  1. Biggest Pre-season Blunders (eBook)

    Sports science has come a long way in recent years. While sophisticated GPS tracking and a full time sports science division might be outside the budget for most clubs, there are plenty of high performance activities that a club can implement to get their team fit, strong, and reduce injury risk in the season ahead. The great news is that most of them don’t cost a thing.

    Each chapter of this guide highlights one of the four most common training errors we see at clubs which sabotage the performance and success of their athletes. We also provide solutions and alternatives along the way.
  2. Perfect Pre-Season (eBook)
    Anyone who has worked in sport knows that "perfect" rarely happens. Interruptions, injuries, and bumps in the road inevitably disrupt whatever we as coaches plan.

    This book is designed to help you build a plan that can withstand these hiccups and deliver the best possible pre-season. Our goal is to give you the resources you need to deliver a robust strength and conditioning approach to have your team in the best possible shape by round 1.
