For example, weightlifting exercises, clean and snatch, are commonly prescribed to track-and-field athletes but while reading the book, you will notice that except the javelin throw, there is little or none positive transfer observed from weightlifting exercises according to the data the author has worked on. The author concludes that the exercises which mimic the movement of an actual sport is much transferable to improve the result of the sport.
The data shown in the book is really valuable, collected by the author in his involvement in many Olympic teams as a professional coach having a PhD. The book suits the coaches and athletes who want to remodel the exercises for a proper achievement.
Understanding that the exercise you implement can give many different responses in training is something that is missed in majority of training programs. Dr. Bondarchuk shows proof of what actually correlates to improvement in various Track & Field events. This has made me try to dive deeper into examining exercise selection in training for all sports.
If you want to guarantee that what you implement improves who you are training, this is a good book to get familiar with.
In this great text Dr. Bondarchuk, a former world champion and Olympic gold medalist himself and the most successful sport coach in Olympic history, has outlined the significance of ensuring that the training process registers highly in its meaning towards the athlete's further perfection of their discipline rather than simply improving the common measurables that poorly correlate to high sports achievements in disciplines other than powerlifting and weightlifting.
I give this text the highest possible rating as, in my view, this should be required reading for anyone associated with training athletes.
