Timing Resistance Training : Programming the Muscle Clock for Optimal Performance Paperback / softback



Sport scientists have known since periodization training first emerged that timing is critical to achieving peak athletic performance.

Timing Resistance Training for Peak Performance goes beyond this to guide you through the premise of muscle clocks and the manipulation of those clocks to control and improve muscle performance. Not just another periodization book, this essential text teaches you how to manipulate these muscle clocks so you can train and perform at your best every day.

The text teaches you how to view muscles as systems that can be trained to "think" by delivering timing cues that tell them when to activate key actions that influence the entire body. Following this, the text shows you how to cue those internal clocks with purposeful training methods like biomechanical pairing of exercises, complex training and concurrent training.

The books also discusses rest as an integral training variable and the concept of undertraining. The final chapters offer tools for you to create your own training programmes for strength, power and flexibility.

As well as, sample single-session workouts, weekly workouts and long-term programming routines. With Timing Resistance for Peak Performance, you can become more purposeful in planning and utilizing strategic timing to get the most out of muscle clocks to achieve optimal performance.
