Shawn Burke

Jeff has put together the most cutting-edge and comprehensive course on isometric training. He provides in great depth the foundational science, rationale and practical application of isometrics. This course is applicable for strength/performance coaches, sports medical professionals as well as sport coaches and athletes. Sample programming is included along with hours of videos, exercise demonstrations, and scientific review and analysis. I could not recommend this course any more highly!
