Isometrics for Performance (Schmarzo, Van Dyke)

This manual was created to assist coaches, athletes, and practitioners better understand the key aspects of power development and how isometric training methods can be applied to achieve specific adaptations. This manual is not a cookie-cutter program claiming to be a “one-size fits all”, but rather it is designed to provide and teach coaches the scientific theories and concepts of how to utilize this static training to maximize desired training response. It will provide some practical examples of how to implement these methods along with some theoretical guidelines. The goal of this manual is to provide every coach the necessary tools to train as efficiently as possible to optimize performance of athletes at all levels.
