Probably the oldest sport of humankind, sprinting benefits from a wealth of scientific and experiential information. Appropriate for runners of all levels of ability, this book provides the reader with techniques to reach the next level in their sprinting development. Line drawings illustrate the techniques discussed.

Throughout, the author concentrates on practical methods to improve the individual runner's performance, with remarkably detailed information on everything from warming up to the post-race routine, including the start, stride, how the foot meets the track, the arm/leg connection, angle of lean through the curve, and more.


Not only are modern athletes larger and more muscular than their predecessors, but they also move with a swiftness and power never seen before. Training for Speed, Agility, and Quickness is the workout guide and DVD package you need in order to perform a step ahead of the competition.

What elevates this book to become the ultimate training resource is the bonus DVD, ideal for both athletes and coaches. It allows you to see exactly how to perform key tests and execute the best and most complex drills from the book.


Outside of professional sports, the quality of athletic training is dangerously inconsistent. Most athletes who compete on school teams, in community sports programs or just on their own do not receive the training needed to improve their performance and prevent serious game-ending injuries.

Sports Training: The Complete Guide is the definitive, practical resource and guidebook for competitors, coaches and trainers. It provides the building blocks for athletic training that will maximize speed, endurance and power. John Shepherd demystifies sports science for readers by starting with the basics and progressing to a specific training plan that every athlete needs. Training theory is explained in simple, easy-to-understand terms before modern training methods and techniques are tackled.
