Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Kurz, author of Stretching Scientifically (Stadion, 1987), presents a manual of East European training principles to elite athletes of the West. His nine chapters give an excellent overview of training for the development of speed, strength, flexibility, psychological preparation, recovery, and the testing and monitoring of skills. His text is logically organized and well indexed, but the prose contains some awkward phrasing and missing articles and would have benefited from additional illustrations. Kurz does not cover the basic exercise physiology or the fundamentals of physical training that Jack H. Wilmore does in Athletic Training and Physical Fitness (Allyn & Ba con, 1977), nor does he specify training regimens for individual sports. Still, this unique title is recommended for collec tions in physical education, coaching, and athletic training in academic and large public libraries.

From Scientific American

Science of Sports Training explains the Eastern European principles and methods of sports training that lead to individual peak performances without resorting to harmful or illegal methods such as doping. A key principle to achieving peak performances is the development and control of the athlete's own rational individualized training regimen. Kurz describes the optimum sequence of types of exercises in a workout, in a weekly cycle of workouts, or for longer periods, carefully explaining the physiological basis for the sequence.
