Through fascinating interviews with veterans and historical photographs, Black Knights is the story of the men and women who served in the training program at Tuskegee Army Air Field from 1941 to 1946. The pilots' stories are here, but so are the experiences of the mechanics, band members, armorers, staff officers, nurses, and more that proved that they had courage and perseverance, not only in war, but in peacetime as well.
The story of Pan Am is as much the story of president Juan T. Trippe as it is an account of airplanes, pilots, flight attendants, and
glamorous destinations. As the company moved throughout the world building airfields from jungles, crossing oceans, and forcing
the development of new airplanes, it was Trippes airline and his vision. A global pioneer, Pan Am was the first airline to use radio
communications, to employ cabin attendants and serve meals aloft, and to complete an around-the-world flight. The companys
achievements were legendary, but its failures, tragedies, and disasters were also part of a complex corporate life.
Many heroes and heroines of the air came from Florida. Even those who were not Floridians by birth spent time flying in the ideal conditions that Florida provided. Pioneers, such as Charles Lindbergh, Amelia Earhart, Peter Sones, and Jacqueline Cochran, all took to the air over Florida.
This book provides clear guidelines, an evidence base and a theoretical framework for proven effective soccer training.
Includes:planning seasonal training to peak at the right time training for strength, speed, aerobic and anaerobic fitness designing appropriate sessions for training and rehabilitation best methods for recovery from exercise and reducing injury risk preparation for play in different environmental conditions evaluating the effectiveness of training programmes diet, sleep, lifestyle, young players and long-term development.
Clear explanations of the physiological concepts and sport science research evidence are given throughout, and the book contains many examples to illustrate the training principles in practice. This is an essential text for students of the game and a valuable resource for coaches, physical trainers and sport scientists working in soccer (football).
Bridging the gap between research, theory and practice, these methods can be used by coaches, sport scientists and fitness coaches to assess and improve:styles of play, technical ability and physical fitness objective performance feedback to players the development of specific training routines use of available notation software, video analysis and manual systems understanding of current academic research in soccer notational analysis.
This is the first book to focus exclusively on football, and is based on the authors' extensive experience in academic and professional match analysis.
Physiology and practical work is now a compulsory element of sports and exercise science. These texts have been developed as key resources for lecturers and students of kinanthropometry, sports science, human movement and exercise physiology.
The well-illustrated manuals provide:
* help in planning and conduct of practical sessions
* comprehensive theoretical background on each topic and up-to-date information so that there is no need for additional reading
* seven entirely new chapters providing a balance between kinanthropometry and physiology
* eleven stand-alone chapters in each volume enabling the reader to pick out topics of interest in any order
* a wide range of supporting diagrams, photographs and tables.
A complete one-stop resource, this set presents laboratory procedures next to real-life practical examples, each supported with appropriate data. In addition, each chapter is supplemented by a complete review of contemporary literature, as well as theoretical overviews, offering an excellent basic introduction to each topic.
