Review: Complete Guide to Sports Training

Wednesday, April 18th, 2012

I have always been a big fan of A&C Blacks Complete Guide to… series, so it was great to read over the ‘Complete Guide to Sports Training’ by John Shpherd.

The book is a very easy read with some great information for anyone who is considering training a sports person. Throughout the book there are training tips where John draws on his experience and history of working with athletes to illustrate points he has made in the main text. There are also boxes detailing key information for ease of reference. The book covers a range of key topics including conditioning principles, injury prevention, motor skill development, programming, and nutrition. This all comes together to give the reader a great overview of the areas that they should be looking at in order to improve an individuals sporting performance.

Overall I would say the book is very well laid out, an easy read and contains a great deal of information that could be used by a trainer working with sports people or alternatively by the sports person themselves. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone.
