Power Training for Sport: Plyometrics for Maximum Power Development. One of the great experiences for a spectator of sports is that wonderful moment when youo watch a superb athlete explode in performance. In figure skating, basketbell, track and field and many other sports, this explosion doesn't just happen.

Tudor Bompa pioneered most of these breakthroughs, proving long ago that it's not only how much and how hard an athlete works but also when and what work is done that determine an athlete's conditioning level. Periodization Training for Sports goes beyond the simple application of bodybuilding or powerlifting programs to build strength in athletes.

Strength training alone will not develop the explosive element needed for athletes in volleyball, basketball, hockey, athletics, figure skating, football or golf. This illustrated resource provides an in-depth look at plyometrics to improve explosive power, quick reaction and the strength needed to absorb the shock of balanced landings. Features include: training principles every coach should know; hundreds of power training drills and exercises; proven techniques to help plan short- and long-term programmes; and defines the sources of an athlete's energy.

This was a good alternative to training for power with weights. Since not everyone can get to a place to workout. I found it helpful in giving me another method to train. I also liked the small variations of each jump along with the jumps being listed in a simple progression pattern.

This review is not a reflection of the book or the author, but of Amazon and the distributor of this title. Looking through the list of my purchases I was reminded that I purchased this title and never received the book.

Having been accused of dogmatism, I feel the need to clarify my review. As for finding alternatives to gym-style workouts this text may very well be of use but as this is not it's primary purpose readers should probably look elsewhere.
That being said, I'd like very much to read the proof of plyometric exercise effectiveness for it is not what Mr. Bompa provides. The premise upon which I wrote my previous review is that the force a human can generate and the motion by which it is applied, are seperate. An athlete's physical performance is based on (1) the efficiency of motion, and (2) the force applied to that motion. Power is the synergy of these two factors. (Power = Force / Time)

Tohji et al. (1991) found that subjects who used a combination of moderate speed and isometric (i.e., no movement) muscle contractions enhanced their maximal muscle power production significantly greater than a group that used both moderate and maximal speeds of movement.
Behm and Sale (1993) showed that subjects who trained one limb at 300 degrees per second and the opposite limb isometrically showed similar increases in high-speed power in both limbs.

(And no, I have no affiliation, but I do not wish to plagiarize.)
Given the evidence I have seen, read, and experienced via my own personal endeavors, improvement in any sport is predicated upon the advancement of strength and skill (and mentality - I suggest The Mental Game of Baseball by H. A. Dorfman, Karl Kuehl, the contents of which apply to any sport) and that the two can be achieved separately. The separation of the two is important because they are inherently safer independent than combined.
P.S. I can speak for no college, university nor NFL team. I do however find it difficult to take the safety advice of an NFL strength coach - unless, of course, he is speaking on the use of hyperdermic needles.
