About this item

Boyle, a sports performance coach specializing in strength and conditioning, functional training, and general fitness, provides trainers and athletes with exercises for improving speed, strength, and power during sport performance, based on best practices in functional training. He describes what functional training is, how to analyze the demands of a specific sport, how to assess the strengths and weaknesses of athletes, how to design a program, and exercises for stretching, and dynamic warm-up; lower body, core, upper body, and pylometric training; Olympic lifting; and performance enhancement programs. This edition updates all information in the original version, Functional Training for Sports, and has new sections on areas like foam rolling and mobility; rewritten chapters to reflect scientific advances, philosophical changes, and additional experience; an updated chapter on core training; and reworked chapters on lower body training. Also provided is access to an online video library of 71 clips demonstrating exercises. Annotation ©2016 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
