Overview

The Complete Guide to Sports Training is the definitive
practical resource for anyone wishing to improve their performance and
for coaches looking to get the best out of their athletes. It
demystifies sports science and provides athletes and coaches with the
basic building blocks they need to maximise performance. Starting with
the basics and progressing to the specific elements all athletes need -
speed, endurance and power - this invaluable handbook explains the
theory in simple, easy-to-understand terms before discussing the most
effective training methods and techniques, as well as giving guidance
on developing a training plan, sports psychology and training younger
and older athletes. This is the first time such a wealth of sports
science knowledge has been available in one book and written in such an
accessible style, and should become the sports training handbook for
athletes, coaches and sports science students.
