In this video review, I explained that I'm very qualified to review this product and why I strongly believe that this book is not specific enough for softball players and is better suited for the general population.

Exactly what I needed to get in shape for softball Apr 26, 2006
Let's face it, I'm a soft lump right now and 10 weeks away I start my 3rd season of softball (co-ed work league). Last year I was fat, slow, had a mediocre to poor season AND pulled a hammy during play offs. Since then I gained 10 lbs. So I looked around the net for some tips to get in back shape for my July season. Found this great book and am loving it. It has the much needed off season and pre season programs as well as in-season. The part I like the most is it gives substitution exercises in case you can't do what they recommend (like dips for me). Has all the good tips for proper technique, chaging things up and how to train best specificaly the muscles for playing softball. I see this book being great for people in serious leagues to beer drinking big guys like myself who are looking to get back to our 25 year old shape (10 years ago) and show some of the guys I'm not just a funny benchwarmer this year. Very happy with this purchase.
