Power Raquetball, from Ken Drees

September 15, 2014 |

 Marty Hogan's Power Raquetball was a 1978 paperback large book I got for 25 cents at a library book sale. It shows Hogan hitting a racqetball under a speed gun at 142 mph, and even shows Keeley with a shaved head playing in a match trying to psych out his opponent. It shows Keeley losing to Hilecher, on the floor as his taunting fails.

There are lots of conditioning exercises and routines in it. Here is a wrist strengthening exercise: with palm down, arm extended, get a double sheet of newpaper, hold it by the corner and start to crumple it with one hand only. Try and crumple the newspaper sheet into a ball the size of a raquetball. This exercise uses all the fingers and is better than simply squeezing a ball. Do it twice a day.
