    Assessments for Sport and Athletic Performance With CE Exam is a streamlined guide through the process of identifying appropriate tests for athletes or clients, making use of common low-cost equipment to administer the tests, interpreting data, adjusting training programs based on the results, and continually monitoring training.

    For each assessment, this text walks you through a step-by-step process and includes a script of directions to give the athlete or client being tested to ensure the tests are performed correctly. You’ll find a variety of protocols that do not require complicated equipment and can be conveniently conducted in your normal training environment. You’ll be able to assess your athletes or clients in the following areas:
    • Anthropometrics and body composition
    • Flexibility and balance
    • Agility and sprinting
    • Power
    • Muscular strength and endurance
    • Cardiorespiratory fitness
    • External and internal training load
    • Perceptual well-being and physical readiness
    In addition, each assessment is accompanied by normative data to set baseline evaluations and to monitor progress over time. As a refreshing break from the typical complex tables, the normative data are displayed in modern, simplified figures that make it easy to quickly evaluate test results.

    Upon completing the book, certified professionals can take the companion CE exam to earn continuing education credits.
