Designed for high school and college athletes and coaches, the program places emphasis on body control, balance exercises, and hip strengthening, combined with more traditional workout regimens, to improve performance while guarding against injury. The program is based on an evaluation system that helps determine what an athlete's physical limitations are and how he or she should proceed through the program's levels. Co-author Tyson is a physical therapist and trainer associated with Carolinas Physical Therapy Network, and Cook is manager of sports performance at the Epicenter Sports Performance Center in North Carolina. The guide has no index. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Jumpmetrics is the complete program that will give you an edge in any sport involving quick first steps, cuts, and especially jumps.
Jumpmetrics contains a series of functional tests that will measure your ability to move and react and help you determine the best starting point for your training in the programs presented. The detailed programs are broken into three levels. At each level, you'll find 12- to 16-week programs to boost you to new heights of performance.
By combining traditional strength and plyometric exercises with postural, balance, and stabilization training, Jumpmetrics conditions not only the prime movers but also the stabilizing muscles and antagonists - helping you move more efficiently while reducing your risk of knee injury. You'll also learn about the proper joint position during high-speed loaded movements so that you develop better body control.
