This book only offers a general training guidance in general for all sports. If you need a specific sport you need to purchase the specific book related to the sport you need. I will not recommend it to a person that needs specificity training for a related sport. One person found this helpful. This book contains basic weight training exercises that can be applied to a variety of sports that involve the use of a variety of muscle groups. Great book for beginners or even advanced athletes looking to expand their fitness to new heights.
This book provides a good background on understanding the different ways to train and what can come from cross training. I feel it could benefit some but personally not myself. Real basic stuff with much a beginner would learn. This book is nothing special in my opinion. I bought it expecting a discussion of how weight training can benefit gymnastics training.
Ultimate Guide to Weight Training for Gymnastics : 2nd Edition
Unfortunately all I got was a general discussion of how to lift weights. There was little on programming, a decent discussion on periodization, and a good discussion of general lifting exercises There's nothing special here. It gives a decent, but not great, overview of how to lift for general conditioning and strength training. Basic questions such as: How to incorporate weight training with gymnastic training What lifts will help you power through sticking points in which gymnastic techniques No discussion of appropriate volume.
One of the biggest problems this book has is it recommends a complete weightlifting regimen. You don't need that if you're training for gymnastics already. You get a lot of strength and explosive work through normal training.
Adding a compelte lifting routine on top of that is a sure route to over-training. I give this three stars because it is a good introductory weight lifting text. It just has nothing special for gymnasts. Ordered this on my Kindle.

Easy download of course. I think this book is good for the entry level weight training athlete, but not for someone with a few years behind them. See all 12 reviews. Most recent customer reviews.
