Jumping Into Plyometrics is an excellent book for coaches, athletes, and students who want to increase their knowledge of how to safely and effectively become faster and more explosive. There is not a book on the market that is more comprehensive or up-to-date with the current research than Jumping Into Plyometrics. I highly recommend it!”

It provides outstanding illustrations and explanation of activities. I used his methods before and will continue to do so.”
