Synopsis:

Top athletes have long utilized functional training to zero in on the muscle groups they need for peak performance during competition. This book teaches all athletes — from weekend enthusiasts to pro players — the functional training exercises that will produce the best results in their sport by mimicking the actual movements they utilized in that sport.With these unique programs, athletes can simultaneously improve posture, balance, stability, and mobility. Each exercise progresses from simple to complex, low-to high-intensity, and addresses all aspects of athletic movement. The movements target specific muscle groups, while working related muscle groups and toning vital stabilizer muscles.Throughout the book, helpful icons show readers when an exercise applies to their sport and when it is useful for specific movements like sprinting, throwing, jumping, or changing direction. From there, the sport-specific workouts go beyond merely getting in shape to prepare the reader for shaking off a defender, spiking the ball over the net, or beating the throw to home plate.
