Weightlifting benefits all sports

While there are relatively few competitive Olympic lifters, the lifts they use and their components are commonly used by elite athletes in other sports to train for explosive and functional strength.

The enhanced edition of Explosive Lifting for Sports shows you how to incorporate the snatch, clean and jerk and other variations into your own sports training programme.

It will allow you to perform each lift safely with the aid of step-by-step instructions in order to develop the strength, power and speed you need for your specific sport.

Included are specific power-development programmes for 10 different power sports, including football, basketball, volleyball, track and field and racket sports.

This Enhanced Edition also grants you exclusive access to an online collection of Dartfish videos analysing the lifts.

These allow you to either view each exercise in “real time” or review and study the execution with on-screen instruction and frame by frame breakdown of key movements.

Most coaches and athletes today agree that resistance training creates stronger, faster players who are more resistant to injury.

You can improve your performance on the field or on the court using this enhanced edition of Explosive Lifting for Sports.
