Summary

Strength and Conditioning for Young Peopleoffers an evidence-based introduction to the theory and practice of strength and conditioning for children and young athletes. Drawing upon leading up-to-date research in all aspects of fitness and movement skill development, the book adopts a holistic approach to training centred on the concept of long-term athletic development and the welfare of the young athlete. While other textbooks focus on a single aspect of youth trainability, this book explores every key topic in strength and conditioning as applied to young people, including: Talent identification Physical literacy Strength, power and plyometrics Speed and agility Metabolic conditioning Mobility and flexibility Periodization Weightlifting myths Overtraining and injury prevention Nutrition Written by a team of leading international strength and conditioning experts and paediatric sport scientists, the book includes practical guidelines in every chapter to show how the latest scientific research can be applied by coaches to optimize young athletic potential. Including sample training programmes and exercise throughout, this is an essential resource for all students of strength and conditioning or paediatric exercise science, as well as any coach and athletic trainer working with children and young people.
