Sports training has developed at a bewildering pace and in a number of directions. This book aims to make sense of the new techniques and the jargon that goes with them, so that athletes and coaches have a guide to developing speed and endurance through different types of training and nutrition.
Training for sport developed at a bewildering pace during the 1990s and left coaches and athletes struggling to keep up with all the theories on offer and then to apply the most effective ones to their daily training regimens. The contributors to this book are sports specialists keen to bridge the gap between laboratory findings and athlete preparation. They are all involved in the training and preparation of elite athletes, and their aim in writing this book has been to provide practical guidelines for developing and maintaining speed and endurance fitness for both individuals and team players. Areas covered include: exercise physiology essentials, speed training methods, endurance training methods, periodisation of speed and endurance, conditioning the team player, recovery training, nutrition for sports performance, and injury treatment and prevention. Training for speed and endurance should help you to make sense of all the new techniques and the latest research.
