The importance of core health

Our understanding of the importance of core health for injury prevention, athletic performance and rehabilitation is increasing all the time.

With Core Assessment and Training, you will learn how to offer your clients safe and effective programmes by assessing each client’s baseline core function and then develop regimes to meet their individual needs.

This book covers not only core strength but also flexibility and plyometrics with photos, illustrations and instructions for more than 120 exercises.

Sample exercise routines and a table that lists the exercises by the muscles used, offer a basis for programme design and provide an on-the-spot reference.

The accompanying DVD features video demonstrations that help you review proper techniques and protocols for many of the exercises and assessments discussed in the book.

Core Assessment and Training is an invaluable applied reference for strength and conditioning coaches, personal trainers, athletic trainers, physical therapists and chiropractors.
