Strength Band Training
Human Kinetics, 2019 - Exercise bands (Exercise equipment) - 264 pages
The top resource for strength band training is now expanded, updated, and better than ever!
Strength Band Training shows you how to maximize strength, speed, and flexibility in the gym, at home, or on the road. With more than 160 exercises and predesigned workouts for fitness and sport-specific training, you will discover why strength bands are the ultimate tool for targeting, isolating, rehabilitating, and developing every major muscle group.
The third edition includes a strength assessment index to measure progress, new chapters addressing training for older adults and rehabilitation, training tips connecting research to specific exercises, and injury prevention guidelines throughout. The book is organized to group exercises by upper and lower body strengthening, joint and muscle isolation, core stability, flexibility, and total body fitness. The full-color photos throughout the book showcase both flat bands and tubing.
The elastic resistance exercises allow you to add resistance in multiple directions--something free weights and machines cannot do--for resistance routines that can simulate sport-specific demands, strengthen your core, or help you prevent or recover from common injuries. The book has a total of 27 different programs designed for optimal fitness, team sport training, individual sport training, or rehabilitation.
Portable and easy to adjust, strength bands provide resistance for any level of strength, fitness, or ability. If you're an athlete, fitness enthusiast, older adult, or someone recovering from injury, you will find the exercises and programs you need to improve strength, shape your physique, and regain movement.
CE exam available! For certified professionals, a companion continuing education exam can be completed after reading this book. Strength Band Training, Third Edition Online CE Exam, may be purchased separately or as part of the Strength Band Training, Third Edition With CE Exam, package that includes both the book and the exam.
