About the Author

Derek Hansen, MASc, CSCS, has worked with athletes in speed, strength, and power sports since 1988. Originally a coach for track and field athletes, Hansen expanded his services to assist athletes in all sports, with an emphasis on speed development. As a coach and a consultant, he has worked with some of the top performers in the world, including Olympic medalists, world record holders, Canadian National team athletes, professional sports organizations and professional athletes from numerous sports. He has developed some of the top sprinters in British Columbia, and he continues to work with some of the fastest athletes in various sports.

Hansen has also served as a sport performance consultant or rehabilitation specialist to sports teams in the National Football League (NFL), National Basketball Association (NBA), National Hockey League (NHL), Major League Baseball (MLB), Major League Soccer (MLS), and National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division I. From 2003 to 2016, he was the head strength and conditioning coach at Simon Fraser University. In each position, he has provided recommendations on how and when to use plyometric training for off-season preparation, in-season strength maintenance, and return-to-competition protocols following injury.

Steve Kennelly, MEd, ATC, CSCS, has been a member of the New York Football Giants medical team for more than 25 seasons and currently serves as their assistant head athletic trainer. Recognized as a leader in his field, Kennelly received the NFL Assistant Athletic Trainer of the Year Award for the National Football Conference (NFC) in 2012. In 1999 he was part of the Giants staff that was named the NFL Athletic Training Staff of the Year.

Both a certified athletic trainer and certified strength and conditioning specialist, Kennelly has served in various roles and medical committees for the National Football League, Professional Football Athletic Trainers’ Society, National Athletic Trainers’ Association, and the Athletic Trainers’ Society of New Jersey. In 2013, after recognizing a need for quality instruction and programs in injury prevention, athletic development, postinjury reconditioning, and physical preparation, he founded Kennelly Athletics and Sports Medicine, LLC. His goal is to educate athletes, coaches, and parents on proper technique and progressions from fundamental movement patterns to advanced skills.

I won this in a GOODREADS giveaway. "Plyometric Anatomy" by Derek Hansen. Great exercises, beautiful & detailed illustrations, simple but precise instructions, professional verbiage . Excellent reference guide for both coach and athlete alike. Each chapter is tabbed for quick searches. Most of the exercises require little or no equipment. Well worth the nominal expense to acquire the glossy soft-cover printed version!
