Format: Paperback
Anyone who competes at anything athletic, whether at a high level or just the local Fun Run once a year, needs to read this book. It explains why cyclic training, the classic "two steps forward, one step back" is a must for long-term health and athletic progress.

If simply running a little further or adding a little weight to the bar every day worked, we'd all be world-class marathoners or weight lifters by now. If you want to understand how to exercise for the long haul, this should be the first book you read.

6 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Carol Lou on May 2, 2005
Format: Paperback
I found this technique of timed resting and training to set up a peak performance works for everything I do regularly - bicycling, jogging, swimming, even studying for an exam! It's hard for me to take rest days when they come up on my calendar but I've learned through doing it and reflecting on past successes to trust this system. I was convinced to first try it by the examples of people forced to rest who then had big wins, the planned peak successes by other users of the technique and the university studies that showed peak performances using the same timing as Consistent Winning. The idea of peaks and valleys made sense to me. I'm extremely pleased to have read this book and learn the technique.

I used this book since its first publication years ago and also gave it to figure skating students to read (I am now a retired coach). It works for running, racquetball, stadium jumping. Presently using it for tennis. The hardest thing is to get an elite athlete to take time off to rest. Anxiety drives people to practice, practice, practice. This book explains how and why to avoid disabling injuries for those who want to pursue *rigorous* training for years / decades! Training schedules for various sports are included. Great concepts.

Consistet Winning lays out an easy to follow schedule of training and rest that will fit into any sport. It probably lists over 100 real life examples of athletes that have set personal, olympic and world records using one of the three training cycles. Highly recommended for any serious competitive athlete or trainer.
