Athletic movement skills : training for sports performance
Brewer, Clive2017
Athletic Movement Skills: Training for Sports Performance sets a new standard for athletic assessment and development. This authoritative work presents proven protocols for evaluating, correcting, training and translating athletic movement to athletic dominance. Combining the latest science and research with cutting-edge techniques and strategies, Athletic Movement Skills will show you how to: - develop multidirectional speed and power for any sport and any position; - improve jumping and agility with effective plyometric progressions; - harness and apply power in critical game or match situations; - evaluate and correct posture and body position; - reduce injuries and expedite rehabilitation; - create functional strength progressions that will directly translate to on-field performance. Hundreds of photo sequences and illustrations plus 10 detailed exercise progressions depict how to refine and perfect speed, agility, strength and power-related movements and skills.
