So far, if you think Zatsiorsky established an unreachable benchmark when he released the first edition of "Science and Practise of StrengthTraining" in 1995 (and the second one in 2005), the latest expanded edition of "Supertraining" by professor Yuri Verkhoshansky is arguably the most comprehensive book ever written in regards to theory and methodology of sports training and performance.
Do you want to know where the Conjugate Sequence system, Special physical preparation, long delay training effect and block training systems are extensively, humbly and scientifically explained? "supertraining" by Professor Yuri Verkhoshansky, the man who truly invented plyometric training, the same strategic resource so misunderstood and even butchered by "coaches" around the world over the years. Therefore, if you want to know the raw facts and enhancing your knowledge to a whole new level, please do yourself the best favour: Read "Supertraining".
By the way, even the fact it was written more than 10 years ago, "Facts and Fallacies of Fitness" by Dr Mel Siff is also a great book highly recommended to those coaches and personal trainers serious and keen enough to improve knowledge based on reliable scientific and unapologetic grounds. Cheers, Will
Consequently, while reading Dr Verkhoshansky's version, i can't help but wondering how different it this one from late Dr. Siff's version. Therefore, somebody out there, could you, please, tell me the main differences between Verkhoshansky's and Siff's editions? If Dr Siff's last version featured information unavailable in Verkhoshansky's expanded version, i would get Dr. Siff's version in a heart beat. So, i would highly appreciate your feedback. Thanks for reading. Will
