Training and Optimal Health for Sport
This book is for competitors of any sport, sports coaches of any sport, sports therapists and physical therapists and anyone who takes his or her exercise seriously. All sports people need sound training and dietary advice. Poor training regiments have hampered the success of many top class athletes over the years and this work offers reliable and indeed accessible information which is a prerequisite for all serious sports people. Shane Fitzgibbon has completed a thoughtful and intelligent work that will be an essential training aid, due in part to its practicality and user friendly nature, to both the amateur and to the top professional.
The book takes the reader, novice or expert on a detailed journey of sport education and valuable health information. You can't help but be sucked into the content as the book explains the correct procedure for many well known strength exercises and stretches with easy to understand instructions and detailed photographs and graphs to match, while at the same time being interestingly and uniquely interactive as it provides technique tests for the readers to experiment with.
One of the outstanding features of this book is the clear explanation of sensible and safe training routines to both daily life and in preparation for competition. In doing so, the author has produced an invaluable tool which is highly relevant to everyone- sports athletes, coaches, trainers and the general public.
