Editorial Reviews

Review

Tim Tebow once engineered spectacular fourth-quarter comebacks, and Centennial's star swimmer Missy Franklin has her eyes set on the Olympic podium. What do these superstars have in common? The man who drills, pushes, and whips them into shape.
(5280 Magazine )

...[A]n incredible read that provides inside information like no other. Landow and Klis talk about workouts with Tebow, the major role that Brady Quinn had in leading this team through the off season, and what it took to run a sort of grassroots workout program for a professional team. Included in the book are also tips for minimizing injury and motivational strategies that can be applied to any sport.

About the Author

Loren Landow has trained more than four hundred professional athletes (including seventeen NFL All-Pros) in numerous sports to maximize their athletic potential while reducing their risk of injury. In addition, Landow serves as a consultant for several professional organizations and serves on the S.P.E.E.D. advisory counsel, a position reserved for the top performance coaches in the country. Landow was also named performance coach for Shane Carwin's team on the upcoming season of The Ultimate Fighter, airing on FX beginning in September 2012. He lives in Aurora, Colorado.

Mike Klis covers the Denver Broncos for the Denver Post and was one of the few reporters allowed into Landow’s off-season training sessions. He was also named the 2012 Colorado Sportswriter of the year by the National Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association (NSSA).

I should have paid more attention to the description before wasting money on this.

The Kindle edition formatting is poor; the photos and sidebars aren't integrated well with the mainline text.

During the lockout, NFL players could not use their team's facilities or coaches to train.

I should have paid more attention to the description before wasting money on this. At least the book description is an honest reflection of what this book is about: "....this story tells how Landow brought a disparate group of players together to form the 2011 Denver Broncos—the team everyone had written off from the start—that went on to win the AFC West." If I had been more careful, I would have stopped right there since I am pretty sure the GM and head coach formed the 2011 Broncos and not an unofficial strength coach.

Read this only if you think 232 pages of self-aggrandizement is interesting. Another example to quote from the book: "Forgive Landow if he felt a warm measure of satisfaction. These were his guys. He would never say this, of course." Beg to differ - you just published an entire book of self-praise.

For someone who's aspiring to be a football player, this detailed book about NFL players' training regimen conducted by noted athletic trainer, Loren Landow, during the 2011 NFL lockout, would be a godsend. For a casual fan like me, I wish there'd been more football and fewer training tips.

It's an interesting story. During the lockout, NFL players could not use their team's facilities or coaches to train. There were no organized training events. However, this noted trainer contacted a Denver Broncos veteran and they set up optional training sessions for team members who wanted to participate.

It helped!! After a dismal 2010 season, the Broncos did much better in 2011, after the lockout. They were in better shape and, for the players who chose to participate, they suffered fewer injuries.

I would've loved to have seen a "bigger picture" book about what NFL players do to train. Instead, this book was focused on what a smaller group of players did for training during a several month stretch (May to July of 2011).

It's pretty skimpy. It's a short book and many of those pages were devoted to photos of players performing individual training exercises.

Still, it was an interesting "insider look" at what some NFL players did to get into shape. I also enjoyed the insights into the personalities of such players as Tim Tebow, Brady Quinn, and others.

If you're a big football fan, you might love this one. I enjoyed it somewhat but can give it only a lukewarm recommendation. Not bad but it could've been better had it been a bit better organized and focused and offered up more football and fewer training tips. Several times, for instance, information was introduced as though it were new, when it wasn't. As a reader, that's just annoying.

This book weaves the story of how the author worked with members of the team during the NFL lockout, with descriptions of their workouts. The author's descriptions of the players their motivations, and some of the insights into their personalities was the best part of the book. But, it isn't quite a workout book, and the story really isn't extensive enough for a novel, so it really isn't successful from either perspective. The Kindle edition formatting is poor; the photos and sidebars aren't integrated well with the mainline text. Sorry that I can't recommend it to others, despite the great title.

This book is not only the next best thing to being there, but a tiny glimpse into Loren's innovative training methods. I have known Loren for 8 years and have referred numerous athletes to him. The results have always ranged from amazing to incredible to miraculous. But what I love about the book is the way the reader can get a sense of the genuine care and concern Loren has for every athlete. He becomes a part of the family.

Well written, informative, funny at times, and very insightful. A true must read!

This book is a great read about what goes on behind the scenes for pro athletes during their training. There are also exercise suggestions for athletes to improve their performance.
