Intelligent Strength Training for Motivated Athletes
You are a motivated athlete and you're determined to get better and dominate your sport. You're looking for all the strength and conditioning information you can find to make you bigger, stronger and faster. You're tired of the tricks, gimmicks, gadgets and exercise fads and silly metabolic conditioning workouts that only leave you depleted and lacking energy. You want real results that dominate the competition. You realize that harder does not necessarily mean better. You want the most effective training system possible. You realize that optimal results are far more important than maximum intensity. You want to become a better athlete, trainer or coach, not just better at exercising. You want to know the drills that produce the skills. You want to know the most effective training that actually makes you a better athlete, not just a pretender. You want the kind of training that is going to make you perform better on your chosen stage, not get you hurt in the gym.
