Soccer Fitness for Juniors - Resitance Training with Body Weight, Medicine Balls and Sand Bags
Soccer Fitness for Juniors - Resitance Training with Body Weight, Medicine Balls and Sand Bags
Price: £0.99

2.0 out of 5 stars Nothing of any great interest, 21 Dec. 2014
Let me start by saying this was very cheap, but equally, it's very short.
I guess I was expecting an insight of some kind on training younger kids for football. There's nothing here I couldn't have got elsewhere for free.


Hands of Stone: The Life and Legend of Roberto Duran
Hands of Stone: The Life and Legend of Roberto Duran
Price: £2.99

4.0 out of 5 stars A fair and honest account of The King of Macho, 31 Oct. 2014
There's very little not to like here. The author has clearly made some serious effort to locate and interview those that were part of Duran's life.
The result is an interesting and well written book about one of boxing's true greats.


Coppi: Inside the Legend of the Campionissimo (Rouleur)
Coppi: Inside the Legend of the Campionissimo (Rouleur)
by Herbie Sykes
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £20.40

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Book, 21 Jun. 2014
I cannot recommend this book enough. The photography and layout are superb.
Coppi was never one of the cyclists I was particularly interested in before this book. I was lucky enough to buy it as a return for only £7.50!
Not sure I would pay full price.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Value, 21 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: TWF 3mm Socks (Sports)
Can't argue on price. They are easily as good as alternatives at twice the price. Easily cheap enough to replace each year.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great value, but be warned, soft it isn't!!, 3 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you want a full size roller, and you are nails enough, this is for you.It is nowhere near as soft as the 'Reebok' ones you usually get in the gym, so for things like the iliotibial band, or sensitive spots, be prepared to grimmace.This thing is very much on the firm side when it comes to rollers. This may be just what you want...or not.


More Mile California Compression Socks Black
More Mile California Compression Socks Black
Offered by Sporty Sports Ltd
Price: £4.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Great Price, compression good.Slippery material, 3 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These easily perform as well as silly money compression socks. Only gripe is the material they are made of is super durable, but they slide around in your trainer. It makes your foot slide in the shoe, which can of course cause blisters. The other thing it can do(and did for me) was make running off road a bit of a concern. My feet felt like they were moving, and I was constantly worried about turning my ankle.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good starting point for those looking improve sailing fitness, 9 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This isn't a comprehensive slab on physical or mental fitness for sailing. It is an easy to read and enjoyable starting point however. I paid peanuts for it, and would probably not have shelled out full price. Well worth a read though. Especially if you have perhaps not done much physical training before, or (like me) you are intrigued about adapting your exercise programme to specialise a little towards sailing.
