The National Sports Conference 2011

National Sports Conference
Aston Business School Conference Centre, Birmingham

Thursday 23rd June to Friday 24th June, 2011

British Colleges Sport (BCS) and Association of Colleges (AoC) are once again jointly hosting the National Sports Conference, supported by Sport England.

This year’s event will see the launch of the new National Sports Strategy for Colleges, as well as focusing on vital issues such as Sport England and Youth Sport Trust Policy for FE, School Games and reductions in entitlement funding and FESCo funding.

There will be a strong programme of keynote addresses, interactive workshops, informative seminars and quick update sessions, covering a whole range or relevant topics.

If you are a Head of Sport or a Practitioner working in Sport, the organisers promise you will gain a better understanding of how the national strategy will in future be delivered through a working partnership between BCS and AoC, new regional strategic groups and links to County Sport Partnerships at sub regional level.

    This book is an excellent reference for cyclists looking to add strength training to their routines. It is very well organized into sections showing the different sections of the body the exercises are for. Each exercise itself is documented to show you exactly what it will be working and how it helps your cycling form. It also shows you variations of each exercise which are often easier versions of the original exercise.

    The one area that could possibly be improved on is that it does not have a section that really gives you a workout program and the author calls this out in the first chapter and that the goal of the book is to help show you proper exercises and how to do them. This is good, but I find that, for beginners it might be helpful to have a small section showing how to use all these exercises in a routine to get maximum benefit. It is important to note that I said “for beginners” in that last sentence since this book is really for more advanced cyclists and as such the missing prescribed workouts section is not something I really miss that much. Personally I am looking at using these in a hybrid/modified version of the P-90X program combined with the The Cyclist’s Training Bible

    Buy this if you are a cyclist looking on taking your training up a notch. Particularly if you are looking to add exercises you can do in a gym, off the road, out of the dark in a season like the winter.
    Don’t buy this if you are a beginner looking for a book to help you get started in cycling or to get started on training a bit more seriously since this book is aimed at more serious cyclists.
