  • By Adam G. Clark on 12 October 2009

    This is a very useful book with some great information on the background of plyometrics and the physiological side of plyometrics.The only couple of negatives i have against this book is that the pictures and descriptions left me still unsure how to competently complete the technique as plyometric movement are obviously quite complicated and correct form is vital.The only other negative is that there could have been more information in the exercise descriptions on what the particular exercises were useful for and what sports they could help with, especially with the upper body exercises.All together though this was a great book for learning some really useful exercises, it will be my first reference i turn to whenever implementing any plyometrics into my or my clients programs.

    This book is for rather high-level competitive sports. If you just got up from the coach, forget it. The focus is training for competition results, not health.As a non-native English reader, I am sometimes at loss with the standard(?) US coach terms. It feels like having to cope with unexplained Japanese karate terms.There is no index.

    Great book for anyone who want to include this kind of training in their programme. Which if sports training, means everyone.
