This is a very good book on strength training in that it relates specifically to many different sports. The only problem is that there are complicated terms, abbreviations, and vocabulary that are constantly used (with definitions and explanations upon first reference only). A glossary in the back would be a big help. Overall, this covers a lot of sport specific training methods which allows the reader to more or less pick and choose the best practices for his or her own training program. It's been a big help for me, although I recommend staying away from the plyometrics section.
A very well written book on Periodization for sports training. Dr. Bompa has all the bases covered in this book for a complete sports training program. The book includes a sections on training, and theory of Periodization, structure, and format or Periodization for individual sports [ covers every major sport ], an exercises selection, along with some pre, and post exercise information. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who wants a solid training program tailored to their specific sports needs. Another good book on Periodization.
This was a good solid book. You learned a lot about strength training and different methods to go about it. The only weakness was that it was complicated to learn everything, and you need to have a lot of patience to finish it.
