  • Are you using cutting-edge techniques?

Secrets of Russian Sports Fitness and Training explains the Russian/Soviet system of training athletes and gives recommendations and guidelines on how you can incorporate the most important aspects of the program to improve sports  performance. For more information


This book explains the advanced, multi-year training system developed by the Soviets which is still in use today. It is employed not only by the Russians, but former Soviet republics, Germany, other European nations and China.

Although the original research and training practices were written and developed over thirty years ago, the methods and practical experiences have only partially been incorporated in the U.S. Today many coaches and athletes are actively seeking this information.

This book refutes the common myth that Soviet sports successes were due to money, drugs, and robbing the cradles of young athletes. This sophisticated system was remarkable in its ability to effectively develop an athlete’s full potential.

One Review for Secrets of Russian Sports Fitness & Training

  1. Shea Thompson says:

    Dr. Yessis goes into all subject matters of the Russian Sports Training system and helps understand what led to a long period of Olympic Dominance.

    The book discusses subjects such as nutrition, restoration methods, psychology, speed-strength training, further research and how it was utilized in the Russian system. This new edition also adds more information on each subject that was not in the previous book.

    Dr. Yessis sparks your interest in diving deeper into Russian Sports System and probably led me to look into other books referenced. I think this is a good book if someone is interested in learning outside of their current knowledge and may lead them wanting to know more.
