So many dumb exercises, so many daffy weight machines, so many useless gadgets litter gyms that I visit all over the world, it boils my blood. When I began working with athletes over a quarter century ago, men still swung Indian clubs and stretched steel springs in pretense at resistance training. And women stood in vibrating belts or pressed beefy booties on revolving wooden rollers, vainly believing they would shake or pummel off their fat. Today it's isolation weight machines, with restrictive pads and straps and other gizmos that ensure only a particular muscle gets exercised. Exerting that muscle's new found strength in any free movement of sport virtually guarantees injury to untrained stabilizers and connective tissues. Then there's the stair steppers and suchlike, designed to soothe egos more than take off bodyfat, by moving the ankles about 3 1/2 inches. None of that nonsense insults you here. The Power Program is the latest update of the training system used by the Colgan Institute to increase the power of athletes at all levels, from weekend warriors to Olympic medallists, in the whole alphabet of sport. From archery, basketball and boxing, through skiing, track and field, and tennis, to America's Cup yachting, this program provides a system of weight training that fits with human physiology and the science of strength and speed development. It gives you all you need to rebuild yourself as a body of power. As we move into the new millennium, the value of the correct weight training is finally becoming apparent, not only to athletes but to everyone who wants a powerful, disease-resistant body. Dr Worthy of the American College of Sports Medicine put it best: "Done correctly, weight training is the most efficient, effective, and safest form of exercise there is, and it won't be long before people realize it." In choosing this book you are well on your way....
