Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Garrick ( Peak Condition ), a sports medicine specialist, and writer Radetsky ( Pace Walking ) view exercise primarily as a means to better athletic performance. Their book therefore provides not a choice of fitness programs, but a wealth of information on how to utilize stretching, aerobics and strength training to improve physical conditioning before and in between tennis matches or bicycle trips. The authors describe and illustrate a range of exercises tailored to the needs of specific sports, problems and muscle groups, but the lack of an outline for a daily or weekly workout schedule makes this information useful to only highly motivated people capable of designing their own training programs. And while the section on overcoming past or minor injuries reminds us to seek professional advice, the book's suggestion that self-guided rehabilitation is sometimes fruitful seems potentially dangerous. For athletes already well-versed in careful training, however, the book could serve as a valuable resource. Author tour. (June)
Library Journal
It is an admirable goal to write a book that will allow readers to design individualized fitness and sports performance programs. Unfortunately, this book gets bogged down with narratives leading to descriptions of fitness programs, and repetition, especially in chapter 4, which details training for ten sports activities, varying from stretching to Alpine skiing. There is information to assist in assessing a person's baseline physical condition and in clarifying programs that will contribute to the achievement of performance goals. The advice is good, but the presentation misses its desired mark. A better book would be Richard Mangi, M.D., and others' Sports Fitness and Training ( LJ 6/15/87).-- Kenneth Tillman, Trenton State Coll., N.J.
School Library Journal
YA-- In plain, direct language, Garrick tells how to make choices about appropriate exercises. He devotes two chapters to specific charts and lists on assessing personal physical condition, analyzing needs, and setting goals. Another chapter explores the pros and cons of a variety of fitness activities. Isometric and isotonic exercises are also discussed. The workout sections describe specific exercises, some problems that may occur during these exercises, and solutions to the problems. Line drawings abundantly illustrate the prescribed techniques, which should inspire anyone to take up some physical activity.-- Anne Paget, Episcopal High School, Bellaire, TX
