About the books:


Injury Prevention and Movement Control aims to provide affordable, easily accessible and trustworthy information on how to reduce injuries that may come as a result of a range of physical exercise. It is relevant for everyone interested in staying active—from fitness enthusiasts to fitness professionals looking to improve their own performance, or the performance of the people they train.
 
It is clear that injury is no respecter of fashion and although new and exciting methods to train appear all the time within gyms, the body is still subject to its own limitations. These books will help readers gain a greater understanding of injury prevention methodology, helping us to stay injury free, healthy and active for longer.
 
Volume 1:
1.       Looking for the core
2.       Movement control
3.       Posture and alignment
 
Are you tired of being out of action with a constant influx of injuries? Worse still, do you find that you are constantly getting a recurrence of an old injury just as you think you are fully fit? It’s a problem that strikes many, from professional athletes to recreational exercisers.
 
This first volume in the Injury Prevention and Movement Control series gives a fresh insight into the possible causes of such imbalances and the precision and focus required to achieve true movement control. Stressing the importance of appropriately aligning the mind (software) with the body (hardware), Lincoln Blandford and The Performance Matrix team highlight basic strategies to reduce the risk of injury and become more aware of the independent movements of the body. All exercisers will find important topics to consider from this scientifically supported, practical and easily accessible guide, leading to reductions in injury and greater movement control.
 
Volume 2:
1.       Warm up
2.       Resistance Training
3.       Flexibility
 
This second volume in the Injury prevention and movement control range again pursues the desirable goal of remaining injury free through the consideration of movement quality.
 
Injuries, although often perceived as inevitable for the active, each have a root cause. If the influence of these causes can be limited, injury risk is reduced. In this volume Lincoln Blandford and The Performance Matrix team apply the importance of movement control into a practical setting, in particular its effect on warm-ups, flexibility and resistance training. If you really want to know how to avoid injuries, then unquestionably, this is the book for you
