"Harvey Newton's book Explosive Lifting for Sports provides the best text and pictures from which to learn weightlifting that I have seen. I wish I had such a reference when I was learning.

His DVD of the same name brings the book to life! You really can get a feel for the speed and power needed to execute a successful lift.

As a coach, I recommend Explosive Lifting for Sports be included in your library as a reference for yourself and athletes to assist with teaching proper technique for the lifts.

From my role as an older, experienced coach and athlete, a review of Harvey's materials has reminded me that basics easily became buried and forgotten. Explosive Lifting for Sports has brought this forward so I can apply them to my novice, as well as accomplished, athletes.

You gotta have this, plain and simple."

"Harvey Newton’s book and DVD, Explosive Lifting for Sports is a must-have for any weightlifting or strength coach. The writing and scripting are clear, concise, and direct. All the basics, teaching sequences, assistance exercises, details on periodization, and the sample programs are included in this set.

I especially like the sequence photos of the Snatch and Clean-and-Jerk. I constantly use these, particularly with my beginners.

This is straight talk from an experienced weightlifting coach!"

"Harvey –

Just wanted to drop you an email and tell you how much I enjoyed the DVD and training manual. A lot of tips and such, that brought back "great memories" from workouts in the past. Basic movements with basic goals. Great educational materials based on proven track records.

Hope your week is going well.
