Overview

Great athletes make difficult moves look effortless with a combination of skill, strength, and balance. Traditional conditioning builds a fitness base, but modern sports training takes into account athletic movement patterns. Athletic Body in Balance is the first guide of its kind to show you how to train for smooth, fluid movement and prevent muscle imbalances, mobility restrictions, stability problems, and injuries.

Physical therapist and sports conditioning expert Gray Cook has proven the effectiveness of his approach through the performances of athletes in the NFL, NBA, NHL, WNBA, and Reebok® University's sports training system. Cook's methods will help you identify functional weaknesses; correct imbalances; explore your potential; and refine sport-specific movement skills such as jumping, kicking, cutting, and turning. You will see where conditioning is breaking down and how to get your body back on track.

Whereas other books concentrate on maximizing your strengths, Athletic Body in Balance focuses on exposing and overcoming your weaknesses to form a foundation for long-term training gains. Learn how to maintain what you gain and build on your improvements. Make this comprehensive assessment tool your training guide. Prepare and repair your body for ultimate athletic performance with Athletic Body in Balance.

    Recommended as the basis for all fitness workouts.

    As a certified fitness trainer and coach of a very technical sport, I see many people with poor functional strength who think they're great athletes, only to get frustrated because they don't see the success they expect from themselves. The information in this book has opened my eyes to understand why they aren't successful as they want to be. I intend to utilize this information as the basis of starting a workout program. The information contained in this book is good not just for athletes but everyone! Some of the detailed ratings seem a little strange for this kind of book, which is why sentiments are either deselected or rated lower. Those ratings in no way reflect poorly on this book. It's very easy to understand and will be a mainstay in my practice.

    Still haven't received my book after nearly a month

    I'd love to write a review about this book, if only I'd received it nearly a month after my order. It's my first purchase at Barnes & Noble and I'm truly disappointed.
