Unbeatable Buttocks

You could say that this book is about buttocks, buttocks and more buttocks. But actually it is probably best read as an extension of core stability training. As various of the contributors point out, the gluteal muscles are crucial for strength and power in athletic movement, but they are also key to stability control of the trunk. The problem is that we rather take our butts for granted. It's vital that we understand and appreciate the different roles for which we need to condition and balance the musculature - and nowhere is this more true than with multi-tasking the gluteus medius! Failure to do so frequently leads to a wide range of injuries in athletes - including many of the most common ailments: patellofemoral pain, anterior cruciate ligament injuries, iliotibial band syndrome, ankle injuries and Achilles tendinopathy Whether it's pain relief for the lower back and butt, core conditioning, or kicking power you seek, this book has valuable answers and loads of practical exercises, from the very simple to the fearsomely challenging, to help lift you out of injury and put you on track for performing to your max.

The Frontiers of Running

Back in the 1970s, when the running boom began, there was limited expertise available for non-elite runners on how best to train and attain maximum race performance, and less still on minimising the risk of injury and avoiding overtraining. Thanks to 40 years of sports science research we now know a lot more about the underlying exercise physiology and nutrition of endurance exercise but the questions facing runners remain the same: How hard, long and frequently should I train to maximise fitness but stay injury-free? How can I reduce my risk of injury? What nutritional and psychological strategies can I employ to enhance my race performance? Although most runners understand the basics of training, the real challenge is to gather together the best practice and latest scientific thinking from running research, then apply it to a training programme. This new report, The Frontiers of Running, tries to do just this.   MORE
