9780736067928: Youth Strength Training:Programs for Health, Fitness and Sport (Strength & Power for Young Athlete)

The benefits of strength training for youth are clearly documented. Yet teachers, fitness instructors, and youth coaches are often not sure how to proceed, and they end up watering down adult versions of strength-training programs.

That is definitely not the way to go. But authors Avery Faigenbaum and Wayne Westcott, with their 50 years of combined experience in teaching youth strength-training classes and coaching, can tell you the way to go—and back it with the most current research on instructional techniques and program design for youth.

Long recognized as leading authorities on strength training, Faigenbaum and Westcott guide you in designing efficient, enjoyable, and productive programs for kids of varying abilities in elementary school (ages 7 to 10), middle school (11 to 14), and high school (15 to 18). You will focus first on broad-based, balanced muscle development, and then move into comprehensive, sport-specific strength-training programs.

In addition, Youth Strength Training will teach you

- productive protocols for warming up and cooling down;

- procedures for enhancing joint flexibility;

- innovative ways to incorporate resistance exercises into physical education classes, sport practice sessions, and exercise facilities; and

- proper exercise technique for 111 resistance exercises using weight stack machines, free weights, medicine balls, elastic bands, and body-weight resistance.

Much has changed since the authors first wrote a book on strength training for youth, and those changes—including information in the areas of nutrition, hydration, and recovery to maximize the effects of strength training and minimize the risks of overtraining—are incorporated in this book. Additional changes, based on the authors' studies, are reflected in workout frequency, exercise repetitions, related training components, and other factors that affect program design and conditioning results. All programs were fashioned with the latest NASPE standards in mind.

Faigenbaum and Westcott have included new information on periodization and long-term planning, perceived exertion scale for youth, overtraining and undertraining, dynamic warm-ups and static stretches, new exercises, effective instruction of youth, and plyometrics.

Through strength training, kids as young as 7 can safely develop a strong musculoskeletal system that can help them improve their health and fitness and also withstand the rigors of sport participation.

Youth Strength Training is the definitive source to guide you in designing and overseeing the programs of the kids you work with, whether you're in a school, fitness center, or home setting. If you want to see high rates of strength development and spark a lifelong interest in strength-building activities, rely on Youth Strength Training.

Descrizione libro Human Kinetics Publishers, United States, 2009. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. 2nd Revised edition. Language: English . Brand New Book. The research is clear: children as young as seven can gain significant benefits for health, fitness and sport participation through a sound, scientifically-based strength-training program. Authors Avery Faigenbaum and Wayne Westcott are recognized as leading authorities on fitness and in this book they use their extensive experience as teachers, professors, researchers, athletes and coaches to provide readers with the most effective and safe programs possible. Crucially, this book is designed and written specifically for young people; it s not just another watered-down adult title. While the first edition focused on the safety and efficacy of youth strength training, this new edition evidences the authors new research for designing more efficient, enjoyable, productive and practical programs of strength exercise for young people of different ages and abilities. Today, one out of three children are challenged by excessive body fat and these boys and girls are poorly suited for endurance-type exercise which they are typically asked to perform and which they are typically avoid at all costs. Fortunately, Youth Strength Training provides a myriad of resistance exercises which they tend to enjoy more, most likely because they compare more favorably with their lighter peers and the training effects are highly reinforcing (looking better, feeling better, functioning better).
