Editorial Reviews

Ray J
I have found your book to be exceptionally useful. I followed the programs outlined by your book and broke my competition best throw by a foot in my next completion. At this time I am recovering from an injury and have found your book's programs to be very helpful in my rehabilitation. I have also been impressed with the free charts available online. Tracking my progress has proved to be very motivating during my training.

Your book has helped me improve immensely throughout my high school track and field years. In my freshman year I placed 8th in my State Championship meet. In that year I had no experience with weight training whatsoever. During my sophomore year after using your book and following the different programs for pre and off-season, I improved my place from 8th to 2nd.
