Practical Programming offers a different approach to exercise programming than that typically found in other exercise texts. Based on a combined 60 years of academic expertise, elite-level coaching experience, and the observation of thousands of novice trainees, the authors present a chronological analysis of the response to exercise as it varies through the training history of the athlete, one that reflects the realities of human physiology, sports psychology, and common sense. Contrary to the one-size-fits-all models of periodization offered elsewhere, Practical Programming explains the differences in response to exercise commonly observed between athletes at the novice, intermediate, and advanced levels, explains these differences in the context of the relevant exercise science, and presents new training models that actually work for athletes at all levels of experience. Complete with new, innovative graphical representations of cutting-edge concepts in exercise programming, Practical Programming is sure to become a standard reference in the field of exercise and human performance.

The Barbell Prescription: Strength Training for Life After 40 directly addresses the most pervasive problem faced by aging humans: the loss of physical strength and all its associated problems - the loss of muscle mass, bone mineral loss and osteoporosis, hip fractures (a terminal event for many older people), loss of balance and coordination, diabetes, heart disease related to a sedentary lifestyle, and the loss of independence. The worst advice an older person ever gets is, Take it easy. Easy makes you soft, and soft makes you dead. The Barbell Prescription maps an escape from the usual fate of older adults: a logical, programmed approach to the hard work necessary to win at the extreme sport of Aging Well. Unlike all other books on the subject of exercise for seniors, The Barbell Prescription challenges the motivated Athlete of Aging with a no-nonsense training approach to strength and health - and demonstrates that everybody can become significantly stronger using the most effective tools ever developed for the job.

Strength and conditioning specialist Joe Kenn draws upon the three strength disciplines; weightlifting, powerlifiting, and body building, as well as training principles of traditional periodization and high-intensity training, to define the "Tier System" of athletic-based strength training. The tier system promotes training athletes on a rotation of movements (total body, upper body, lower body) rather than training body parts. The result is an integrated, "whole-body" strength training program with greater real-world and sport-appropriate applicability.The book explores an overview of the system, and provides annual plan development, training cycles, and daily and weekly plans. Ideal for coaches and trainers of football, basketball, track & field, wrestling, gymnastics and any sport requiring maximum and explosive strength.

Choose health. Choose strength. Choose the StrongPath. Choosing the StrongPath is a book about the most insidious health crisis in the world, Sarcopenia, a muscle-wasting and frailty disease. It impacts all of us as we age, unless we proactively prevent it. As a world-renowned investigator and case builder, Fred Bartlit has done this once again with this book. He and coauthor Steven Droullard, along with muscle physiology expert Dr. Marni Boppart, want to share a little known fact with the world: You don’t have to fall apart as you get older. Through carefully calibrated progressive strength training and supporting nutrition, you can stave off sarcopenia, along with dozens of other age-related illnesses. ​Using scientific evidence and real-life case studies, Choosing the StrongPath offers a clear path away from a steady decline in the last third of your life and toward a healthier, happier you.
