From Book News, Inc.
“This book offers a complete method for athletic development that focuses on training the body the way it will be used in competition, in order to develop movement skills, body positions, and power for any sport. Boyle (a strength and conditioning coach formerly with the Boston Bruins) provides tests for athletes to determine their starting points for training, and then divides regimens into training for the torso, the upper body, and lower body. The exercises focus on improving total athleticism, enhancing performance, improving stability and reaction time, and reducing injury. The exercises are demonstrated in black and white photos.”Copyright © 2004 Book News, Inc.

“Mike Boyle could be called "the strength coach's strength coach," this book is amazing!..... This book should be a part of every coach's arsenal.”
