How To Look Like Tarzan, Play Like Tarzan-And Win Like TarzanHeadline:What It Takes to Stack the Strength-Deck in Your Favor "If football were played in the weight room or on the track, I could guarantee that each year, the team that won the championship would NOT be the team that won on the field of play. And that is absolutely true in every sport and every game. It's a r How To Look Like Tarzan, Play Like Tarzan-And Win Like TarzanHeadline:What It Takes to Stack the Strength-Deck in Your Favor "If football were played in the weight room or on the track, I could guarantee that each year, the team that won the championship would NOT be the team that won on the field of play. And that is absolutely true in every sport and every game. It's a rare track meet that you don't hear someone rhapsodize about training numbers and then see him or her lose badly. In football, we have a phrase for this: 'Looks like Tarzan, plays like Jane.' Pavel and my goal in writing this book is to clarify the role and impact of strength training in fitness, sports, and life. We are committed to clarity, even though at times, it's impossible to navigate the sea of conflicting information regarding the lifting sports. Pavel's experience and research provides grounding and a confidence to "Do this!" as we often joke.What can you expect from reading this book?.You will learn some history. You will discover that almost everything discussed in the fitness industry has been done before-and often better..You will reexamine the role of strength training as it applies to sport. Doing so may serve as the greatest timesaver in history!.You will find that, like a medical doctor, a strength coach must be committed above all to "Do no harm"-a pledge that's often disregarded..You will be exposed to the concept of systematic education and the need to build an athlete (or anyone!) using some kind of intelligent approach..You will be exposed to another educational system-along with a way to harness its powers-that will give you clarity into all the various fitness, health, and nutritional information being tossed at you daily..You will discover the tools for teaching an entire team to improve in a sport-and why these great tools may be of no value to you in your training!.You will be exposed to what the best in sports do in the weight

    Classic Are there two more knowledgeable trainers than Dan John and Pavel? I don't know of them. A great, quick read. Classic Are there two more knowledgeable trainers than Dan John and Pavel? I don't know of them. A great, quick read.

    This book caused me to dramatically rethink how I train my athletes. I work with endurance and ultra endurance athletes. I cut the volume of most of my athletes programs right off the bat. The results outside of the weight room were clear. The reduction of training load had no negative effects on progress in the weight room either. Improvements in sport performance were enough to inspire me to read it again for further evaluation.

    Easy Strength (the routine in the book) is an simple & efficient way to build strength without frills or confounding complexity. There seems to be a good deal of scientific support to substantiate the routines & perspectives proffered in the book, so hard to argue with the efficacy.

    Probably my personal favorite of Dan John's books. It (along with Intervention), greatly changed my training practices - for the better! Highly recommended!

    These guys know their stuff. Throughout the book, they reference powerlifting greats, other well known books, and big names in exercise physiology. The book provides a template for strength training for athletes, especially in season. They do a good job of explaining how athletes progress from general PE classes to becoming olympians, and the differences in training that go along with that progression.

The end of the book, which gives a big picture look and makes you consider why you train, going into the philosophical side of things, is probably the best part. Definitely worth reading, but you should read Power to the People by Pavel first to understand it a bit more.

    Far and above the best strength training book I have ever read. Great insights into the world of elite athletics, and the surprisingly short distance between here and there.
