Overview

If you participate in more than one sport or fitness activity--whether it's golf in the summer and squash in the winter; running on Mondays and tennis on Tuesdays; or a combined daily workout at the gym--then you are cross-training. You may be doing it to achieve more complete fitness; to relieve the boredom of engaging in only one activity; to combat prohibitive weather conditions; or to prevent injuries; but you're doing it, and "Cross-Training" is the perfect companion.

Find out the what, when, why, how, and where of cross-training, and: which muscles are worked by which sports; how to combine your favorite activities into an all-around workout; cross-training to enhance performance in a single sport or event; using cross-training to help avoid injury; working less common activities--like waterskiing, in-line skating, jazz dancing, and boxing--into your cross-training program; and much, much more.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Cross-training is a fairly new concept which entails incorporating a variety of physical activities into a personal physical fitness program. Except for books on the subject of training for triathlons, there are relatively few books devoted to the subject of cross-training for individuals who simply want to participate in a variety of physical activities to promote a more balanced approach to fitness. For example, a person whose main activity is running may also bicycle once or twice a week, take an aerobics class, or start a program of power walking. All of these cross-training activities will help maintain the high level of cardiovascular conditioning that running provides, but lessen the chance of injury due to overuse, boredom, or ``burnout.'' This is a good beginner book for anyone interested in starting a cross-training program.--Susan L. Patton, Tennessee Valley Authority, Knoxville
