Bulletproof Bodies: Body-weight Exercise for Injury Prevention and Rehabilitation is released tomorrow. Author of Complete Calisthenics, Ashley Kalym, and registered and chartered physiotherapist Ross Clifford bring their experience and knowledge together to produce this comprehensive guide to preventing injury by strength training.
From tennis elbow to low back pain, Bulletproof Bodies aims to demonstrate how targeted body-weight exercise can be used to tackle a range of injuries and improve joint range-of-motion, muscle strength and endurance, and ligament and tendon health. As an added bonus, by using the suggested exercises you will also gain strength and physical fitness.
Through engaging multiple parts of the body and stabilizing muscle groups, the exercises in Bulletproof Bodies offer a challenging, stimulating and accessible means of dealing with those niggling injuries. Whether you are already a highly tuned athlete looking to stay at the top of your game, a return-to-fitness enthusiast with new aches and pains, or a moderately active individual keen to overcome that recurring joint pain, Bulletproof Bodies will offer you a range of exercises to target specific body areas and even specific types of condition. Along the way, this book will also educate you on ‘need-to-know’ elements of anatomy and pathology.
