My husband has motivation to workout everyday and requested a book for Christmas that would help him get faster running and do the right kind of weights before a race and when he is not in the race mode and this book was an answer to his prayers because it has all the right formulas for what he was looking for. EXCELLENT BOOK!!!
New Edition is Way Better Jan 22, 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 useful Oct 28, 2003
After i finished reading this book, i put it in the front of my collection of running books. This is the most functional and practical book i have ever seen on strength training for runners. the tips on how to weight train for muscular endurance are priceless as i'm beginning to see with my longer distances and lower times. this book has earned my recommendation.
Exactly what I needed Oct 26, 2003
After reading through this book, it is clear that it is just what I needed. While running, I usually begin to experience fatigue in my muscles as opposed to my lungs. This book has very good strategies and tips on how to improve muscular endurance- which is exactly what runners need. My leg muscles as well as my upper body muscles have become more durable and I'm able to last much longer without getting tired. The programs in the front of the book provide a tremendous starting point for my weight training. This is a guide, that I recommend to all runners.
