Reviewed by Garuch

Rating out of 10: 9.5

Well written in language that is clear and concise, this book answers so many questions that attempting to highlight any of them leaves far too many unmentioned. While hardly a page turner, this Velo Press offering once again maintains the very high bar of all their competition books.

Maximum Performance is a book which should, of course, be read cover to cover. But, it is also a book which should remain at the athlete's bedside for reference at the completion of any training day which raises performance questions. There is a good chance that the answer will be found within it's pages... How does protein metabolism and carbohydrate metabolism differ and what is the effect on the recovery cycle of the athlete? The inner portion of my knee hurts. What do I do to change this and help it to heal? What is truly a good fit for my bike? Why do I get "Sour Stomach" and how do I avoid it on long distance rides?

These questions and so many more are answered within these pages. More importantly however, on the first read through the book the budding athlete finds not only the answers to the questions they have, but also the answers to the questions that they did not know to ask!

This book belongs on the night table of every cyclist who rides more than 30 miles at a clip, every distance runner, and every swimmer covering more that two laps. It explains what you are doing to your body and how to maximize your body's response to stress exercise for efficient, productive training as well as how to avoid training that actually breaks down rather than building up performance.

I recommend it highly!
