Exercise Programming Science and Practice 2nd edition

2nd Edition

Tony Leyland and Carmen Bott

“Scientific rigour is a focus of this textbook. The accuracy is excellent and the information organized well and clearly presented. The authors have done a thorough job of ensuring the material is referenced. Topics, rarely found in other textbooks, like Fundamental Movement Patterns, Resistance Training, Advanced Training, and Aerobic Conditioning and High-Intensity Interval Training can be found here. The text develops thought processes appropriately and builds from anatomical and physiological concepts to more advanced concepts. One of its strong points is its clear organization of a wealth of material; indeed, it would likely take three or four textbooks to accomplish what this text has put together. An excellent student resource that could find a useful place on the trainer’s bookshelf.”

Dr. Gregory R. duManoir, PhD, CSEP CEP. Instructor, School of Health & Exercise Sciences, Faculty of Health & Social Development, University of British Columbia Okanagan Campus.
