Author Vladimir M. Zatsiorsky, a world-renowned sport biomechanist and former strength and conditioning consultant for the Soviet Union Olympic teams, knows that strength training is more than pumping iron. In Science and Practice of Strength Training he examines strength from a biomechanical and physiological perspective. He shows strength and conditioning professionals and coaches how to use basic scientific principles to improve muscular strength in their athletes. Zatsiorsky begins by discussing training theory and the biomechanical and physiological factors that determine muscle strength. Next, he shows readers how to apply this information to strength training programs by using data gathered from the training logs of more than 1,000 elite Eastern European Olympic and world-class athletes.
