i just realized my college library has tons of books dealing with track,weight training and periodation.in an effort to learn and exapnad our horizons lets start a thread of books a track athlete/coach must read…..or your favorite books dealing with sprints/strength training….
heres mine so far… remember i am young and have not read many books..
1)”speedtrap” charlie francis”
2)training for speed “charlie francis”
3)chapters 3 and 4 in the USA coaching manual.. chapter 3 100 200 meters by curtis frye and chapter 4 400 meters by clyde hart
i just took out “peaking when it counts” by william freeman … anyone ever read this? i was going to take out one of Bompas books but there are all 400 plus pages so i thought maybee freemans 100 page book will some it up pretty well since most of his sources are from tudor bompas books? is there any of Bompas books that are must reads tho? i was thinking maybee his strength training book?
