New Power Program



(Just ask your favorite bookstore to order you a copy)

 Dr. Michael Colgan shows you the right way to gain maximum strength, speed and endurance.

Although this best selling book is about weight training, it is NOT a book about body building! It is a book about achieving maximum strength, speed and endurance. 

Unlike bodybuilders, who do not have to perform on the playing field, athletes should never train heavy all year long. 

The most a human body can take of any heavy weight program is about 60 minutes. After that, hormone levels start to decline, neural fatigue sets in, and further weight work will not increase muscle power --or even muscle mass, according to Colgan. 

To back up his claims, Colgan typically sites mountains of scientific evidence, as well as his own experience to demonstrate how over training creates injury and long-term fatigue of the nervous system.

This large format, fully illustrated training system contains tips on nutrition, supplementation and includes the "Colgan Power Diet" - and can be used to increase the power, quickness and endurance of athletes of all levels, from weekend warriors to Olympic medalists.
