This is a digital eBook-only version of The Rule of Three: Preparing Boys and Girls for Athletic Success. This helpful guide for coaches and parents was published by Westside Barbell and written by Westside’s legendary founder Louie Simmons.
As Simmons explains in the book’s introduction, “to successfully participate in sports today, it is extremely important for all children in the 7-10 age group to develop coordination, flexibility, general strength, endurance, hand and eye coordination, and the ability to perform athletic feats.” With this in mind, Louie applies his half-century of knowledge, gained from his role as a champion powerlifter and strength coach, and as a lifelong student of proven training methods from around the globe.
The Rule of Three explores differences in approach for girls and boys, training for flexibility, how to select a suitable sport for a young athlete, speed and endurance training, special strength training for beginners, and much more. The 100-page guide also comes with dozens of helpful illustrations covering some of the key recommended exercises.
