Introduction to Russian Weightlifting Library Books {translations from Russian to English} The Works of Yuri Verkhoshansky: / Fundamentals of Special Strength Training in Sport / Programming and Organization of Training Verkhoshansky is one of the founding fathers of Soviet sport science. His books are essentially reviews on various aspects of strength training for sport of Soviet era literature. Verkhoshansky is one of the originators of, but who is given most credit for popularizing the ‘depth – jump’ to develop explosive strength. His main contribution to sport science consists of ingenious identification, categorization and organization of the basic elements of dynamic sports. And, based on this categorization and organization coaches can select the best exercises and methods for training. Concepts for training in these sports are developed around the requisite contribution of various skills and physical qualities. Many concepts/terms which are now commonplace were coined, i.e., invented, by the Soviet school of sport science. Here are some examples of the these terms which are widely used without knowledge of whence they originated: speed strength; starting strength; explosive strength; acceleration strength; explosive – isometric force; explosive ballistic strength; explosive – reactive ballistic; periodization; plyometrics; dynamic correspondence. The Verkhoshansky ‘recipe’ for developing a strength and conditioning program is to identify the relative contribution of the various physical qualities inherent to a specific dynamic sport such a s sprinting in track & field, swimming, boxing, and so forth. Exercises are selected around developing those qualities with the ultimate aim of enhancing the athlete’s performance in his/her given event. “…technical mastery in those sports requiring the display of explosive force, is determined first and foremost by speed strength preparedness and the athlete’s skill to fully utilize it.” “.. it is necessary to develop a power reserve of motor potential, i.e., the development of motor abilities to a level which exceeds that which is necessary for executing the motor task.” The rational application of science, which is the Verkhoshansky’s (the Soviet) method is to be contrasted with the commercialized approach to training in the USA. The sale and or commercialization of training methodology, exercise devices, coaching certifications and such, stifles any semblance of objectivity.

The National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) has long been at the forefront of aiding aspiring and established exercise professionals in working with clients from special populations, such as children, aging adults, and clients with temporary or permanent physical or cognitive conditions and disorders. Clients with special conditions often require modifications to general exercise recommendations, specific exercise facility design, and particular training equipment. They may also require exercise programming supervised by exercise professionals with specialized training. NSCA's Essentials of Training Special Populations will help exercise professionals design customized programs for clients with unique considerations. It is an ideal preparatory resource for those seeking to become an NSCA Certified Special Population Specialist (CSPS) as well as professionals who work in collaboration with health care professionals to assess, educate, and train special population clients of all ages regarding their health and fitness needs.

Jacobs, who has extensive experience as both a practitioner and scholar, and a team of qualified contributors provide evidence-based information and recommendations on particular training protocols for a breadth of conditions, including musculoskeletal conditions, cardiovascular conditions, immunologic disorders, and cancer. The book discusses the benefits of exercise for clients with special conditions and the exercise-related challenges they often face, as well as the importance of safe and effective health and fitness assessments for these clients. With an emphasis on published research, NSCA's Essentials of Training Special Populations reviews the pathology and pathophysiology of numerous conditions and disorders, including the known effects of exercise on those conditions and disorders. Each chapter includes tables that provide exercise recommendations for specific conditions, complete with training modifications, precautions, and contraindications. Also included are case studies with practical examples of the application of these population-specific recommendations, as well as a summary of the commonly prescribed medications and their potential effects on exercise responses and adaptations.
