Présentation de l'éditeur
Strength and Conditioning for Team Sports is designed to help trainers and coaches to devise more effective high-performance training programs for team sports. This remains the only evidence-based study of sport-specific practice to focus on team sports and features all-new chapters covering neuromuscular training, injury prevention and specific injury risks for different team sports. Fully revised and updated throughout, the new edition also includes over two hundred new references from the current research literature.
The book introduces the core science underpinning different facets of physical preparation, covering all aspects of training prescription and the key components of any degree-level strength and conditioning course, including:
- physiological and performance testing
- strength training
- metabolic conditioning
- power training
- agility and speed development
- training for core stability
- training periodisation
- training for injury prevention
Bridging the traditional gap between sports science research and practice, each chapter features guidelines for evidence-based best practice as well as recommendations for approaches to physical preparation to meet the specific needs of team sports players. This new edition also includes an appendix that provides detailed examples of training programmes for a range of team sports. Fully illustrated throughout, it is essential reading for all serious students of strength and conditioning, and for any practitioner seeking to extend their professional practice.

Sport coaches or personal trainers with no college degree would find the contents very technical. It would very hard for these types of professionals to pull out practical information that they could incorporate into their programs.
The book begins with a general discussion of training principles and assessment and then works through training different physical capacities such as strength, power, agility, metabolic conditioning and speed. There is a heavy emphasis on injury prevention as well as specialised topics such as periodisation and physical preparation for team sports. Throughout the book there are a good range of figures showing different exercises that practitioners might not be familiar with.
Another nice feature of the book is it is written by someone who understands the unique challenges of working in team sport environments and there is some good discussion and suggested solutions for some of these factors such as extended competition seasons, concurrent training etc. The book finishes with some practical examples of training design across some different sports that should give practitioners a good starting point for design of their own training programs for team sports.
