This book gives you a complete plyometric-based training program that really works.

Progressive training programs also allow you to adjust the level and intensity according to your needs.

High-Powered Plyometrics takes you step-by-step through high-level plyometric training, beginning with an understanding of the principles of how and why plyometrics works.

These principles have worked for hundreds of elite athletes, including intercollegiate and professional football and basketball players, world-class volleyball players and cross-country skiers, professional and Olympic cyclists, marathon runners, and athletes of all ages. They will give you the explosive power you need to compete at a high level in almost any sport.
