As a physical therapist, coach, and certified strength and conditioning specialist, Dr. Aaron Horschig began to notice the same patterns in athletes over and over. Many of them seemed to pushed themselves as athletes in the same ways they push themselves out in the real world. Living in a performance-based society, Dr. Horschig saw many athletes who seemed to not only want to be bigger and stronger but to get there faster. This mentality ultimately led to injuries and setbacks, preventing athletes from reaching their full potential. Now, after developing unique and easy-to-use techniques on how to train and move well, Dr. Horschig shares his invaluable insights with readers in The Squat Bible: The Ultimate Guide to Mastering the Squat and Finding Your True Strength. This detailed plan enables you to unearth the various weak spots within your body-the areas that leave you in pain and hinder your ability to perform-and completely change your approach to athleticism. Discover new strength, new power, and astounding potential you never knew you possessed. As the founder of SquatUniversity.com, Dr. Horschig knows that when you transform the way you work out, you transform your body-and your life.

Off The Floor is the most comprehensive deadlift manual ever written, which will give you the tools and knowledge to finally put pounds on your deadlift and pack muscle mass on your body. Off The Floor was written by consummate deadlift coaching professional and world record holder David Dellanave to be the ultimate guide to the ultimate strength builder, the deadlift. In addition to being a comprehensive manual on the king of all lifts, Off The Floor includes several deadlift strength programs, including the renowned Off The Floor program. Here are some of the secrets revealed in the program: How the common mantra of "core training" is costing you pounds and risking your back health. What type of deadlift will widen your back, blow up your traps, and give you erectors like tree trunks. Not doing these lesser-known variations is easily costing you 25 to 50 pounds on your best deadlift. The truth about lifting straps - and it's probably not what you expect it to be. Deadlifting for high volumes - the piece you're missing. The one cheap thing you should add to your gym bag to nearly instantly give you jacked forearms. The deadlift variation you least expect is the one most likely to help your back pain. The weird-looking deadlift that might be exactly what you need to unlock greater strength. The key to perfect form that multiple world champion and freak of nature Dimitry Klokov knows, and you think is wrong. Why you must change your form when you progress from beginner to a more advanced deadlifter. How to deadlift more often - and put on more muscle - than you ever thought possible. The manual is as comprehensive as they come, and includes information on: Biofeedback Training 101: Everything you need to know to start implementing Biofeedback Training for yourself. You're going to learn how to use the most advanced piece of training technology on the planet to tell you how to train smarter. Hint: it's not a Tendo, an OmegaWave, or an iPhone with a gadget attached to it. Deadlift Training Guide: Lessons I've learned on my quest to become a human crane - and coaching hundreds of people along the way. Beginner Section: New to deadlifting or strength training in general? This section will get you off on the right foot, so you DON'T make the mistakes I made when I was new. Deadlift Exercise Library: Every critical deadlift variation you need to know. Think the deadlift is as simple as conventional or Romanian? Think again. These variants of the deadlift are the key to unlocking faster gains and unlimited progress. The Off The Floor Program: I'm going to be honest, in the end I want you to use Biofeedback Training to become the master of your own programming, but before you're ready to do that you need a stopgap. The Off The Floor program is going to outline exactly how to implement all the concepts I lay out in the book for maximum results. Accessory Exercise Library: I would sign up for a program that involved nothing but deadlifting, but unfortunately you'd be shortchanging your results. Carefully chosen accessory lifts will round out your strength and speed up your deadlift progress. Special Topics Section: Want to know how to destroy the competition at your first (or next) meet? Have a nagging weak spot in your pull? Curious about the core controversy? This section will finally answer these questions for you once and for all.

In the world of strength and conditioning, learning how to move others-not just physically, but also psychologically and emotionally-is paramount to getting the most out of them. People are the ultimate performance variable, and understanding how to effectively blend knowledge of proper training with the nuances of human behavior is integral to helping athletes achieve their ultimate goals. Unfortunately, while much attention has been given to the science of physical training, little attention has been given to the science of communication. Conscious Coaching: The Art and Science of Building Buy-In bridges this gap. Readers learn the foundational principles of improving relationships, enhancing engagement, and gaining the trust of athletes through targeted communication. And, every bit as important, readers also learn concrete strategies to apply these principles in day-to-day coaching situations they will inevitably encounter. The result is a game-changing book that sets the stage for coaches to create a culture of success not only within sport, but also beyond. Conscious Coaching is a movement and its time has come.

From the author of what has been called the best book on Olympic weightlifting, Olympic Weightlifting: A Complete Guide for Athletes & Coaches, comes Olympic Weightlifting for Sports. This book focuses on athletes and coaches outside of the competitive weightlifting world to present a method of teaching the Olympic lifts and their variants simply, safely and effectively to all types of athletes. Also includes information on program design and flexibility training to prepare athletes to perform the lifts. "Coach Everett's Olympic Weightlifting for Sports is a extraordinary product for any sport coach s library. As a proponent of the power clean and its variations for performance training, I found this book to be an outstanding reference for teaching methodology for the Olympic Movements. Coach Everett provides user-friendly terminology for the explanations of these movements. This book is a must-have for any coach who implements Olympic lifts in their program. Joe Kenn, Head Strength and Conditioning Coach, Carolina Panthers "Coaches, make room on your bookshelf for Greg Everett's Olympic Weightlifting for Sports. Thorough, well written, well organized, and full of information & pictures to help make each point understandable. This will help make you a better coach, and in turn help improve your athletes potential to succeed. I'm excited for Greg and excited to put the information to use! Jim Malone, Head Strength & Conditioning Coach, San Diego Padres This is, by far, the most detailed and thorough book about Olympic weightlifting technique. Greg Everett has done an excellent job in presenting and organizing the material in this book. The photos are great. I strongly recommend that any strength coach or sports performance coach own this book if he/she is teaching deep squatting, snatch and clean pulls, and Olympic style lifts. It is well worth the money spent. Ethan Reeve, Strength & Conditioning Coordinator, Wake Forest University "Olympic Weightlifting for Sports is another outstanding book by Greg Everett that breaks down everything you need to know about the specifics of Olympic weightlifting. I really like the way Greg breaks down the progressions for each movement. I've always been a big believer in keeping things simple and specific for both coaches and athletes. This is a must-have for anyone trying to understand all aspects of Olympic lifting. All athletes need to understand why they are training a certain way. This book explicitly covers that for Olympic lifting." Jeff Dillman, Director of Strength & Conditioning, University of Florida This book is a great addition to any strength & conditioning coach s library. It gives very basic and descriptive instruction that does not complicate what a strength & conditioning coach has to teach and coach on a daily basis regarding Olympic style lifts. Kevin Yoxall, Head Strength & Conditioning Coach, Auburn University Greg Everett is my go-to resource when it comes to the Olympic lifts. Whether it s coaching, program design, or even addressing common limiting factors like flexibility, Olympic Weightlifting for Sports leaves no stone unturned. Whether you re a young coach learning the ropes or a grizzled veteran, this book is an amazing resource.
