This book provides the absolute foundations needed to effectively perform Olympic lifts. Though limited in its exercise variation the exercies themselves are highly effective for raw power development needed for positive translation to sport-speific movements. It is well detailed for not only informative reading, but also useful for practical learning with well detailed pictures and comprehensive literature to support the execution of the lifts. On top of that the DVD that accompanies the book is absolutley great and complements the book really well. Highly recommended for learning these demanding, but also rewarding exercises for improved sporting performance.

This is a great book for anyone looking to start lifting weights to improve their strength and power. The correct way to perform each exercise is clearly shown using photographs as well as a gradual progression through the stages to ensure the lifters safety and competance.
I would recommend this book to anyone that wants to improve their sport performance, whether it be weightlifting itself or another sport requiring explosive power.

I found this book very informative, both in terms of techniques involved in explosive lifts, and how to incorporate them into sport training. a valuable resource for athletes involved in any sport, coaches or just recreational lifters looking for a change in programme.
Easily worth the money.

Way too little info, and a total focus on the oly lifts, no power or BB or sport lifts, dissappointing, Artie Drechsler's book is vastly, vastly superior.
