Our guest shares his story of how he made a career working with athletes and then we dive in to his new project, a book to help everyone become more efficient athletes.
About our guest:
Internationally acclaimed strength and conditioning specialist Clive Brewer is the assistant director of high performance for the Toronto Blue Jays and has consulted with several other organizations around the globe, such as Manchester United FC and USA Football.
Before athletes can become strong and powerful, they need to master the movement skills required in sport. Athletic Movement Skills covers the underlying science and offers the prescriptive advice on bridging the gap between scientist and practitioner so coaches and athletes can work together to achieve dominance.
In Athletic Movement Skills, Brewer shares his high level of expertise drawn from the most current sport science research and champion-producing applications. Knowing the need for good technique in skills such as jumping, landing, accelerating, decelerating, and changing direction, Brewer includes hundreds of photos and illustrations to provide strong visual presentation of exercise progressions for developing jumping and plyometric skills, running speed and agility skills, and functional strength. Real-life examples and case studies across a spectrum of sports will help readers understand and apply information to achieve their athletic objectives.
