Summary "Athletic Strength for Women is the first training manual to address the specific physiological, biomechanical, and anatomical needs of female athletes. More than 120 targeted exercises and drills are provided to improve: throwing, striking, swinging, and other upper-body skills; starting, stopping, jumping, cutting, turning, pivoting, and other lower-body maneuvers; and overall power and speed." "In-season, off-season, and preseason programs are included for the most popular sports. General fitness and sport-specific performance tests are accompanied by normative tables that enable athletes to gauge their strengths and weaknesses against those of their peers and to set improvement goals."--BOOK JACKET
