Combining the latest science and research with cutting-edge techniques and strategies, Athletic Movement Skills will show you how to

· develop multidirectional speed and power for any sport and any position,

· improve jumping and agility with effective plyometric progressions,

· harness and apply power in critical game or match situations,

· evaluate and correct posture and body position,

· reduce injuries and expedite rehabilitation and

· create functional strength progressions that will directly translate to on-field performance.

Hundreds of photo sequences and illustrations plus 10 detailed exercise progressions depict how to refine and perfect speed, agility, strength and power-related movements and skills.

Whether you are working with young or experienced, novice or elite athletes, Athletic Movement Skills is a must-have. It is the definitive development guide for anyone serious about sport performance.

About the Author:

Clive Brewer is a world-recognized expert in high-performance sports conditioning, athlete development and applied sports science. He 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, USA Football, Wimbledon tennis championships, the UK Strength and Conditioning Association, Scotland National Rugby League, Liverpool Ladies FC, the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) and IMG Academy. As head of strength and conditioning with Widnes Vikings Rugby League Club (2011-2014), he helped them achieve their highest Super League finish while reducing injuries by more than 18% each year. Brewer has also consulted with Sports Med global performance systems, supporting sports performance development for clients worldwide. He has held lead roles as the head of human performance (strength and conditioning, science and medicine) with the Rugby Football League and SportScotland's national program manager for athlete development.

Brewer is accredited by the UK Strength and Conditioning Association (UKSCA), the National Strength and Conditioning Association and the British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences as a support scientist. He is a chartered scientist with the Science Council in the UK and an original member of the British Olympic Association register of strength and conditioning coaches. In August 2015, he was awarded the fellowship of the UKSCA in recognition of his contribution to the industry.

As the IAAF strength and conditioning expert editor, Brewer was Scotland's first national strength and conditioning coach for track and field. He has worked in sports as diverse as tennis, soccer, rugby union, and bobsleigh at professional and international levels.

From 2007, Brewer worked with other specialists to research the best practice in designing an athlete development framework to underpin the UK coaching model. He has authored several papers and book chapters on applied sport science, training methods, and athletic development coaching and has written two books on training methods for coaches. He has presented at many international conferences, including the pre-Olympic Sports Science Congress, the U.S. Olympic Committee National Coaches Congress, the International Science in Rugby Coaching conference, the National Strength and Conditioning Association national conference and the European Strength and Conditioning conference.

A native of the UK, Brewer lives in the Tampa metropolitan area while working across Canada and the United States with the Toronto Blue Jays baseball organization.

Review:

Athletic Movement Skills is the definitive work on the subject. Clive Brewer has created a blueprint for excelling in any sport. Athletes, coaches, and trainers, if you’re serious about performance and injury prevention, I can think of no better investment.”

Mike Favre, M.Ed., CSCS, RSCC*D-- Director of Olympic Sports Strength & Conditioning, University of Michigan

“Athletic movement skills underpin performance in the majority of sports. Developing these capacities appropriately gives athletes a significant advantage. No one knows more about this topic than Clive Brewer. The wisdom in this book will give coaches and athletes the ability to stay a step ahead of their opposition. “

Ian Jeffreys, Ph.D., ASCC, CSCS,*D, RSCC*E, FNSCA, FUKSC-- Professor of Strength and Conditioning, University of South Wales
