Thanks to Joel Jamieson you now can download your free copy of “Fundamentals of Sports Training” by L. Matveyev (pdf) which sells for $200 to $400 on Amazon. Certainly a nice addition to the library.
“Today, I’d like to pass along this invaluable piece of historic training work along to those who will value the information and take the time to read it and apply it. I’ve read just about every major book on the subject, those worth reading anyway, and this one is literally the original. Yes, this really is the first book ever written on the concept of periodization.”
