Timing Resistance Training teaches you how to work with athletes to manipulate their internal muscle clocks so they can train and perform at their best every day—right down to the specific time of day that is best for their body. You will learn to view the muscles as proactive independent physiological systems that can be trained to “think” by delivering timing cues that tell muscles when to activate key physiological actions that influence the entire body.
Next, you will learn how to cue those internal clocks with purposeful training methods like biomechanical pairing of exercises, complex training, and concurrent training. The book addresses rest as an integral training variable and explores the timing of activity–rest cycles versus recuperation only. The text also discusses the concept of undertraining, an intentional program design adjustment that uses the ability of muscle to anticipate training.
The final chapters offer tools to create training programs for strength, power, and flexibility. These chapters include sample single-session workouts, weekly workouts, and long-term programming routines. Approved by ACE, ACSM, AFPA, Cooper, Canfitpro, ECA, ISSA, NFPT, NETA, and many more!
