Dr. Chu has put together an outstanding work showing very simple easy to follow exercises to increase athletic potential. As an Olympic level coach in the high jump, coaching the great Dwight Stones in 1984 and beyond, we used many of these principles in Dr. Chu's book and others that we developed. Let me emphasize the importance of having total physical strength as well as excellent conditioning before one is to follow these drills. There are many injuries that novice coaches and trainees can incur doing plyometric work. You will find some of the ways to do similiar drills in a less traumatic fashion in my book the "Olympic Trainer -- Fitness Excellence through Resistive Rebounding".
