|Summary, etc.:|| Athletes train long hours to become stronger and faster and to gain a competitive edge in their sport. But adding absolute strength and power often creates muscle imbalances and mobility limitations that cause injuries and limit skill training. So how do athletes match their training to the fundamental movement requirements found in game situations? The answer is Athletic Body in Balance. No other book on the market covers movement assessment and corrective training to free an athlete’s body to perform. With seven assessment tests and exercises for mobility, stability, power, speed, and endurance, this comprehensive guide provides a training blueprint for athletes and strength and conditioning coaches. Every athlete can move more efficiently and injury-free. Proven at the highest levels of sport, including the NFL, NBA, NHL, and WNBA, Athletic Body in Balance will be a standard training reference for players and coaches.
