Format: Paperback
This book is not very long but contains a lot of information that will help anyone. THere are many myths about getting more exposive. "all you have to do is skip rope" "you don't need to be stronger" "don't do plyometrics they're dangerous, just lift weights" "do a lot of depth jumps." This book dispels myths by looking at the science.

Although the first part of the book is technical, it is not overly difficult. The second part is a detailed listing of the hundreds of exercises that are possible. If you ever wonder how NFL Combine coaches are able to get their athletes to perform so well at the Combine, then this book may shed some light on that.

Buy the book if you are serious about explosive ability in athletics

A lot of good ideas in this book. The planner section also breaks down the more suitable activities per type of sport, whcih is very helpful. Some of the ideas need a bit more creativity for figuring out what equipment to use.

... As a world class and Olympic level coach of Dwight Stones, James Butts, Dan Ripley and others, may I encourage you to use these wonderful concepts that Tadeusz has given. These principles will work very well with our "Aerobic Resistive Rebounding" concept found in the "Olympic Trainer" book available on Amazon.com. Give these concepts a try and you will become a champion!
