Strength Band Training 3rd Edition Online CE Exam With Print Book

Strength Band Training 3rd Edition Online CE Exam With Print Book

$110.95 CAD


Product Format
    This package includes the following:
    • Strength Band Training, Third Edition, book
    • Online continuing education exam
    Strength Band Training gives you the tools to help your clients maximize their strength, speed, and flexibility—whether they are in the gym, at home, or on the road. With more than 160 exercises, you will discover why strength bands are the ultimate tool for targeting, isolating, rehabilitating, and developing every major muscle group.

    The book is organized to group exercises by upper and lower body strengthening, joint and muscle isolation, core stability, flexibility, and total body fitness. The full-color photos throughout the book showcase both flat bands and tubing. You’ll also find a strength assessment index to measure progress, chapters addressing training for older adults and rehabilitation, training tips connecting research to specific exercises, and injury prevention guidelines throughout.

    Elastic resistance exercises apply resistance in multiple directions—something free weights and machines cannot do—for routines that can simulate sport-specific demands, strengthen the core, or help clients prevent or recover from common injuries. The book has a total of 27 different programs designed for optimal fitness, team sport training, individual sport training, or rehabilitation.

    After reading the book, certified professionals can take the companion CE exam to earn continuing education credits.
