Advances in Strength and Conditioning Research $110.00
Editors: Michael Duncan (University of Derby, Derby, UK) Mark Lyons (Newman University College, Birmingham, UK)
Book Description:
Human sport performance in recent years has surpassed what many thought was possible. In part these developments are due to development in sports science and strength and conditioning practices. The strength and conditioning arena has also grown dramatically over this period and draws on a range of academic disciplines including Exercise Physiology, Biomechanics, Sport Psychology and Physical Therapy. This book presents recent research in the field that provides a bridge between scientific knowledge and the strength and conditioning practitioner. A range of invigorating articles are included from a collection of international scientists and practitioners that examine areas pertinent to strength and conditioning from a range of perspectives. Research articles featured cover topics such as sport and exercise demands, the effect of training programs on performance, psychological impact of strength and conditioning training, the utility of conditioning exercises in pre and rehabilitation and biomechanical analysis of aspects of strength and conditioning practice.
