Stop all the nonsense of P90X T25 Insanity workouts, and once and for all take working out seriously.

Its a long term commitment, no magic formula to stay in shape, easy: no junk food, and a lot of sacrifice.

I was tired of reading all kinds of routines online, magazines, videos, etc until I found this book. Teaches you the fundamentals of muscle power on plain english. Touches briefly the history of routines, workouts in colleges and how it all started and became part of the american culture. Its a great book, nice illustrations, up to date routines. Although its paperback, the book does not seem cheap, very high quality.

I do a lot of cycling and jogging and was looking for that extra edge, and by implementing some of the fundamentals from this book I have gone past a exercise plateau, recommended!

This is the best book I have ever read concerning weight training for athletic development. I am a C.S.C.S, have a Master's Degree in Exercise Physiology, have earned various certificates through personal training organizations, and have coached weight training and football for over 20 years. I don't pretend to know everything but one thing I can guarantee is that this is an outstanding book by a legend in the field of strength training and conditioning for ATHLETES. This book is very informative from a scientific point of view and the program that is recommended is extremely logical and easy to follow.It will take a lot of initiative on the part of the coach to organize.The program is a 4-day split format that contains two explosive lifting days and two strength lifting days per week and progresses from beginner to intermediate through advanced levels.If you or your athletes are not slackers you will see some very good results.I had read Complete Conditioning for Football written by Coach Epley's assistants at Nebraska and had a lot of success following that program with my athletes. I bought this book when it first became available and have blended the two programs ever since. My athletes like the program and progress well in the olympic lifts and in their squatting ability. They don't seem to get that strong as they would like in their bench press but that may be related to genetic issues or something that we're not doing. I like this book so much because it pertains to training for athletic improvement and not bodybuilding. If you are looking to implement a quality program to build athletes this and the other book I mentioned previously are definitely the two places to start.Read more ›

As a high school strength and conditioning coach, I use this book as my main reference. I also attended one of his seminars, so I have combined my seminar notes along with the principles of this book.

Coach Epley, is one of the greastes coaches of all time. Learning the Husker Power system has been a privilege and is something that I will continue to utilize throughout my career.
