Reviews - What do customers think about Ultimate Guide to Weight Training for Rugby (Ultimate Guide to Weight Training...)?
Simple Dec 12, 2007
this is a real meat and potatoes book, which i think is a good thing. the worst thing about reading books about excersise is hearing about stuff that you dont need to know. this book is for people who have the time and desire to go to the gym at least 4 times a week. no half-hearted efforts here. if you follow the book's schedule YOU WILL MAKE GAINS. this i think is the key to this books effectiveness. its not the lifts that he chooses or the number of sets/reps persay- if you have been lifting for sometime, most of the concepts will be pretty commen sense. he also leaves things open for you so your lifting sessions dont get stale. I think one word sums this book up...simplicity. everything is done for you, you just need to have to drive to do it!
extremely satisfied! Awesome workouts and advice!! Oct 23, 2007
this book is very useful and is great when needing some extra info or just alternatives. i'm following the workouts in the book and am very pleased with how they translate to the field as well as just my overall health, fitness, and endurance.
Excellent Program Guide Jan 10, 2007
I have rarely seen such detail in such a small space. Gets right to the point with easy-to-follow concepts, instructions, and pictures. Online resources are also helpful.
New Edition is Way Better Jan 23, 2006
I'm a multi sport athlete who trains all year round regardless of what sport I play. I bought a few of these Ultimate Guide to Weight Training books, and they definitely helped me train specifically for the different sports that I play. Then about a year later I received an email from this site that there was a new edition out. These upgraded editions are even better than the originals, with more articles and a lot more sport-specific information. I would definitely recommend this series to anyone who plays a lot of sports or wants to specifically focus on training for one sport in particular.
very informative Oct 22, 2005
The illustrations are excellent. This book offers all the help you need to get started in your training for rugby. It even provides charts so you can keep a record of your progress.
