This book covers all the basics of Plyometrics, has good descriptions and pictures. However, people who already know the basics will want something a little more advanced.

It's a good investment overall.

In this short but packed book, the author clearly spells out how plyometrics differ from other traditional categories of excercises such as plain weight lifting, interval training or endurance aerobic trainings. Also, in a short account, he clearly explains the benefits and possible risks of plyometric excercises. It was intuitive enough for me to put a heavy emphasis on plyometric training in my weekly routine. I could understand how each specific movements will benefit my performance. I am an amateur triathlete with a full course marathon record of 3:35.

Now the shortcomings. Some of the illustrated pictures don't adequately give a novice enough information on how to correctly carry out the specific moves. Maybe a movie clip, and slow motion scenes would have captured the entire move much better, but I think I am pushing it here. Anyway, I would have loved a bit more intermediate pictures for complex movements. Also, on the pictures, vector force arrows could have improved this book. Arrows could have shown exactly the direction, angle of movements.

Overall, quite good sets of plyometric exercises are covered in this book for some very popular sports.

Very clear and prescriptive programmes set out with photos for each sport. I used the ski programmes this year and was very happy with results...

Format: Paperback
Here is an excellent introduction to plyometrics for beginners and workout ideas for all levels. Written in simple, understandable language, with many examples and photos, this book helps one can choose the workout he/she wants and practice at one's current level. The chapter on basic training principles is very helpful. But at all levels, it is best to use caution and common sense, and obey the body when it resists. With consistent practice, progress can be made at one's own pace. Enthusiasm is good, but safety is more important. The author makes this point on the section on `common mistakes' (page 23). It is heartening to note that he does talk about avoidance of injury. In the end, the practitioner alone is responsible for his/her health and well-being.

Very good book.
