Anatomy for Strength and Fitness Training for Speed and Sport

What does it take to succeed in sports? The formula for being a champion can be distilled into several skill sets that are essential for playing at a competitive level, with some of the most important being strength, speed and stamina. This full colour illustrated training guide takes an in-depth look at your muscles at work during various sporting activities, making it crystal clear how to tailor your training to your specific needs. Whether you play football, baseball, tennis, basketball, rugby, lacrosse — the anatomical illustrations used in this book show exactly how your muscles are engaged and how to improve your performance. Not only will athletes get the ultimate look at what happens to their bodies during bursts of speed, they will also find running and sprinting activities, elastic band overspeed activities, stretching activities, exercises to develop the muscles around the knees to limit potential injury, and general lower body development.
The book is divided into eight sections that focus on strength training and developing a conditioning programme. Sure to be a valuable reference for professionals and novices alike, Anatomy for Strength & Fitness Training for Speed and Sport features everything readers need to know to utilize and sustain speed and strength the smart way.
