Train to perform at the highest level with the lowest risk of injury. The enhanced e-book edition of New Functional Training for Sports, Second Edition, produces the best results on the court, field, track, and mat, not just in the weight room.
Michael Boyle, one of the world’s leading sport performance coaches, presents the concepts, methods, exercises, and programs that maximize athletes’ movements in competition. A series of functional assessments help in determining the design of a specific plan for each athlete. Self-reinforcing progressions in exercises for the lower body, core, upper body, and ultimately total body give athletes the balance, proprioception, stability, strength, and power they require for excelling in their sports. Sample programs assist in the customization process and ensure each aspect of preparation for physical performance.
Boyle also draws on the latest research and his wealth of experience to offer programming advice and recommendations on foam rolling, stretching, and dynamic warm-ups.
The enhanced e-book format for New Functional Training for Sports, Second Edition, goes beyond traditional exercise descriptions and explanations, incorporating full-color, high-definition composites of foundational movements and links to video demonstrations, commentary, and analysis of key exercises. The 71 video clips show how to perform exercises for lower body; core; upper body; plyometrics; Olympic lifting; and foam rolling, stretching, and dynamic warm-ups.

New Functional Training for Sports Second Edition could just be the very best book I have ever read on strength training and conditioning for sports and fitness. The text is divided into 11 chapters. The book begins with a discussion on making training more functional. Here, Boyle covers the latest science on the topic and puts to bed some of the silly circus-style training that is mistakenly thought to be functional training. In this chapter, I appreciated the simplicity of his approach to strength conditioning: stability for the stabilisers, strength for the muscles involved in the sport, emphasise unilateral strength development, high emphasis on free weights, and protection from injury.
