Summary

Professional athletes' careers and livelihoods depend on results, so when they train they make sure to get the most from their training sessions. In The Strength and Conditioning Bible, experienced trainer Nick Grantham introduces you to performance-based conditioning, explaining why athletic-based strength and conditioning training programs are superior to all other training methods. By following the training S&C strategies and principles used by elite athletes he shows that, regardless of your current fitness and exercise experience, anyone can train like an athlete.

Providing a strong scientific rationale for an athletic approach to training so that you can develop a better understanding of physical preparation, The Strength and Conditioning Bible gives you the key elements of an integrated performance-conditioning program that will elevate your training program to a new level. Using this sixteen-week, four-stage plan that balances total-body strength, endurance, mobility, balance, coordination, and athleticism, you will be able to develop a customizable and realistic fitness program and enjoy productive and pain-free workouts for years to come.
