Our book ! - "The Elastic Band Resistance" (in french)

The Elastic Band Resistance - A Scientific Approach to Performance, Health, and Fitness is the first book to explain the biomechanical and physiological principles that underlie elastic resistance and the value of this resistance in humans . At a time when sports equipment available to consumers, coaches and physical trainers are legion, the authors, both doctors in biomechanics and sports science, dispel misunderstandings and discard the misconceptions about elastic bands training. By combining theoretical explanations based on a hundred of scientific references and examples of practical applications, this book highlights the unsuspected qualities of resistance bands for all publics.

The Elastic Band Resistance - A Scientific Approach to Performance, Health, and Fitness addresses different aspects: sports performance to illustrate the potential gains in speed, strength and power, health to demonstrate interest in prevention and rehabilitation injury and fitness to explain the benefits on the musculoskeletal system of a workout with elastic bands for any public. A collection of illustrated exercises and training programs adapted to all are also available. As a guide, this book will explain many concepts while remaining accessible to larger numbers and creating a bridge between scientific knowledge and field applications.

The book is available in french on Amazon.fr or FNAC.com.
