Assessments for Sport and Athletic Performance Online CE Exam With Print Book

Assessments for Sport and Athletic Performance Online CE Exam With Print Book

$79.00 USD


Product Format
    This package includes the following:
    • Assessments for Sport and Athletic Performance book
    • Online continuing education exam
    Assessments for Sport and Athletic Performance is a streamlined guide through the process of performance-based evaluation. You’ll learn to identify appropriate tests for individual athletes and clients, making use of common low-cost equipment to administer the tests, interpret data, adjust training programs based on the results, and continually monitor training to maximize athletic performance.

    For each assessment, the text walks you through a step-by-step process and includes a script of directions to give the athlete or client being tested to ensure each test is performed correctly. You’ll find a variety of protocols that do not require complicated equipment and can be conveniently conducted in your normal training environment. You’ll be able to assess your athletes or clients in the following areas:
    • Anthropometrics and body composition
    • Flexibility and balance
    • Agility and sprinting
    • Power
    • Muscular strength and endurance
    • Cardiorespiratory fitness
    • External and internal training load
    • Perceptual well-being and physical readiness
    In addition, each assessment is accompanied by normative data to set baseline evaluations and to monitor progress over time. As a refreshing break from the typical complex tables, the normative data are displayed in modern, simplified figures that make it easy to quickly evaluate test results.

    After reading the book, certified professionals can take the companion CE exam to earn continuing education credits.
