The long awaited book that I've been hearing about for nearly two years. Others have been hearing of it for much longer. It should be interesting when Coach actually puts it out. He has a good rep from what I know.

Coach Sommer is knows on the net as a strength and conditioning guru so to speak. Ontop of that he must also be a pretty darn good coach since he has members on the US Jnr National team.
These books and DVD's have certainly been highly anticipated. I would recommend them to anyone really who is into stregth training and gymnastics.

For when you hit the big eight-oh?

I'll believe they're out when the first copies ship.

One thing is I'm confused at the picture on the front of it - I had posted this on the CF forums, and probably caught crap because of what I said.

I'm about 100% sure the "body" part of it will be a book bought by many people that just won't do it for anything other than the look. My point is who cares about look - but the advertising seems to try to hit on how you look, rather than the strength and power those athletes develop. Bad advertising, good book. I'm very interested to see how much of it focuses on any lower body development as far as strength goes. I can do flips and tumble without any strength training whatsoever, and all of the other things really focus on upper body type movements. Maybe I'm completely wrong (4 years of gymnastics when I was younger, and did no lower body stuff).

I preordered.

You'll be one of the first to see it Patrick. I'll bring it in when I get it.

If I don't need it I may donate it to Gymkana.

George,
You won't catch any crap here, but humans are a very vain species. No matter how many different ways we try to sugarcoat and deny our motives, nearly everything we do is an attempt to ensure our genes get passed on. Ross E just wrote a blog about this subject (vanity and training):
