Reach a higher level of athleticism with Functional Training for Sports

Functional training is a complete system of athletic development that focuses on training the body the way it will be used in competition, making it the most efficient and effective form of training today. Author Mike Boyle, renowned strength and conditioning coach formerly with the Boston Bruins, addresses movement, body positions, and abilities that are essential for success in competition. Through Functional Training for Sports, you will improve your total athleticism, enhance your performance, and reduce injuries through exercise progressions that will spur your development potential for specific movement patterns you commonly use in your sport.

Providing tests for you to determine where to start, the progressions focus on training for the torso, the upper body, and the lower body. Functional Training for Sports also provides detailed programs that incorporate the exercises and methods for these progressions. As you master each progression, you will be preparing yourself to perform in any situation with notable improvements in stability and balance, reaction time, core strength, and power. This whole-body, sport-applied system makes Functional Training for Sports your key to today’s most effective and efficient training!

Straight forward and helpful training reference material.

The information in the textbook was very helpful and I will use it when working with some of my students at the Community College where I teach a beginner level fitness course. As well, the instructions on how to apply the push and pull type of workout strategy for training was great. Lots of good exercises and information about how to progress the exerccises is also included. The material is straight forard and easy to understand. Thank you.
