This landmark book delivers into your hands the work and thinking of two long-standing authorities in biochemical monitoring whose work has not been widely available in the West—until now.
Biochemical Monitoring of Sport Training expands the knowledge base in the field and paints a full and detailed picture of why and how biochemical monitoring is done. Those seeking scientific information to select and apply the best biochemical methods to monitor sport training need look no further—it’s all here. There are other books available on the subject, but Biochemical Monitoring of Sport Training is the only one that provides a combined package of theory and application. It provides in-depth explanations of what happens biochemically while athletes perform and it offers practical suggestions for how to actually biochemically monitor athletes yourself.
Part I includes a discussion of why biochemical monitoring of training is necessary and the opportunities it presents for both coaches and athletes.
Part II examines methodological limitations of studies in this area.
Part III presents how to apply biochemical methods to monitor training in the real world.
An essential reference and course text for exercise scientists, researchers, and elite-level coaches, Biochemical Monitoring of Sport Training provides access to the tools you need to optimize training and improve performance in a variety of sports.
