Designed for strength and conditioning coaches, personal trainers and sports medicine professionals, The Anatomy of Speed provides an anatomical breakdown of the various components of speed development. Through a mixture of photos and detailed anatomical overlays, Parisi provides readers with expert advice to improve performance, insight into the psychological mechanisms of speed, as well as guidelines for effective speed training program design.
The practical nature of the book allows readers to gain access to customisable programming prescriptions for targeting specific goals such as acceleration, lateral change-of-direction or maximum velocity. This is complemented by in-depth interviews with experts in the field of human performance and biomechanics. Bill Parisi is an internationally-recognised fitness expert and is the founder and CEO of Parisi Speed School.
