Conditioning to the Core PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Conditioning to the Core free pdf Books on core training typically promise six-pack abs or trimmer waistlines, but Conditioning to the Core takes a different approach. While an aesthetically pleasing abdominal region is the aim for a bodybuilder, it is not the primary goal for an athlete. A torso trained for high-level sport performance is what it's all about for them. The book offers a functional approach to core training for athletes seeking a competitive edge in sports. Colour-coded stability, strength and power training exercises and programmes help readers grasp the proper design of a regime able to meet their respective goals. Full-colour anatomical artwork and demonstration photographs further inform readers on developing the most functional athletic core. Conditioning to the Core includes the most effective assessment tools and proven training programmes, complete with sport-specific examples, tips and applications for football, baseball, basketball, swimming, distance running and more.
