Xlibris US, Sep 15, 2011 - Health & Fitness - 146 pages
Author JIM CHRISTIAN explores the social and theoretical progress of strength training from the 1950’s and lays the foundation for the development of training methods that go beyond the conventional way of thinking. While coaching high school football in the mid 70’s, his interest in developing an ideal strength program for athletes leads him to a small fitness center where his conventional beliefs about strength training are shattered. It was the start of an educational journey toward a new and better way of strength training which he later refers to as the post-conventional way. Common strength training myths are addressed, and the conventional explanation of how muscles become stronger is scientifically challenged. An emphasis is placed upon the improvement of health, fitness, and lifestyle through the benefits of strength training. Now age 77, Jim is currently a part-time personal trainer at World Gym Lexington in Peachtree City, Georgia and is certified through the International Sports Conditioning Association (ISCA). Over the last thirty five years, his list of trainees has included business men and women, seniors, top high school, college, amateur, and professional athletes, beauty contestants, and singer Steve Walsh of the Kansas band.
