THE MANUAL VOL. 1, is the first publication from Central Virginia Sport Performance. In THE MANUAL VOL. 1, you will find chapters from ten individuals who have had an immense impact on everything we do at CVASP. Our hope with this book is that each reader takes something useful from the information presented that they can use to make their athletes perform better. Whether that is through respiratory muscle training (Chpt.10), velocity based training (Chpt. 7), or even training based on muscle fiber type (Chpt. 5).
Features of this book include:
- Quick and concise chapters that are easy to read.
- 161 pages of practical considerations for strength and conditioning coaches to use immediately with their athletes.
- In-depth examples and personal experiences from each author that the reader can easily apply to their own situations no matter what level the coach or athlete.
- Brief bios for each author at the end of their respective chapter that describes the impact they have had on the strength and conditioning field.
