Develop strength, power, coordination, balance, and core stability using the medicine ball and stability ball exercises included in Strength Ball Training: Enhanced Edition. Compatible with iOS devices – iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch – using the iBooks or Kindle app, it offers the easy way to build your own strength ball program. The 142 exercises, accompanied by 256 full-color images and 53 video clips, develop strength, power, balance, and core stability. The book is written by Lorne Goldenberg, who has worked as a strength and conditioning coach for the Florida Panthers, Ottawa Senators, St. Louis Blues, Chicago Blackhawks, and Colorado Avalanche, among other hockey teams.
Preferred by elite athletes, fitness experts, and strength and conditioning specialists, these exercises train the body as a linked system instead of targeting muscles in isolation. Exercises start with the core, where most movements are initiated, and then move out to the periphery, combining strength and balance in all the major muscle groups and the supporting muscles. The exercise finder links directly to the exercises you choose, including even the most complex and advanced strength ball exercises required for improving power and stability. Meanwhile, the photos, slideshows, and video clips display proper technique in an ideal package that delivers visual demonstrations and exercise descriptions seamlessly.
Strength Ball Training: Enhanced Edition also includes a sample 16-week program with an excellent array of strength, flexibility, and balance challenges that may also be customized so you can design your own strength ball program. Purchase this e-book with video through Amazon’s Kindle store or the Apple iBookstore. It is also available via Barnes & Noble for use on the NOOK Color or NOOK Tablet.
