About the Author

Professor Yuri Verkhoshansky is predominantly known to most western readers as the Russian researcher who invented plyometric training (Shock Method). 

Many coaches and sports scientists around the world, however, recognize Verkhoshansky as a prominent figure in the field of explosive strength training, one of the greatest experts in the theory of sports training whose ideas were implemented and expanded as: Methodology of Special Strength Training and Special Physical Preparation, Long Delay Training Effect, Conjugate-Sequence System Training, and Block Training System (known in the West as Block Periodization).

To a few sport training experts, he is known as the first scientist applied the Physiology of Adaptation in the theoretic analysis of the sports training process.

Some training experts also know that more than 20 years ago he introduced the new approach of planned training, “programming of training,” based upon the innovative for its time methodology that is presently known as System Analysis and Design and the structured process modeling.

Verkhoshansky started his career in the late 1950s as a Track and Field and Physical Education coach at the Moscow Institute of Aeronautic Engineers. In just two years he achieved incredible results: transforming 12 non-athlete university students belonging to his sports group into high-level Track and Field jumpers. In addition, he became famous as the first Soviet coach to introduce the Barbell Squat into the training of the Track and Field jumpers and sprinters. To add to his long list of contributions, he created the Shock Method and invented the Depth Jump. Soon after, he became the head coach of the Moscow United Team in the sprint and jump events and coach of the European record-holding sprinter Boris Zubov.
