Anatomy & Yoga: Muscles in Action
Anatomy & Yoga is a complete work that introduces the yoga tradition from a practical and scientific point of view. It is aimed at students, teachers, people who practice yoga, and those who want to familiarize themselves with this millennia-old practice. Combining science and tradition, this book explains the history of yoga--the classical texts and their traditions--50 classical yoga postures (asanas) as well as variations and adaptations for safe practice; proper breathing, including basic breathing exercises (pranayama); and the important yoga aspect of inner development. Along with clear and informative content, this book contains an anatomical and physiological description of the human body and relevant information about the energetic anatomy--in other words, an explanation of the human body and the chakras. For each asana, the precautions and the gained physical, psychological, and energetic benefits are listed. In addition, each asana is accompanied by images illustrating the exercise and anatomical drawings showing in detail the main muscles used in each posture. With information on relaxation practice, mudras, and meditation, Anatomy & Yoga allows you to penetrate a little deeper into yoga and, starting from the physical discipline, helps you experience yoga as a spiritual discipline.

Endure: Mind, Body and the Curiously Elastic Limits of Human Performance
`This book is AMAZING!' - MALCOLM GLADWELL `If you want to gain insight into the mind of great athletes, adventurers, and peak performers then prepare to be enthralled by Alex Hutchinson's Endure.' - BEAR GRYLLS How high or far or fast can humans go? And what about individual potential: what defines a person's limits? From running a two-hour marathon to summiting Mount Everest, we're fascinated by the extremes of human endurance, constantly testing both our physical and psychological limits. In Endure Alex Hutchinson, Ph.D., reveals why our individual limits may be determined as much by our head and heart, as by our muscles. He presents an overview of science's search for understanding human fatigue, from crude experiments with electricity and frogs' legs to sophisticated brain imaging technology. Going beyond the traditional mechanical view of human limits, he instead argues that a key element in endurance is how the brain responds to distress signals-whether heat, or cold, or muscles screaming with lactic acid-and reveals that we can train to improve brain response. An elite distance runner himself, Hutchinson takes us to the forefront of the new sports psychology - brain electrode jolts, computer-based training, subliminal messaging - and presents startling new discoveries enhancing the performance of athletes today, showing us how anyone can utilize these tactics to bolster their own performance - and get the most out of their bodies.

Becoming Boston Strong: One Woman's Race to Run and Conquer the World's Greatest Marathon
Named One of the Best Nonfiction Books to Read in 2019 by Woman's Day It's 2004 and twentysomething Amy Noelle Roe is living by herself in Portland, Oregon, with few friends, little money, and no job. It's not her year. With lots of free time on her hands, she remembers watching the Boston Marathon years ago and, inspired by that memory, decides to join a marathon training group, hoping that running 26.2 miles will give her something show for an otherwise entirely unproductive time in her life. A few months later, she crosses the finish line but is far from a Boston qualifying-time. But Amy has caught the marathon bug, and is determined to qualify for Boston, even if it's just as a squeaker, a runner who just manages a BQ time. Eleven marathons later, and Amy finally squeaks by, signing up for the 2011 Boston Marathon. She completes it, qualifying again for the following year, and then again for 2013, the fated year of the Boston Marathon Bombing. Due to an injury, Amy crosses the 2013 finish line in a little over four hours, minutes before the bombs goes off. Her world is forever changed as she is shaken to her core. Becoming Boston Strong is Amy's journey of falling in love with the Boston Marathon and its community, for better or for worse. It chronicles the ups and downs of her training, delving into the mystical appeal of the greatest marathon in the world and how it attracts those who return to it year after year. Hilarious and heartfelt, Becoming Boston Strong is for every person who ever dreamed of belonging to something bigger than themselves.

This book demonstrates how media technologies shape amateur sports and how some of these sports are modified. The author uses an innovative measuring approach to analyze how people use media technologies in conjunction with sports and how their relationship with physical activity is affected by the ever-present influence of the media. The research used includes a meta-theoretical analysis of the current mediatization theory, as well as quantitative and qualitative empirical research. The author integrates these aspects into the new concept of media saturation, supplementing the current theory and contributing to the wider body of knowledge in the field of media and physical activity. The book analyzes different perspectives in an interdisciplinary examination, ranging from media and sport researchers to scholars in culture studies, sociology, and psychology.

In recent years recovery has become a sports and fitness buzzword. Anyone who works out or competes at any level is bombarded with the latest recovery products and services: from drinks and shakes to compression sleeves, foam rollers, electrical muscle stimulators, and sleep trackers. In Good to Go, acclaimed FiveThirtyEight science writer Christie Aschwanden takes readers on an entertaining and enlightening tour through this strange world. She investigates whether drinking Gatorade or beer after training helps or hinders performance; she examines the latest trends among athletes, from NFL star Tom Brady's infrared pajamas to gymnast Simone Biles' pneumatic compression boots to swimmer Michael Phelps's cupping ritual; and she tests some of the most controversial methods herself, including cryochambers, float tanks, and infrared saunas. At a time when the latest recovery products and services promise so much, Good to Go seeks answers to the fundamental question: Do any of them actually help the body recover and achieve peak performance?

Running with a Police Escort: Tales from the Back of the Pack
In the fall of 2012, quirky and cat-loving Cleveland librarian Jill Grunenwald got an alarming email from her younger sister: her sister was very concerned with Jill's weight and her overall mental and physical health. Having always struggled with her weight, Jill was currently hitting the scales at more than three hundred pounds. Right then, Jill looked in the mirror and decided that she needed to make a life-style change, pronto. She enrolled in Weight Watchers and did something else that she the girl who avoided gym class like the plague in high school never thought she'd do; Jill started running. And believe it or not, it wasn't that bad. Actually, it was kind of fun. Three months later, Jill did the previously unthinkable and ran her very first 5k at the Cleveland Metropolitan Zoo. Battling the infamous hills of the course, Jill conquered her fears and finished but in dead last. Yep, the police were reopening the streets behind her. But Jill didn't let that get her down because when you run for your health and happiness, your only real competition is yourself. Six years and more than one hundred pounds lost later, Jill is still running and racing regularly, and she is a proud member of the back of the pack in every race that she has entered. In this newly updated edition Running with a Police Escort, Jill chronicles her racing adventures, proving that being a slow runner takes just as much guts and heart as being an Olympic champion. At turns heartbreaking and hilarious, Running with a Police Escort is for every runner who has never won a race but still loves the sport.

Applied Core Conditioning
Applied Core Conditioning contains all the information necessary to help design, prescribe and programme core conditioning strategies for those who wish to remain well-conditioned and to prevent injury, and for those undergoing rehabilitation. The knowledge that eighty percent of us all will experience low back pain at some point in our lives should be motivation enough to take conditioning and preventative steps via an effective applied core conditioning programme. The book presents sport-specific solutions for exercise selection, with programme design, sets, repetitions and loading all discussed in detail, in addition to a chapter presenting six different case studies that reflect the challenges of rehabilitating debilitating injuries like prolapsed disc, pars defect and hamstring tendinopathy, amongst others. Effective rehabilitation strategies are presented in detail to provide an insight into recovery and strengthening concepts.

The Warm-Up: Maximize Performance and Improve Long-Term Athletic Development
Not all athletes train in the same way. But it's rare to see any athlete workout without warming up. The Warm-Up is the first book to describe the science of the warm-up and provide guidelines on how to maximise its effectiveness. This is done through the use of the RAMP system. The RAMP system - Raise, Activate, Mobilise and Potentiate - looks at the warm-up not only as preparation for the upcoming session, but also the longer term benefits it can have on athletic development. RAMP has become a standard warm-up system recommended by the United Kingdom Strength and Conditioning Association (UKSCA). This essential guide provides coaches and athletes with a library of activities they can incorporate into their training to develop unique warm-ups. Coaches also have the option of using the five sample RAMP warm-up programmes, which can be used for a variety of sports and athlete training levels. The Warm-Up also features over 160 diagrams and photos to enhance the text and provide readers with direction for the various drills and exercises. There are also 17 video clips to demonstrate movement patterns of the Raise phase.

The Practice Of Natural Movement: Reclaim Power, Health, and Freedom
Try to imagine an out-of-shape tiger stepping on an exercise machine to get a workout. It doesn't make any sense, does it? Wild animals simply move the way nature intended, and they become powerful, healthy, and free in the process. So why should it be any different for us? We have become 'zoo-humans', separated from nature and living movement-impoverished, unnatural lifestyles. As a result, we are suffering physically, mentally, and spiritually. In The Practice of Natural Movement, Le Corre demonstrates our innate and versatile ability to perform practical and adaptable movements.

Running Up That Hill: The highs and lows of going that bit further
Running Up That Hill is a celebration of endurance running. Of running ridiculous distances - through cities, over mountains and across countries. Distances most people couldn't even imagine. But sports presenter Vassos Alexander is hooked! Why else would he run an ultra in Paris, backwards, having missed the start? Why head to Wales for the world's hardest mountain race with a badly sprained ankle? And why follow in some unforgiving, ancient footsteps and attempt the oldest and toughest footrace on earth, the 153-mile Spartathlon? There's joy to be found here. Really there is. Vassos recalls his own assaults on these gruelling races, along with ultra-running legends including Scott Jurek, Jasmin Paris, Kilian Jornet, Mimi Anderson and Dean Karnazes. They all testify to the transformative power of endurance running. It's about the astonishing highs that come from pushing your body to the limit. The confidence and peace when you challenge yourself and succeed. All told, this is a cracking tale of what keeps ultra-distance runners running, mile after mile after mile.

Forever Painless: End Chronic Pain and Reclaim Your Life in 30 Minutes a Day
End chronic pain-for good-with this practical guide from the PBS personality behind Classical Stretch and author of the New York Times bestseller Aging Backwards. Chronic pain is the most common cause of long-term disability in the United States. Twenty percent of American adults accept back spasms, throbbing joints, arthritis aches, and other physical pain as an inevitable consequence of aging, illness, or injury. But the human body is not meant to endure chronic pain. Miranda Esmonde-White has spent decades helping professional athletes, ballet dancers, and Olympians overcome potentially career-ending injuries and guiding MS patients and cancer survivors toward pain-free mobility. Now, in Forever Painless, she shows everyone how to heal their aching bodies and live pain free. The root of nearly all pain is movement-or lack thereof. We need to move our bodies to refresh, nourish, and revitalize our cells. Without physical activity, our cells become stagnant and decay, accelerating the aging process and causing pain. People who suffer chronic pain often become sedentary, afraid that movement and activity will make things worse, when just the opposite is true: movement is essential to healing. In Forever Painless, Miranda provides detailed instructions for gentle exercise designed to ease discomfort in the feet and ankles, knees, hips, back, and neck-allowing anyone to live happier, healthier, and pain-free no matter their age.
