I think I have probably read 100's of books on strength training and your approach in the book is so simple and the way you teach the various aspects of power, strength, and the fatigue aspect are simply outstanding. I really enjoyed being able to compare the various fatigue and volume training aspects as well. I read that section nearly a dozen times and it was very informative. You did a great job with it. --Jack Gregory
I loved the last book...it is and was a tremendous help to me with my athletes. The book is well written, no nonsense, funny, and down to business. And I will most definately purchase any strength training book written by you. The part I personally enjoyed the most was the practically of it, your first hand experience of coaching with High School athletes, not some made up of programs that 'might work' or 'think they will' as with many other books out there. --West Texas Barbell
I was on my first cruise last March. Thought I would hate it, being bored and all. I wore my coaches polo from the Seattle Seahawks the day I boarded which had my name embossed 'Coach Holland' on it. As I headed down the hall to my state room I had to step aside to let Bobby Bowden of FSU fame pass. He saw the shirt, wanted to talk shop. We ended talking four or five evenings before dinner of the cruise----nothing but football. He was there with the booster club. All they wanted to know was how many games he'd win, not the least bit interested in learning any football. I think I was an outlet for him to spill out some of that knowledge he thought he be sharing. No way to improve on that cruise! To the point... He asked me, Do I know when championships are won?" It was rhetorical. He replied it was in January. All championships are won in the weight room during the off-season. Size, speed, and strength improvements are helpful, but it is the work ethic and commitment that weld a team together happen there. He suggested it was the single best way to build a program. Maybe you should change the title to: 'Build the Best Football Team one individual at a time'. I'm committed to it, my son is and your suggestions we are going to put to work starting Monday. --Rich Holland
