Nutrition and Performance in Masters Athletes Book Excerpt:

Addresses the Aging Process and Its Effect on Sports Performance Age-related changes influence all physiological systems, including those used during exercise and sport. Highlighting masters athletes—older adults who train and compete in organized sports—Nutrition and Performance in Masters Athletes examines the extent to which regular physical training can impact these changes. This book bridges the gap between theory and practice, addressing nutritional, exercise and sport sciences, and the actual performance of masters athletes and older exercisers. It reviews in detail many age-related changes that occur in the physiological systems, provides implications of these changes for masters athletes, coaches and clinicians, explores scientifically-based methods to maximize sprint, strength and power, team sport players, endurance and ultra-endurance performance, and focuses on the unique nutritional needs of master athletes. Examines the Growing Body of Knowledge on Masters Athletes Each chapter has been written by a world-leading authority in their field. Contributors focus on a specific topic and discuss available research. Incorporating information from studies on younger and older athletes and healthy older non-athletes, they help determine the training and nutrition implications for sports medicine professionals and clinicians, masters athletes and coaches, and future research directions for academic and postgraduate students. The book includes material on endurance, ultra-endurance, speed, strength and power, and team sports athletes. Sections cover macronutrients (carbohydrate, fat and protein needs), micronutrients (vitamin and mineral needs), fluids and hydration; supplements and ergogenic aids, nutrition for chronic disease, and the training/nutrition needs of every type of masters athletes. Nutrition and Performance in Masters Athletes is highly recommended for medical and health professionals, fellow academics, postgraduates with an interest in masters athletes, as well as masters athlete coaches and masters athletes, and administrators wanting to assist their members.

The Masters Athlete Book Excerpt:

Masters athletes are those that continue to train and compete, typically at a high level, beyond the age of thirty-five and into middle and old age. As populations in the industrialized world get older and governments become increasingly keen to promote healthy aging and non-pharmacological interventions, the study of masters athletes enables us to better understand the benefits of, and motivations for, life-long involvement in physical activity. This is the first book to draw together current research on masters athletes. The Masters Athlete examines the evidence that cognitive skills, motor skills and physiological capabilities can be maintained at a high level with advancing age, and that age related decline is slowed in athletes that continue to train and compete in their later years. Including contributions from leading international experts in physiology, motor behaviour, psychology, gerontology and medicine, the book explores key issues such as: motivation for involvement in sport and physical activity across the lifespan evidence of lower incidence of cardiovascular disease, hypertension, and diabetes the maintenance of performance with age. Challenging conventional views of old age, and with important implications for policy and future research, this book is essential reading for students and practitioners working in sport and exercise science, aging and public health, human development, and related disciplines.

With an emphasis on screening and assessment, coupled with basic principles of exercise and training programs, students will learn to safely administer exercise programs that meet the needs of older adults—in any stage of aging and at various levels of physical activity—to contribute to increased health and quality of life for all. Chapter-opening quotes bring content to life with insights from scientists, fitness professionals, and other experts. Chapter objectives, new to this edition, help readers to understand and apply key concepts. Questions to Consider at the end of each chapter provide tools for reflection, while references direct students to additional reading and opportunities for further learning. An appendix offers easy access to assessments and forms, including a Three-Day Nutritional Assessment form and a Client Report form, preparing readers for professional use in their careers with older adult clients. Physiology of Exercise and Healthy Aging, Second Edition, delivers a thorough discussion of the physiological effects of aging and illustrates the power of exercise as a tool to reduce or offset the effects of aging in order to improve the quality of life enjoyed by our aging population.

Secrets of the Squat Snatch Book Excerpt:

Why learn the secrets of the squat snatch? The answer is obvious if you’re an Olympic-style weightlifting competitor—or a coach, fan or history buff of this sport. It’s the most authoritatively endorsed book ever written on this lift. But did you know that the squat snatch is not only the best single test of strength, speed and coordination. It’s also the single best exercise to develop these empowering attributes. According to Dr. Allison Brager who is a neuroscientist, as well as a competitive CrossFit athlete and author of Meathead: Unraveling the Athletic Brain: The Secrets of the Squat Snatch is the complete tool kit for athletes and their coaches who strive to elegantly channel—while enhancing—their explosive neuro-muscular power through this standard Olympic lift. You can, and ideally should do a lot of other exercises, but the one you’ll get the most benefit from for time spent is the squat snatch. This book, therefore, is a must read if you’re a CrossFit trainee,An athlete who wants to excel in another active sport,Anyone who wants to enhance his or her explosive neuro-muscular power for any good and just purpose. I’m Dr. Peter T George. My weightlifting buddies know me as Pete George—that’s the name I’m listed as in the Olympic record books. I was blessed to have been coached by Larry Barnholth. He was the legendary coach who figured out how the squat snatch should be performed to achieve maximum poundage with stability. He then produced champions who broke records in the snatch with the squat style when most of the world’s lifters were using the split style. In 1950 when Larry was besieged with enquires for his “secrets” to mastering this lift, I helped him write and publish the first edition of this book. TOMMY KONO AND DAVE SHEPPARD were the first two purchasers of the Secrets of the Squat Snatch. After reading it, both went on to beat official world records on this lift. In fact, Tommy was declared by the International Weightlifting Federation to have been the greatest weightlifter of the twentieth Century. How much credit should this hip pocket manual get for their worldwide successes? No one can say for sure, but Dave personally told me that it was very helpful to him in perfecting his nearly flawless style. Tommy had very carefully and neatly marked up the ideas he wanted to remember in his copy to the extent that the Stark Center for Physical Culture and Sports at the University of Texas obtained his original copy to preserve in their archives. I hope they’ll display it or a copy in the room they have dedicated to him in their museum. Tommy’s phenomenal success as a weightlifter is even more impressive when you consider he never had a personal coach, although he obtained as much information as he could acquire from Larry Barnholth in their several meetings and through their postal correspondence. Tommy was my close personal friend for over 60 years. He stayed active on the world weightlifting scene—officiating, coaching and writing—until very near his death in 2016. He kept urging me to republish this book. He claimed there was none simpler for a beginner to quickly learn the squat snatch nor one more authoritative for the experienced lifer to perfect his or her style. I’m sorry I did not publish it sooner, but it is for the above reasons that I have dedicated this Vintage Edition of the Secrets of the Squat Snatch to my dear friend and Olympic teammate Tommy Kono.
