PSE - is solid,
This review is from: Power Speed ENDURANCE: A Skill-Based Approach to Endurance Training (Paperback)Brian MacKenzie has been a foundational resource for a number of years. Only when the launch of crossfitendurance.com occurred was his particular brand of training available to the masses. With the publication of Speed Power and Endurance a text is now available. I evaluated this text as a teacher (I am a University Professor of Kinesiology) and as an athlete (I have been a CrossFiter for over 4-years).
From the perspective of teaching - the information provided in the text is exceptional and well organized. Brian and Glen have done a very good job of presenting a large amount of detailed information in a manner that is not confusing, well articulated and visual. All of these qualities are paramount to the success of instruction. The information is logical and sound.
From the perspective of learning - The method in which the science behind the model is presented is appreciated and I think under represented in other texts. I found the book easy to navigate and structured in a fashion that afforded the ability to refer to various sections without feeling lost. The information is presented logically and to a level of depth that I appreciated. I am experienced with the CFE model and like very much that I now have a reference/guidance tool within my arms reach.
I believe Speed Power Endurance is an excellent guide to training and highly recommend it without reservation.
