Annotation: Bringing together a diverse, international group of professionals, Joyce and Lewindon present updated, cutting-edge performance science with essential information for practical application. They describe their twofold goal in performance training: to develop the physiological reserves needed for high performance with less decay over time, and promote the robustness needed to withstand technical and tactical training without injury. Twenty-four chapters are divided into three parts: building robust athletes; developing athletic capacity; delivering performance. The first section deals with fundamental processes involved in developing athletes resistant to injury. The second section discusses key athletic capacities and how to develop them. The third section describes combining all the attributes of performance. Targeting sports and fitness coaches, as well as medical and rehabilitation personnel, they aim to provide the reader with an in-depth understanding of athletic training for practical application. There are references, about the editors, about the contributors, illustrations, tables, and figures. Annotation ©2014 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (
