Product Description

Written by legendary strength coach and Westside Barbell founder Louie Simmons, Thrower’s Guide to Strength Training (available here only as a digital eBook) applies many of the longstanding pillars of Westside’s methodology specifically to the world of competitive throwing, i.e., shot put, discus, hammer, and javelin.

“My goal,” Simmons explains in the book’s introduction, “is to convince both the coach and the athlete that the Westside System can make it possible to combine strength and power training all year long—not just in the off season—by integrating all training efforts together. This means the athlete must continue to weight train and perform explosive power training during his or her competition period.”

While many throwing athletes and their coaches reduce strength training in-season, Simmons lays out the science behind his belief in a better approach. This includes deep dives into Westside staples such as periodization, the Conjugate System, explosive strength through jumping, maximal and dynamic method strength training, and much more.

Louie Simmons (1947-2022) served as a strength consultant for several NFL teams and was the inventor of the Reverse Hyperextension Machine. His highly exclusive gym, Westside Barbell in Columbus, OH, has more than 100 World Records to its name.
