This edition completes the book Training Transfer in Sport.
This book has far-reaching thoughts and ideas as well as very practical information. It brings to light concrete examples of what is involved in the development of sports form - a new concept in the acquisition of the physical and technical qualities being trained for in a specific period of time.
In addition, there are extremely beneficial descriptions of different exercises and classification of exercises within GPP and SPP as for example general preparatory, general developmental, specialized preparatory, specialized developmental and so on. Much of this information makes the training all the more effective.
Even though much of the material and many of the examples relate to track and field, the information is applicable to all sports. Strength, speed-strength, speed, power training and the benefits of different exercises are the same regardless of sport. Applications of the information presented in this book can be made to most any sport without any major modifications.
This book, that has over 200 pages, will be talked about for many years by coaches looking for the latest and most beneficial information on constructing and carrying out the best training programs. It is the first time such information is being made available in the U.S.
