Exercises for Wheelchair Athletes

Optimum performance of an athlete requires two complementary abilities: skill and power.  All sports from ice skating to basketball share this feature.  This book describes exercises designed to develop power, particularly the speed component of power, in the upper extremities, trunk, and lower extremities.  It also includes exercises specifically for wheelchair athletes.

Skill is derived from both natural abilities and learned technical expertise.  The learned portion of skill takes years of training under the supervision of a qualified coach.

Similarly, power is derived from both natural abilities and developed muscle characteristics.  In addition to years of muscle conditioning, power requires an integrated program to develop its two complementary components, strength and speed.  While weight training develops strength, plyometrics develops the explosiveness called speed.

First successfully used in Eastern Europe, plyometrics is now generally accepted in the United States as a key to the training of successful championship athletes.  More recently it has become a part of the general public's exercise regimen.

Plyometrics conditions the body through dynamic, resistance exercises.  Plyometrics improves upper extremity and trunk power by using a weighted object such as a medicine ball to create the necessary resistance.  With a medicine ball, you can experience the entire range of motion which resembles that of your sport.  You can tailor your exercise program to match your training needs.  These sport-specific exercises are not only more efficient in developing the power you desire, they are also more interesting, more challenging, and more motivating.

This book will help you develop your own program suited to your training needs.
