"I'm an amateur athlete and having reached a sort of plateau in my performance I wanted something to give me an edge to break into the next level, and with Peak Performance I have found all the answers I was looking for!" - Malcolm Attard, Peak Performance Gold Member

Dear future Peak Performance member,

This is not only your exclusive invitation to become a fully-fledged Gold Member of Peak Performance but an offer to claim a free special report that will transform your levels of strength and power - without bulking you up unnecessarily.

What's more, I'm also offering those of you who respond today the chance to gain access to an amazing starter package worth well over $153.

Before I tell you about all the benefits of Peak Performance Gold Membership, let me fill you in a little on my new report.

I've called it 'The Top 15 Resistance Exercises for Optimal Strength, Speed and Endurance' This report doesn't need an elaborate name. It tells it like it is. And it's good. Full stop.

Serious athletes like you don't need reminding of the importance of integrating resistance training into their year-round conditioning regimes. They know there's no quicker way to significantly boost their levels of strength, speed - and even their endurance.

When it comes to resistance training, what athletes like you need is reliable, unbiased and up-to-date information - particularly on the central issue (the issue that so many of you email in to us about) of how you increase strength and power without adding unnecessary bulk, a subject on which it's rare to find independent, evidence-based advice.

In this report you will find 15 revolutionary, fully illustrated exercises that will achieve exactly what you want. Skyrocketed performance without masses of muscle.

There's nothing more damaging for an athlete than getting their resistance training sessions wrong. Not can only it lead to a dramatic deterioration in performance, it can also make you more susceptible to injury.

And I'm pleased to say that this latest addition to Peak Performance's library of special reports is a safe guide for serious competitors. Don't forget, this report is available completely FREE to you today. No strings attached. No cost.

This is a rare opportunity, being offered for a limited time, to assess the latest exercises in the field of resistance training for yourself, and decide how best to integrate them into your training and conditioning.

Want an example? Read on. Or, take me up on my offer of gold membership to Peak Performance with this amazing new special report, NOW, click here.

Remember, you also get a starter package worth over $153 and we are only asking for a nominal payment of $1.97 (Special Summer 2010 price) to cover our administration.

Resistance Exercise 1 of 15: The Depth Jump

This is just one example of the brilliant exercises you can expect to find in this new special report. The other 14 will be immediately available to you when you take up full membership

Main muscles involved - quadriceps (thigh), hamstrings, glutes (buttocks), calf muscles

Joint motion - ankle extension, knee extension, hip extension

Sports applicability - Running (sprinting, middle and long distances), all running and jumping based sports such as tennis, football, basketball and high jump etc.

MUSCULAR ACTION

The depth jump is a 'plyometric exercise'. Plyometric exercises work on the principle that a concentric muscular contraction is much stronger if it immediately follows an eccentric contraction of the same muscle. (Eccentric muscular action occurs when a muscle lengthens under load - eg the lowering phase of a biceps curl. Concentric muscular contraction occurs when a muscle shortens under load.)

The effect of a plyometric exercise is a bit like stretching out a coiled spring to its fullest extent (the eccentric contraction), then letting it go (the concentric contraction); large amounts of energy are released in a split second as the spring recoils.

CONDITIONING BENEFITS

  • General - The depth jump provides a great base of dynamic power for the majority of sports. This is because it closely matches the sport specific speeds of movement and muscular action. Most standard weight training lifts, even when performed as quickly as possible, take 0.5 - 0.7 seconds to complete, whereas during a depth jump your feet may only be in contact with the ground between 0.2 and 0.3 seconds.
  • Sport specific - Although the basic depth jump is very sports specific in itself, it can be made even more so by adaptation and variation (more later).

When Andrew first took up running, there was very little in the way of helpful fitness information. But now, hoards of athletes, coaches, injury specialists, sports teams, organisations and more can turn to Andrew and his expert team for the nuggets of knowledge that will translate into gains in the competitive arena.

His scientific background and knowledge - acquired through study, teaching and writing - has enabled him to forge contacts with the world's leading sports science researchers.
