I'm the best program design book. Unfortunately, there's only one copy in all existence, and it's not an easy read.SQ 2x150kg BP 95kg DL 190kg OHP 60kg @ 70kg
I like singing karaoke sober, buying Magikarp outside Mt Moon and staring directly at the sun. Fitness geek + theology nerd.

The book covers program design and peridiozation pretty well, usually with an example of three different sports. NSCA also has a Guide to Program Design book that looks pretty interesting. I personally haven't seen it but amazon allows you to look through certain pages of the book.
Also, I recommend looking into any Gray Cook, Alwyn Cosgrove, or Mike Boyle materials. All are very distinguished strength coaches with knowledge on movement and proper athletic programs and exercises.Performance Specialist

My horror novel, Wolf Hunter (written under my pen name, J.L. Benet), is now available from Belfire Press. For those who like your werewolves served with a side of bloody gore (as opposed to sparkle-fairies and ennui), this is the novel for you.
