Pacing PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Pacing free pdf Whether it's a runner who starts the race too fast, a cyclist battling a strong headwind, or a tennis player taking extra recovery time during a court changeover, athletes and their coaches agree on one thing: Selecting the correct pacing strategy can make the difference between winning and losing, or even finishing, an event. In Pacing: Individual Strategies for Optimal Performance, Kevin Thompson reviews the latest studies on pacing and sport performance to give athletes the tools they need to formulate their own customised pacing strategies. As one of the first to make a comprehensive, research-based analysis of pacing strategies across an array of sports, Thompson identifies the physiological underpinnings of each type: all-out, positive, even, negative, parabolic and variable. While the adage of "slow and steady wins the race" may hold true for some, the best strategy is one that athletes develop to ensure they never work at too high a level so that they tire too quickly or at too low a level so that they fail to reach their potential. It features cutting-edge strategies to achieve peak performance.
