Runner's World Guide to Injury Prevention
Runner's World Guide to Injury Prevention0 0 5 Scritto da: Dagny Barrios
The world of running-and running injury prevention-has evolved greatly in the last decade. New thinking on injury and recovery suggests that runners can continue to train while injured. And alternative practices--such as acupuncture, chiropractic, and massage--are now virtually mainstream and an essential part of any runner's injury arsenal. Not only is the sport dramatically more popular, but women runners and beginning runners--who are a large part of the growth--have very different needs in the areas of injury and health that have not been covered adequately in previous books. Research in sports medicine also has advanced.
All this-and much more-is covered in Runner's World Guide to Injury Prevention by Dagny Scott Barrios, quite simply the best, most authoritative guide in the field.
Here you'll find:
The most important stretches for runners--and why you should not stretch an injured muscleHow (and why) to change your biomechanics and stride lengthHow to incorporate cross-training to prevent and heal injuryThe most important strength-training exercises for runnersHow to cope with the mental side of injurySpecial concerns for young runners, women, and older runnersThe newest thinking in hydration
Beginners and veterans alike will benefit from this expert guidance from the cutting edge of sports medicine and science.
