THE MANUAL VOL. 3, is the third publication from Central Virginia Sport Performance. In THE MANUAL VOL. 3, you will find ten unique chapters from ten world class individuals who have had an immense impact on everything we have done, and will continue to do here, at Central Virginia Sport Performance. As with everything that we produce, we are hopeful that this book will provide useful and applicable information to not only assist the readers in helping their athletes perform better, but also drive better conversations between practitioner. Whether that is through evaluating what our Scope of Practice actually is (Chapter 1), breaking down the Key Movements in Sprinting (Chapter 5), or even looking at the supplements we may choose to advise our athletes to utilize (Chapter 9) we hope that at least one of these chapters can assist the great coaches who have been involved with CVASP in helping their athletes reach their goals.
Features of this book include:
- Quick and concise chapters that are easy to read.
- 202 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.
