5.0 out of 5 stars
Dated but still one of the best, 27 July 2006
Colgon really should update this text, it was my bible as an athlete during late 90's and to be honest even then it was dated. Also some of his views on certain things (creatine comes to mind) have been disproved somewhat.
However, other than that (and the guys promotion of a certain brand) it actually DELIVERS THE GOODS. This book can... I repeat can... really turn your performance from good to excellent.
Returning to competitive rowing (at 42) might sound crazy. However my first thought was... Colgon... I can do it.. but I need the best.. and he delivers that.
My advice to him is to update this book and it would be a bestseller amongst athletes, who already consider this one of the finest works on the market. Its a mystery why he can't spend a few weeks just redoing some of the outdated stuff and give us some more wisdom.
