Editorial Reviews:

First successfully used in Eastern Europe, plyometrics is now generally accepted in the United States as a key to the training of successful championship athletes. More recently it has become a part of the general public's exercise regimen.

Power requires an integrated program to develop its two complementary components, strength and speed. While weight training develops strength, plyometrics develops the explosiveness called speed. This book describes Plyometric exercises designed for the upper extremities, trunk, and lower extremities. It also includes plyometric exercises for wheelchair athletes.

Plyometrics conditions the body through dynamic, resistance exercises. By using a medicine ball to create the necessary resistance for these exercises, you can experience the entire range of motion which resembles that of your sport. These sport-specific exercises are not only more efficient in developing the power you desire, but more interesting, more challenging, and more motivating.

Summary: Good resource
Comment: Dr Chu is an expert on the subject of plyometrics. This is a great place to start if your looking for medicine ball work. Don't expect anything too complicated or highly advanced though there are some gems in here that have challenged some serious athletes. It probably would have benefited from real models rather than the line drawn illustrations though this is a minor concern and anyone with a modicum of exercise experience should have no trouble in understanding the routines. For the money, well worth it.

Summary: Dopey
Comment: The title of this book is extremely misleading.
It's packed full of stupid things like "medicine ball biceps curls," "triceps extensions," "good mornings," etc... These are not plyometric exercises! Basically it's an excuse to use a medicine ball for classic weight lifting moves.

Combined with this are some very basic throwing moves, of which I was hoping for more of.

The drawings are of course crude stick figures, and the directions are weak.

I'm returning this book.

A little imagination will go a longer ways than this book.

Summary: Basic yet effective
Comment: This book reads like a blue print for medicine ball works as it pertains to developing speed and strength. The exercises presented are the foundation of such work and hence are valuable to the beginner. Those looking for more advanced exercises and techniques will probably be disappointed. Conclusion: great for the beginner.
