Sports: Is It All B.S.? By Michael Yessis Sports and Fitness Success From 6 To 16 By Michael Yessis Women's Soccer: Using Science To Improve Speed
This book, by Dr. Michael Yessis, is a great read for everyone interested in sports and a must read for anyone who has an athlete in the family, especially if the athlete would like to develop his or her full potential. The information appeals to not only people who are interested in sports, but to the nation as a whole. It has ramifications regarding our participation in World and Olympic Games. For a nation that has more money spent on sports, more coaches, more and better equipment and facilities and more athletes than any other nation, this is a deplorable state of affairs. Even a small country such as Greece can beat our best professional basketball players. Ask yourself why Cuba can beat our best professional baseball players, our most popular national game. Sports: Is It All B.S.?, is an expose of the many myths and false information that have surrounded sports in the U.S. for many decades. One reason for the sheer amount of misinformation is that we, as a nation, do not have a scientifically-based training system, nor do we have universities or schools that specialize in development of coaches and athletes. This is why we have to travel the world over to find the best athletes for our collegiate and professional teams. There are many examples given in the book, as for example, "Great athletes are born, not made". If this were true why do we find the best athletes putting in the greatest amount of practice time? Another is "Its all in the genes". For most athletes genes are basically the same. They only play a major role on the extremes of speed and endurance, not for team athletes. Not only are there many general myths (examples of b.s.) presented but also chapters deveoted to specific sports. For example in baseball, the belief that "Youngsters should not throw a curveball" is a myth. The reasons why the examples given are myths, really b.s., are fully explained. With so much b.s. floating around, it is often easier to believe the myths rather than facts. The book shows you how you can cut through the b.s. to achieve better results on and off the field and truly develop athletic potential This book is an exceptional treatise on the training of adolescents by Dr. Michael Yessis. To get youngsters involved in fitness activities they must have a good background in sports skills and perform strength and aerobic exercises. This book shows you how you can get youngsters fit and establish the lifestyle needed to maintain their fitness and sports abilities throughout life. This is an essential book for parents, teachers, coaches and anyone who works with youngsters. Most books that deal with improving speed and quickness typically employ running drills and 'quick feet' drills, such as ladder steps, small hurdles, etc. Drills such as these have merit but without proper technique and development of the muscles as they are used in effective technique in both running and cutting actions, they are of limited value. In this book, Dr. Yessis shows you the latest in improvement of running technique and the ability to make quick cutting actions. It is the only book that contains information on analysis of women's soccer players running and cutting actions and how they can most effectively be improved. Even though this book is written mainly for women, the analyses and exercises apply equally to men. It is the first to have: Sequence pictures of the key actions of the key actions seen in cutting, and quick sprints taken from live digital video, Introduction to specialized strength, flexibility and explosive exercises (compared to general exercises as typically practiced by soccer players), Introduction to active stretching (as opposed to the common static stretching) to prevent injury and prepare you for play, Biomechanical analyses of players running and cutting described in simple, everyday language, Common faults in each skill shown and described and how they can be corrected, The latest in soccer specific nutrition, Training programs to improve your running and cutting and to a good extent, your kicking.
Explosive Basketball Training By Michael Yessis Kinesiology of Exercise By Michael Yessis Building A Better Athlete By Michael Yessis
Dr. Michael Yessis has written the most complete book on how to become a great basketball player. This is the only book that looks at technique and special strength and explosive exercises specific to each basketball skill. In this book you will learn how to jump higher and quicker, how to shoot further and with more accuracy, how to make your cuts sharper and more powerful to become even quicker in your movements and how to run faster. It is the first to have: Sequence pictures showing all of the skills in detail and photos taken from live digital video, Introduction to specialized strength, flexibility and explosive exercises (compared to general exercises as typically practiced), Introduction to active stretching (as opposed to the common static stretching), Biomechanical analyses of players jumping, running, shooting, and cutting described in simple, everyday language, Common faults in each skill shown and described and how they can be corrected, The latest in basketball specific nutrition, Integrated training programs to improve your jump height, shooting ability and accuracy, quickness in your cutting actions and first couple steps You will learn new and unique strength and explosive exercises that duplicate the actions that you must perform in jumping, shooting, cutting and running. With better technique and development of higher levels of strength and explosiveness specific to the skills, you will be able to develop your full potential This information cannot be found in any other book on the market! With more than 70 exercises accompanied by photographs and anatomical drawings, KINESIOLOGY OF EXERCISE is one of the most comprehensive books on strength training exercises currently available. Written by Dr. Michael Yessis, a recognized authority in this field, KINESIOLOGY OF EXERCISE is essential for coaches, athletes, fitness enthusiasts, physical therapists, bodybuilders -- virtually everyone interested in performing strength training exercises safely and effectively. Published in 1992, this book has yet to be equaled regarding its content and detail. It still maintains its position as being the #1 reference book for learning everything about the most commonly used strength exercises, both machine and free weight exercises. Also contained is information on how to get started and to make progress in your strength training program. In contains detailed muscle analyses of the movements which together with the descriptions are written in a simple, easy to understand manner. Each exercise is accompanied with before and after pictures together with a picture of the muscle involved and its location. The book is unique in that it describes each exercise in relation to the joints that are involved rather than simply body area which is often misleading. By developing the muscles by their joint actions, you get a better appreciation and understanding on how the muscle functions and its role in the body. This just released book by Dr. Yessis is the most comprehensive sports training book ever written on what it takes to develop an athlete. It covers technique of the basic skills, the physical qualities needed for sports in general, for specific sports, and how they should be developed. In addition, specific recommendations on nutrition (that have never before been presented to athletes) are given in easy to understand terms. There is also a chapter on the role of vision and vision training. The book is a culmination of over 50 years of working with and teaching athletes how to develop their full potential and be successful in their chosen sport. It is unmatched in not only the book's scope, but in the detail given to each of the factors. Many of the concepts presented are state-of-the-art and have been proven in practice.

The Triphasic Tactical Training Manual was written with the explicit intent to deliver a systematic and scientifically founded approach in training methodology for athletes whose preparation does not result in wins and losses, world records, or gold medals. The idea behind the Triphasic Tactical Training Manual was originated from the individual needs of the tactical athlete and all those who put their lives at risk simply by going to work each day.


The authors of this manual have broken down the needs of every tactical athlete into six physical qualities. In order to display the physical proficiency required by the tactical athlete, each of these six qualities must be trained appropriately. What separates this training program from others is that it allows tactical athletes to continue to train with their desired methods while offering guidelines that increase the likelihood of the user to achieve optimal level responses to training and see improvements in performance.


The Weekly Sequencing Model was developed by multiple strength coaches along with an elite level military training professional for operators who based the protocol originally on The Triphasic Training System while also considering the specific needs of the tactical athlete. Programs currently being used for military training are not equipping these specialized tactical athletes appropriately, which leads to a disproportionate training of the six physical qualities necessary for optimal performance.


It was this simple point that led to the creation of The Weekly Sequencing Model. This manual is a collaboration between combat veterans who have said “we can do this better” and the training professionals who said, “we can help.” Experience has teamed up with science to present this complete, systematic training program for the tactical athlete. The Weekly Sequencing model isn’t just exercising; it is training, specifically and systematically for the tactical athlete.


This book is for the tactical athlete and those that dedicate their lives to maintaining high-performance levels to maintain the freedoms of others. In the tactical arena, less than ideal performance can have grave consequences. One step too slow, one moment too long, and the defeated does not receive a silver medal and a warm handshake.

When Cal and I first started to talk about putting a nutrition manual together, we had to figure out what’s most important to the audience. My first thought was to put together a comprehensive manual that would prove to be an encyclopedia on youth nutrition. Cal, who is actually a father of 2 very active kids, said this was not what parents would want or need. So, realizing how my initial idea was going to be utterly useless to my audience we decided to go with the most actionable items like, what to eat for breakfast and why, or how to eat pretty well when you’re traveling across the country to a big time lacrosse, hockey, baseball, etc. tournament. We simply focus on what you need to know, why the information is useful, and most of all how to apply this information day in and day out to help your kids stay healthy, perform on the field, and best of all be better students in the classroom.

We set out to help you answer a variety of questions that you have about how best to help your young athlete perform at the highest level possible, whether in the classroom, during practice, or during a game. In each section you’ll find the essential knowledge needed to put the right foods on the table at the right time to help them achieve their fullest potential. Take the information found in this book and apply the information consistently and you will be amazed at the results.

The purpose of this manual is to prepare the athlete for their sport by performing high-velocity, sport-specific movements. These exercises, and the way in which they are performed, are designed to utilize the enhanced qualities of dynamic movement. These methods are the result of years of attempting to create an all-encompassing, methodical approach to physical training intended to prepare an athlete for the rigors of sport. In this text, you will be provided with example programs, mesocycles, and macrocycles so that you may not only implement the system but understand the how and the why as well. This manual was created solely to share these methods and to inspire questions within the coaching community so that we may continue developing as professionals for the betterment of our athletes.

A classic misconception is that a 1RM test performed at the end of the off-season is optimal for preparing an athlete for competition. By definition, and what we know about the Force-Velocity Curve, the 1RM requires the greatest demand for force to overcome the resistance but is the slowest movement the athlete will perform. This approach is phenomenal for someone who can afford to spend ample amounts of time developing the necessary force to complete a movement. In reality, an athlete may only have a fraction of a second! So, what’s really going on then? Truthfully, although the athlete is generating a tremendous amount of force, the rate at which it’s being developed isn’t going to transfer to their sport. Well, if it’s not going to transfer to their sport, then why is it still being used at the measuring tool to determine whether an athlete is ready for their season? Let me very clear about something, a 1RM number, whether tested or estimated, is necessary in a training plan to understand the level of strength the athlete possesses and to base their training percentages off of. Otherwise, you’re shooting in the dark and not only is that dangerous, it’s sub optimal.

This book is a practical manual rather than theoretical. It is approximately 128 pages. The main goal of this book is to integrate psychological skills training (PST) with other training processes of the athletic preparation program; several means of achieving this goal in numerous sport types are described. Additionally, we wish to create a relevant body of knowledge for sport psychologists, coaches, athletes, physical education students, and scientists.
Few books on jumping cover jumping the topic from the biomechanical perspective it truly deserves. There are literally hundreds of methods for athletes to go about increasing their vertical jump, ranging from plyometrics, to strength training, to depth jumps to dynamic mobility. The question still remains, how do each of these methods actually help an athlete jump higher? What do they do to improve an athlete’s jumping technique and power? What is the optimal jumping technique in the context of team sport, and not just track and field?
Vertical Foundations is the first book to give the reader the most intimate knowledge available for standing and running jumps off of one or two feet, expert technique, and strength training implications for each piece of standing and running vertical leaps. It covers those technical points and concepts, ignored by many others, that can help athletes to get those valuable vertical inches they deserve in their training!
The world of track and field has given us plenty of information on the technical development and training of single leg jumpers, but not within the aspect of team sport, and there is a serious lack of in depth information on the biomechanics and training of the running double leg jump. Vertical Foundations is here to bridge that gap. You’ll learn every relevant piece of technical vertical information that exists through the following book chapters:
Chapter 1: Success factors of the explosive vertical athlete
Chapter 2: The nervous system, skill acquisition, and motor learning
Chapter 3: Muscle phases, actions, and roles in jumping
Chapter 4: Principles of applying instruction in jump technique
Chapter 5: Biomechanical and sequential considerations of jumping
Chapter 6: Individual training differences: speed vs. force dominant athletes
Chapter 7: Standing vertical jump biomechanics
Chapter 8: Running jump principles and biomechanics
Chapter 9: Running double leg jumping technique and training concepts
Chapter 10: Running single leg jumping technique and training concepts
Chapter 11: Measuring vertical jump skill in the laboratory
Chapter 12: Sample training programs for vertical jump athletes
Whether you are a strength coach, track coach, basketball coach, volleyball coach, personal trainer, dedicated athlete, or just interested in what makes athletes jump higher, this book is for you.

Triphasic Training is the pinnacle of sports performance training. That’s not hype. Cal Dietz, strength coach at the University of Minnesota, has the results to back up this claim – a Hobey Baker Award winner, two Big Ten Athletes of the Year, over 400 All-Americans, 30 Big Ten/WCHA championship teams, 7 NCAA National Team Champions, and 14 teams that finished in the top four in the nation.

Over the past decade, Coach Dietz has worked with thousands of collegiate and professional athletes, incorporating the latest scientific research into developing his Triphasic Training method. His approach breaks down athletic movements into their three components -- eccentric, isometric, and concentric -- allowing for the continuous development of athletes, maximizing their strength, speed, and power.

In this easy-to-understand book, Coach Dietz has teamed up with exercise physiologist, Ben Peterson, to explain the physiological foundations of Triphasic Training and how they can be applied to training, making athletes bigger, stronger and faster than ever before. The authors give examples of complete programs, as well as examples of how to incorporate the Triphasic method into existing programs, with descriptions on adapting it to virtually any scenario.

Triphasic Training book : A Systematic Approach to Elite Speed and Explosive Strength Performance WHAT WE NEED IS SPEED: SCIENTIFIC PRACTICE OF GETTING FAST Secrets of Russian Sports Fitness and Training By Michael Yessis
Look inside Triphasic Training!

Triphasic Training is the pinnacle of sports performance training. That’s not hype. Cal Dietz, strength coach at the University of Minnesota, has the results to back up this claim – a Hobey Baker Award winner, two Big Ten Athletes of the Year, over 400 All-Americans, 28 Big Ten/WCHA championship teams, 7 NCAA National Team Champions, and 14 teams that finished in the top four in the nation.

Over the past decade, Coach Dietz has worked with thousands of collegiate and professional athletes, incorporating the latest scientific research into developing his Triphasic Training method. His approach breaks down athletic movements into their three components -- eccentric, isometric, and concentric -- allowing for the continuous development of athletes, maximizing their strength, speed, and power.

In this easy-to-understand book, Coach Dietz has teamed up with exercise physiologist, Ben Peterson, to explain the physiological foundations of Triphasic Training and how they can be applied to training, making athletes bigger, stronger and faster than ever before. The authors give examples of complete programs, as well as examples of how to incorporate the Triphasic method into existing programs, with descriptions on adapting it to virtually any scenario.

The digital edition of this book contains over 3,000 hyperlinks to video clips that demonstrate how to properly perform every exercise, as well as six hours of video lectures by Coach Dietz from his national speaking tour. In this book, these hyperlinks are indicated by words or phrases that are underlined. In order for you to take advantage of these features, included in the book is a web link to a downloadable PDF that contains the hyperlinks and videos from the original digital book.

Block Periodization. by sport science expert Vladimir Issurin, is an advanced text designed for high-level coaches working with elite athletes. The basis of contemporary training was founded several decades ago when scientific knowledge was far from complete and athletes' workloads, results, and demands were much lower then they are currently. At that time the traditional training periodization, as a division of the whole seasonal program into smaller periods and training units, was proposed and elucidated. This traditional periodization was republished many times and became a universal and monopolistic approach to training planning and analysis.
Transfer of Training is an advanced text designed for high-level coaches working with elite athletes. Dr. Anatoly Bondarchuk is one of the world's foremost experts on the training and technical instruction of elite track and field throwers. A former world record hammer thrower himself, Dr. Bondarchuk developed and coached the USSR National Throws Team from 1976 to 1992. During that span of time, he produced many World and Olympic Champions in the hammer, discus, and shot put events, eclipsing as many as 12 World Records. His athletes also won all of the medals in the hammer event in four straight non-boycotted Olympic Games. Most recently, he has been coaching for national teams in Portugal and Kuwait. In addition to his success as an athlete and coach, Dr. Bondarchuk has also authored 11 books and 195 articles on the training and development of elite track and field throwers. His persistent and thorough research into technique, training, and high performance has led to his methods being adopted by many of the world's most successful athletes and programs. This outstanding book, as translated by Dr. Michael Yessis, is considered to be one of the finest and most authoritative texts on the transfer of training to competitive performance.
