Item description for Complete Conditioning for the Female Athlete by Christine Wells Dr. Bob O'Connor...

Women athletes are strong, powerful and dedicated to their sports. And they have specific needs when it comes to training and conditioning. Female athletes don't need another conditioning book that is written for men with a chapter about women tacked on as an afterthought. With Complete Conditioning for Female Athletes women can learn how to train their bodies for great performance in their sport.

The needs of a volleyball player are different from that of a dancer; the needs of a martial artist are different from that of a swimmer. Each sport is different. It's a simple concept that can create big headaches when designing a training program. This book gives women the information they need about their bodies and their sports to design the best possible training programs. Whether she is looking for speed, size or power, she will learn what sport-specific exercises and training methods offer the right results - and what ones won't work for her sport.

Complete Conditioning for Female Athletes is a comprehensive resource that includes information on muscle types and fibers, plyometrics, aerobic training, overtraining, flexibility, speed, injuries, nutrition, stress, harassment, mental conditioning, and scientific findings from the world's top researchers. Much more than a general conditioning book, women will rely on the sport-specific advice and information.

Promise Angels is dedicated to bringing you great books at great prices. Whether you read for entertainment, to learn, or for literacy - you will find what you want at!

Reviews - What do customers think about Complete Conditioning for the Female Athlete?

Complete Conditioning For Female Athletes  Jan 2, 2002
I coach girls track and boys football at the high school level. I bought it for more info on my girls, but it is equally valuable for the boys--at least most of it. It gave me such updated information that I have never seen before. It is a must for all serious coaches.
Invaluable, indispensable, and comprehensive  Nov 13, 2001
Bob O'Connor (retired professor of health and physical education and a licensed psychologist); Kari Fasting (one of the world's top experts in issues related to women and sport); Diane Dahm (instructor and consultant in the Mayo Medical School Department of Orthopedics); and Christine Wells (former university teacher of exercise physiology and kinesiology currently working in the medical field) combine their considerable years of experience and expertise to provide readers with an accurately titled Complete Conditioning For The Female Athlete: A Guide For Coaches & Athletes. Different sports make different demands on the human body, the things that a tennis player calls upon her body to do are different from the demands a ballerina or a swimmer makes upon theirs. Here is an invaluable, indispensable, and comprehensive resource that includes information on muscle types and fibers, plyometrics, aerobic training, over training, flexibility, speed, injuries, nutrition, stress, harassment, mental condition, and more -- directly relevant to women athletes at any point of their physical development and performance levels. No physical education department, professional sports team, or woman athlete's personal reference library can afford to be without a copy of Complete Conditioning For The Female Athlete.
