Reviews - What do customers think about Build a Better Athlete: What's Wrong with American Sports and How To Fix It?
Helpful manual for serious athletes Oct 2, 2006
Even though I classify myself as a "recreational runner," I still take my training and performances very seriously. I found Dr. Yessis's book to be extremely helpful and inspiring in terms of tailoring my present workouts and looking forward to developing new ones.
Much of the information the book may seem like it's for a professional athlete or for younger people who are starting out on their fitness journeys, but don't be mistaken: there is plenty of practical guidance and information here for athletes of all fitness and skill levels.
Definitely a good addition to your workout library. Maybe you should even consider giving a copy to your coach or trainer!
