Mike Boyle is a pioneer in the strength and conditioning field. While he's been at it over 25 years, he's never afraid to consider new ideas or to change his thought process in regard to training. Quite simply, Advances in Functional Training should be a staple in every coach and trainer's library. Mike Robertson, Robertson Training Systems Mike Boyle is the Godfather of performance training, and he's influenced countless others to become efficient and effective strength and conditioning coaches over the decades. He's a real-life practitioner, one with the experience of literally thousands of clients over the years. Robert dos Remedios, CSCS, SCCC, 2006 NSCA Collegiate Strength & Conditioning Professional of the Year We would be hard-pressed to find someone who has contributed more to the science and practice of keeping athletes healthy and performing at high levels than Michael Boyle. In this new book, he'll make you question what you've done in the past, re-evaluate what you're doing now, and motivate you to think for yourself in the future. Eric Cressey, Cressey Performance
Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende
Michael Boyle is an expert in strength and conditioning and what's often called functional training, and while he coaches daily during the workday, he also writes articles and book, and lectures nationally a couple-dozen times a year. He's the co-founder of Mike Boyle Strength and Conditioning, where he trains athletes from junior high to collegiate level to All Stars in almost every major professional sport. I think he'd agree, however, where he learns the most difficult training lessons is with his aging, chronic-pain-ridden adults, who invariably improve in mobility and ability under his expert guidance. Prior his work at MBSC, Michael was the head strength and conditioning coach at Boston University, where he continues as the strength and conditioning coach for men's ice hockey. The eight years prior, he was the strength and conditioning coach for the Boston Bruins of the National Hockey League; he was also the strength and conditioning coach for the 1998 US Women's Olympic Ice Hockey Team, the Gold Medalists in Nagano, and served as a consultant for the USA Hockey National Team Development Program. Michael has produced more than a dozen instructional videos - the newest being the recently released Functional Strength Coach 3, a 10-DVD set. His first book, Functional Training for Sports was a huge seller, and his second book, Designing Strength Training Programs and Facilities, has helped thousands of trainers and coaches during the setup of their training facilities. These books and DVDs are available through Perform Better.

To understand how you can most benefit from the book you need to take the title literally, it does not present the functional training bible A-Z, rather it builds up on already released books and this discusses only the changes in the author thinking since publishing them. Still, it has a good overview and one can design a very good training plan based on the book.
For me the most important things - eye openers were
- I have always thought functional training is about small weights and balance boards. The author is not against heavy weights, it is just that perfect technique and difficult environments which are kind of his prerequisites - stability boards - are making it very difficult to use heavier weights. Still, the author says even his clients would use heavy weights regularly to develop the required strength - so I believe there is a misconception out there that is clarified when reading this book
- the first chapter, particularly the section on which joint is responsible for flexibility and which for stability - and the impact of this knowhow on exercise selection is invaluable
- for me as a runner, the section on running being not healthy actually does make sense, and I realized that I am not doing running because it is healthy but because I like it - honestly how many time do you hear bikers talk about injuries and injury prevention
Excellent and I would definitely look into this together with some sort of functional movement screen assessment - you do not necessarily buy one, you can see some stuff on internet, but this is absolutely helpful to understand what are your inherent limitations, that you should work on, to make sure you reduce risk of injury when doing sports.
Since 4 years I am working with the functional approach. To put it in a nutshell, functional training is all about movement and posture training with the goal of healthy movements and healthy athletes or clients.
Mr. Boyle's work aims at a deeper understanding in the field of functional training. His knowledge of functional anatomy helped him finding some injury mechanisms. It is maybe only anectotal, but, fact is that he coached a soccer team for over 6 years with no ACL- injuries during that time.
The new book shows the development since his book "Functional Training for Sports", covering over a decade. It also includes some interesting facts about his progress as coach.
I am truly fascinated by the author's honest words, because development means making mistakes. Boyle is straightforward and admits that he made some while doing and shows his readers how he found new solutions. He is still on his way to find the perfect system. This desire helps him progressing and learning from other professionals like physical therapists Sahrmann and Gray Cook, performance enhancement specialists like Mark Verstegen or the research of Stuart McGill.
The coach livings by his approach. He performed nearly all exercises by himself to serve as a model for the book.
The books includes many interesting ideas which are worth thinking about. It also describes a new core concept and the related change in choice of exercise.. Boyle, for instance, writes that performance is more reliable than physiological testing and his argumentation makes sense in my eyes. It does not mean that he denies physiological testing, but his approach is that for athletes it has to be more performance based. Over the years of coaching he observed some interesting things. Especially concerning injuries. He says that pain is mostly one step away from the source of the problem.
He also shares a lot of coaching experiences he has made. I like his teaching rules for movement techniques for Olympic Lifting. Experiences he made with runners result in the devolopment of the endurance cycle.
Mike Boyle offers his colleagues helpful advices for programming with the arranging the programs of his facility Mike Boyle Strength and Conditioning.
His experiences with testing and his tips for choosing of the appropriate equipment are worth reading. If you are an athlete studying only the part of developing single-leg strength and adapt for instance the single-leg squat to your program than this book would be a great investment for your body and, of course, for your performance, too.
His shared knowledge is a very good base to work with. For me as a young man in the field it is very beneficial working with the knowledge of the experts.
Grob zusammengefasst muss man sagen, dass der Buchtitel unvollständig ist. Aus Advances in Functional Training muss Advances in my functional Training werden. Das Buch stellt eine biographieähnliche Zusammenfassung von Gedanken und Schilderungen des Autors zu seinen Trainingsmethoden dar. Grundlegende Punkte (Intervalltraining statt LISS Cardio, Lobeshymnen über olympisches Gewichtheben, Trainingspläne im klassischen Split uvm.) lassen sich genauso in jedem anderen Buch nachlesen. Begründungen sachlicher Art fehlen hier, die gegebenen Begründungen sind durch und durch empirischer Art (ich habe während meiner Zeit als Trainer festgestellt, dass...)
Des Weiteren muss man beanstanden, dass die im Buch angesprochenen Punkte nicht ohne weiteres auf den normalen Trainierenden übertragen werden können. Der Autor gibt Argumente dafür, Kreuzheben und Kniebeugen nur in Abwandlung bis garnicht ins Programm zu nehmen. Stattdessen werden unilaterale Übungen empfohlen (die zwar funktionieren, aber lange nicht so effizient sind wie Grundübungen).
Als Einsteigerbuch ganz gut geeignet, nicht zu selbstloblastig, aber bedarf durchaus einer kritischen Überlegung um die Inhalte auf das eigene Training anzuwenden

1. Do not buy this book unless you have access to the internet to find out what some of the exercises are. Maybe if you already know what a "Heiden and stick" exercise is you won't need the internet, but I doubt it.
2. Boyle works mainly with ice hockey players and American football players. While many of his recommendations may be valild for your sport they could be contraindicated for other sports. For instance, big quadriceps could be detrimental to a gymnast working on the high bar.
3. You can find out the kind of training facility Boyle has by searching the internet and youtube under "Michael Boyle", "Joe DeFranco", "Parisi Speed School", etc. Boyle himself demonstrates some of his favorite exercises on youtube.
4. Some of the equipment Boyle uses can be found in the Perform Better paper catalog or online catalog. Perform Better sells such things such as slide boards and sleds which might be hard to find at most commercial "fitness" gyms and be hard to use in most homes.
5. Boyle himself says he is a 90% person, meaning, I guess, that being right 90% of the time is more efficient and achievable than going for perfection. In reading this book I found myself agreeing with him 90% of the time, but there were other times not so much. So, although there are some real nuggets and gems of training wisdom there are other times when Boyle's biases lead him to minimize or even discredit other training methods.
His reluctance to recommend Jump Bands(TM) -- these are huge rubber bands used by themselves or in conjunction with weights -- is notable. He gives safety as his reason for not using them, and it is obvious that it could be an issue. It is also obvious that their use could be made safe.
more to follow
There really is only one part of this book which is missing - effective strength exercises for the glutes. This is Mike Boyle's sample template for the hip dominant exercises for lower body strength:
"Level 1: First Three Weeks: Cook Hip Lift, Slideboard Leg Curl (eccentric only), Hyperextension, Hyperextension Hold
Level 2: Foot-Elevated Hip Lift, Modified Straight-Leg Deadlift, One-Leg Straight-Leg Deadlift (Progressions)
Level 3: One-Leg Hyperextension, One-Leg Good Morning, Slideboard and Stability-Ball Hip Extension Variations
Level 3: Slideboard Leg Curl (eccentric and concentric phase), Stability-Ball Leg Curl"
These exercises all work the hamstrings and glutes, but work the hamstrings much more (except possibly for the level 1 exercises). If you read the book, it also does a lot more than just work the hamstrings and glutes, but that's a different story. Unless I missed something, the purpose for activating the glutes and strengthening them is so they can do their job and not be overtaken by the low back and hamstrings. A more functional template to encourage glute strength should have the glutes having at least the same amount of work at least in hip extension (but not possibly in knee flexion). Boyle lays out beautifully the template for activating the glutes and he does a superb job of this as I have used just this approach to activate the glutes and improve lumbar movement or one could say anti-movement. An example template which uses glute strengthening exercises could be (and is the one I use with my clientele): Level 1: Progressively Heavy Bird Dog's (to balance strength assymetries and further enhance lumbar stability versus mobility). Level 2: Glute Bridge with Heavy Weight. Level 3: Hip Thrust with Shoulders off Bench. Level 4: Hip Thrust with Shoulders and Feet of Bench. Based on these levels, high step ups off of a pad could be used at any one of these levels to minimize quad and hamstrings involvement, to provide frontal plane stability training, utilize the obliques, etc..
99% of Mike Boyle's book is great and I could write about 10 pages raving about this book, but I encourage anyone fitness professional to read this book from beginning to end to learn how great exercise programming is done.
