Présentation de l'éditeur
Drawing on the very latest scientific research, Strength and Conditioning for Team Sports is designed to help students, coaches, researchers and sports medicine professionals devise more effective high-performance training programs for team sports. The only evidence-based study of sport-specific practice for team sports, this book introduces the core science underpinning any strength and conditioning regime, combining the best of applied physiology, biomechanics, sports medicine and coaching science.
The book addresses all aspects of training prescription and the key components of any degree course related to strength and conditioning, including
- physiological and performance testing
- strength training
- metabolic conditioning
- power training
- agility and speed training
- training for core stability
- training for injury prevention.
Each chapter features guidelines for evidence-based training prescription as well as recommendations for novel ways in which to approach physical preparation for team sports players, bridging the traditional gap between sport science research and sport performance. Fully illustrated throughout, this book is essential reading for any serious student of strength and conditioning, and for any coach looking to extend their professional practice.

This book talks about good topics without trying to suggest many random or basic exercises most books do. Most coaches dont need to learn exercises from books, they need to learn reasons why to do certain things and then make their own philosophies from that - this is what this books discusses and uses current research to back it up. It reads well is very informative. My only concern is it is not long and thorough enough. My guess is the 2nd edition is more thorough so I will next try the 2nd edition. Overall, a good book for coaches who already have a little experience already.
I will always refer to this book to help me build and design programmes as the examples and training reccommendations are excellent. Gambles approach to S&C is logical and clear and bridges the gap between theory and peformance.
This is book is a must and all S&C Coaches should at some point use it as a guide to helping improve athletes sporting performance.
When starting this book, you can see that the author's intensions were good as he obviously took a lot of time to review the literature. This is the way that it should be done, but questions are raised a little when you look into the quality of some of these references.
As we all know, there are many schools of thought on topics in strength and conditioning such as periodization, unstable training, rotational strength, and the development of power. The author seems to have attempted to present evidence backing the majority of these "schools". Again, the intention behind this is probably good, but I can see a young strength and conditioning coach new to the profession being extremely confused about the optimal way as there is little into how to bring all of these forms together into a long term plan. Essentially everything works, as far as this text is concerned, even though many of these forms of training may be contradicting and result in sub-optimal adaptation. More theoretical and practical information on periodization may have helped avoid this. The important periodization section is just 18 pages long.
Looking at the title, one would expect to see extensive sections exploring the challenges that face us when working in team sports: a long competitive season, extensive on-field training (and how to quantify this and react to it), and long term athletic development when winning every game is important. This is what being successful with team sports is all about. Sadly these subjects are barely touched upon which is disappointing.
There is some really good information in this book, but it is surrounded by a myriad of conflicting advice. If you have a good grasp on training theory and on periodization and therefore can pick out the useful info, then pick this up. If you are new to strength and conditioning then I would not recommend it, not because it is an advanced text, just because it may be difficult for you to apply what you are reading to a yearly plan.
