Is there a rigorous undergrad level book that has many worked examples and can supplement well the Irodov Problems in General Physics?

I have the Resnick Halliday, but its treatment seems

*way*too simplistic for me to tackle olympiad level problems like those on Irodov.

Here are the topics I need to strengthen:

1. Extended object mechanics (as well as kinematic relationships between interacting objects, which is widely used on pulley problems in Irodov)

2. non-inertial frames (was well as Work-Energy theorem in non-inertial frame)

3. Optics (especially the E&M aspect of optics)

4. gyroscopic motion

5. angular momentum

Some problems I have a hard time, include:

- rolling object hits a corner,

- 2 mass connected by a spring are accelerated by a force

- 2 masses connected by a spring vertically and both leaving the ground after releasing the spring??

- hideous pulley problems

Thanks!
