Nils Holmdahl

As a scientific consultant and specialist coach I have been responsible for several Swedish athletes in many sports on a national and also international and Olympic level for more than four decades.

I learned about Prof. Verkhoshanskis research from Sweden National Track and Field Coach Gustaf Laurel and he also was a coach for the European Team twice. This was in the middle of the 60´s. I learned about the ´Hit Shock Method´ and the drop jumps. Since than I read all articles I found from Verkhoshanski wich not always was easy to find.

In my daily work with top athletes I have published articles in scientific journals in Sweden and a DVD-production about Special Strength Training including some 300 excercises to minimize injuries and optimizing development.

In march 2001 I was invited to Prof. Verkhoshanski in Rome in Italy together with Gustaf Laurel. This was the beginning of a deep friendship between us and our family and since than I visited him several times. I also arranged for a seminar in Stockholm 2003 in the Swedish Olympic Committies regim. It was a three day seminar together with top coaches from several sports. After Yuris death in 2011 my families friendship and cooperation with his daughter Natalia and her husband Massimo has continued.
