Fully revised and updated throughout, the new edition also includes over two hundred new references from the current research literature.

Bridging the traditional gap between sports science research and practice, each chapter features guidelines for evidence-based best practice as well as recommendations for approaches to physical preparation to meet the specific needs of team sports players.
