spetsnaz Workout

spetsnaz workoutThe Russian Spetsnaz are considered to the Russia’s elite Special Forces unit. Spetsnaz literal meaning is “special purpose forces”.

The training is rugged and meant to weed out the average soldiers to only have the cream of the crop. The very best.

Spetsnaz candidates are trained in weapons and hand to hand combat (Systema).

Question: Do you have any other books that you recommend?

Check out Spetsnaz: Russia’s Special Forces (Elite). When the shadowy, notorious Spetsnaz were first formed, they drew on a long Soviet tradition of elite, behind-the-lines commando forces from World War II and even earlier. Throughout the 1960s-70s they were instrumental both in projecting Soviet power in the Third World and in suppressing resistance within the Warsaw pact.
