Sports training refers to the enhancement of skills for physical activities and sports in particular. Different types of sports require different types and levels of training. Athletes spend a major share of their time practicing routines in order to perform their best. Different approaches, evaluations, methodologies and advanced studies on sports training have been included in this book. It will prove immensely beneficial to students and researches in this field.
Written by the President of the European Athletics Coaches Association, this book provides a reference on training theory and practice for all who accept and pursue responsibility for developing athletes to fulfil their performance potential. It covers: anatomy and basic biomechanics; energy production systems; psychology, learning procedures and technical training; performance components - strength, speed, endurance and mobility; training cycles, periodization, adaptation to external loading and coaching methods.
To develop the physical education, culture it is essential the concept of sports training should be familiar to physical education teachers and coaches. Knowing the principles of sports training alone is not enough, teachers and coaches should be well versed with the methods and means of sports training, so that this knowledge can be successfully applied on the field. The personality and professional knowledge of the coach, teacher, trainer or instructor play a crucial part in the quality of sports training implemented. Therefore, to meet this principle, the coach must be able to integrate pieces of knowledge across the fields like anatomy, physiology, biomechanics, psychology, sociology, theory of motor learning and didactics. The subject of sports training is highly dynamic in nature. As a result of constant research, new knowledge is being evolved which in turn can be effectively utilized to enable sports persons to enhance their performance capacity and readiness of performance. I hope the book “Sports Training”, which is based on my earlier books “Science of Sports Training” and “Principles of Sports Training” would provide latest scientific knowledge to the physical education students and teachers. The book is written for the students of physical education courses which are based on the prescribed syllabus of NCTE. The purpose to the book is to provide relevant text for the students and to lay the framework for a discussion of the relative significance of a sports training. The presentation of the book is simple and language is very fluent and easy to understand. I am sure that the content of the book will not only be useful for the students of physical education but also for researchers, teachers and for those who are really interested to know about it
This new, in-depth sport physiology reference provides a strong introduction to the physiological principles underlying sport training and performance.

Physiological Aspects of Sport Training and Performanceis an excellent resource for students and professionals in sports medicine and sport physiology. The book thoroughly explores the practical and applied aspects of exercise prescription and includes specific advice on the conditioning and performance of athletes. Physiological Aspects of Sport Training and Performancealso explains how various components of sport and performance are measured. Dr. Jay Hoffman has worked extensively with athletes and coaches throughout his professional career. Focusing on training factors and how various conditions and situations affect sport performance, he provides an in-depth review of all physiological components of an athlete's training program. Physiological Aspects of Sport Training and Performancecovers a broad range of topics: -Physiological adaptations to exercise -Exercise training principles and prescription -Nutrition, fluid regulation, and ergogenic aids -Environmental factors -Medical and health conditions The information is presented in an attractive, reader-friendly format that makes learning easy. Key terms appear in bold print; chapters are packed with supporting figures; and numerous tables bring life to standardized performance data and specific athletic profiles, such as strength measures for collegiate football players. Physiological Aspects of Sport Training and Performancewill quickly become your primary reference book. It provides all the answers you need to successfully prescribe exercise for a wide variety of athletes.
This is the new, fully revised, sixth edition of this ultimate reference tool for all coaches responsible for training athletes to fulfill their performance potential. Written by world-renowned and highly sought after coach and President of the European Athletics Coaches Association, Frank W. Dick, with contributions from Professor Timothy Noakes (University of Cape Town, South Africa), Dr Penny Werthner (University of Calgary, Canada), Scott Drawer (Athletic Performance Manager of Rugby Football Union), Vern Gambetta (USA Track & Field), Dr Cliff Mallett and Dr David Jenkins (University of Queensland, Australia), this textbook comprehensively covers the core aspects of sports coaching which can be applied to all sports and disciplines. This new edition has been extensively revised to incorporate the latest theory and practice in sports training and coaching, with supplementary contributions from international experts. The book covers the key sports science topics: Anatomy and physiology; Biomechanics, Psychology; Nutrition; Performance Analysis; Training; and Coaching methods This is a highly recommended resource for students of applied sports science, sports coaching, sports development, PE teachers, fitness advisers, coaches and athletes.
This volume embodies the cumulative results of extensive scientific study and applied work by some of the world's leading experts in the theory and methodology of sport training, and sport/exercise psychology.
Biomedical Engineering Principles in Sports contains in-depth discussions on the fundamental biomechanical and physiological principles underlying the acts of throwing, shooting, hitting, kicking, and tackling in sports, as well as vision training, sports injury, and rehabilitation. The topics include: -Golf ball aerodynamics and golf club design, -Golf swing and putting biomechanics, -Tennis ball aerodynamics and ball- and shoe-surface interactions, -Tennis stroke mechanics and optimizing ball-racket interactions, -Baseball pitching biomechanics and perceptual illusions of batters, -Football forward pass aerodynamics and tackling biomechanics, -Soccer biomechanics, -Basketball aerodynamics and biomechanics, -Vision training in sports, -Children maturation and performance, -Rehabilitation and medical advances in treatment of sports injuries. This book is essential reading for biomedical engineers, physicists, sport scientists, and physiologists who wish to update their knowledge of biomechanical and biomedical principles and their applications to sports. The book can be used in a one-semester Senior or Graduate-level course in Biomechanics, Biomedical Engineering, Sports Technology, Sports Medicine, or Exercise Physiology. In addition, it will be of value to interested athletic laypersons who enjoy watching or participating in sports such as golf, tennis, softball, football, soccer, and basketball.
