Supertraining by Yuri Verkhoshansky (Author), Mel Siff (Author)
Perhaps the most complete book on strength training ever written! Covers explosive strength, power, speed training, plyometrics, loading, flexibility, circuit training, periodization, weightlifting and much more.
"I had the pleasure to know Mel and entertain him at Westside Barbell and was his co-speaker at training seminars. I am honored to have my combination training method listed in Supertraining. This book is a must for a P.H.D. who really wants to learn the truth about training. Supertraining will open your eyes into the views of Y.V. Verkhoshansky, a true genius in the field of sports training. I truly learned the value of kinetic energy leading to my own research about over speed eccentrics and optimal eccentrics plus Mel finally got it through my head, the importance of training optimally. I will never forget what Dr. Siff taught me. "
