You know the importance of physical fitness in sport, but do you know how to train your athletes to perform at their best?Sport Physiology for Coaches is designed to help coaches assess, refine, enhance, and improve athletes' performance through an applied approach to exercise physiology. Written primarily for high school coaches, this practical, user-friendly text not only covers training essentials for muscular and energy fitness, but it also provides the hands-on assessments, forms, and training plans to help you implement the concepts in your training sessions.To guide you in the development of a training program for your sport, the book features sample programs for sports involving skill, power, power endurance, intermittent activity, and aerobic activity.
