|The goal of this book is to define the field of Functional Athletic Development. The content reflects my 38 years of experience as a coach coupled with the applied sport science.
I am a coach, so it is written with the coach and practitioner in mind. This is not a cookbook of exercises and workouts, it is a work designed to explain the principles that underlie those workouts that make them successful.
Part I Elements of a Training System
Aimed at strength and conditioning professionals, as well as serious athletes and coaches across a wide variety of sports that are interested in challenging conventional wisdom and innovation and change to improve the athletes they are working with. This work covers all aspects of training from sport analysis and athlete evaluation to building speed, power and strength. It examines how theories and practices have evolved into today's state of the art methods for maximizing performance. From sport-specific demands to movement skill enhancement, training progressions to optimal performance, rest and regeneration techniques to training programs, this text covers all the bases in modern functional sports conditioning.
