    This package includes the following:
    • Powerlifting, Second Edition, ebook
    • Online continuing education exam
    Powerlifting, Second Edition, provides a no-nonsense approach to training competitors in the sport, with over 100 exercises that promote the development of the three primary movements—the squat, bench press, and deadlift—and their related supplemental exercises. Dynamic warm-up routines and recovery techniques get your clients primed for training, making it a one-stop guide to powerlifting success. You’ll find six sex- and exercise-specific training programs, a 14-week competition program, and three 8-week off-season training programs. Precompetition checklists provide at-a-glance guides for tasks to complete and items to bring to a powerlifting meet.

    Powerlifting also helps guide you to fuel clients for maximum production, giving examples of the best sources of protein and carbohydrates as well as information on preworkout drinks and common supplements. The psychological side of the sport is addressed with mental health advice and visualization tools and recommendations to use during training and competition as well as during personal time.
