This is the official World Athletics (WA) Track & Field book and the most comprehensive guide on track & field currently available.
The book outlines the cross-disciplinary aspects of training in detail and presents the information as small training theory which can enhance understanding of the special training and movement theory of the various disciplines, which are also presented.
The reader will be introduced to the basics of training theory, such as main motor stress forms; adaptation and performance; training control; training methods; and general training concepts. The comprehensive training content also includes 96 games and exercises for coordination, flexibility, and strength development.
The book goes even further than training method by presenting comparisons of different disciplines, history of training, competition rules, phase structure, and technique, all backed by sports science.
It is a textbook for all athletes, coaches, trainers, and sports students and teachers from youth athletics to high-performance training and includes a foreword by WA President Sebastian Coe.
