The purpose of athletic training is to achieve the highest possible sports result (for a given individual). Training is efficient if this result is achieved with a minimal expenditure of time and energy. In accordance with the above statements, Science of Sports Training tells the reader how to achieve maximal results with minimum of effort. The book describes optimal sequence of types of efforts (exercises) in a workout, in a weekly cycle of workouts and in longer periods, and explains physiological basis for these arrangements. It covers all effective methods of developing any physical ability, skill or mental ability and it tells how and when to change the training loads, how to make training plans for any period of time (single workout, week, month, year, several years). You will learn, during a day and during a workout, when the best time is for technical, speed, strength, endurance, or flexibility exercises; when during a week should you do a given type of a workout; when and how much should you work on any ability or skill during an annual training plan. The examples, illustrating the principles of training and the methods of controlling it, are taken from sports with which most people are familiar (track and field, swimming, boxing, wrestling, gymnastics, and ball games). Furthermore, these examples are presented in such a way as to make it easy to apply the conclusions to any other sport. For example, the indicators of boxer's good or bad form described in this book apply equally to taekwon-do fighters or kick-boxers. The methods of controlling the training process described in this book do not require complicated equipment or technicians to make this information applicable in training.
