In the seven years since the publication of his first book, Functional Training for Sports, new understanding of functional anatomy has created a shift in strength coaching. With this new material, coach Boyle presents the continued evolution of functional training as seen by a leader in the strength and conditioning field.
We would be hard-pressed to find someone who has contributed more to the science and practice of keeping athletes healthy and performing at high levels than Michael Boyle. In this new book, he'll make you question what you've done in the past, re-evaluate what you're doing now, and motivate you to think for yourself in the future. -- Eric Cressey "EricCressey.com"商品の説明をすべて表示する
There really is only one part of this book which is missing - effective strength exercises for the glutes. This is Mike Boyle's sample template for the hip dominant exercises for lower body strength:
"Level 1: First Three Weeks: Cook Hip Lift, Slideboard Leg Curl (eccentric only), Hyperextension, Hyperextension Hold
Level 2: Foot-Elevated Hip Lift, Modified Straight-Leg Deadlift, One-Leg Straight-Leg Deadlift (Progressions)
Level 3: One-Leg Hyperextension, One-Leg Good Morning, Slideboard and Stability-Ball Hip Extension Variations
Level 3: Slideboard Leg Curl (eccentric and concentric phase), Stability-Ball Leg Curl"
These exercises all work the hamstrings and glutes, but work the hamstrings much more (except possibly for the level 1 exercises). If you read the book, it also does a lot more than just work the hamstrings and glutes, but that's a different story. Unless I missed something, the purpose for activating the glutes and strengthening them is so they can do their job and not be overtaken by the low back and hamstrings. A more functional template to encourage glute strength should have the glutes having at least the same amount of work at least in hip extension (but not possibly in knee flexion). Boyle lays out beautifully the template for activating the glutes and he does a superb job of this as I have used just this approach to activate the glutes and improve lumbar movement or one could say anti-movement. An example template which uses glute strengthening exercises could be (and is the one I use with my clientele): Level 1: Progressively Heavy Bird Dog's (to balance strength assymetries and further enhance lumbar stability versus mobility). Level 2: Glute Bridge with Heavy Weight. Level 3: Hip Thrust with Shoulders off Bench. Level 4: Hip Thrust with Shoulders and Feet of Bench. Based on these levels, high step ups off of a pad could be used at any one of these levels to minimize quad and hamstrings involvement, to provide frontal plane stability training, utilize the obliques, etc..
99% of Mike Boyle's book is great and I could write about 10 pages raving about this book, but I encourage anyone fitness professional to read this book from beginning to end to learn how great exercise programming is done.
I have no advanced training in athletic training, kinesiology, or any related fields, but this book is so rich in insights, that I feel much more well equipped to evaluate and craft a complete exercise program than the typical personal trainer at the local gym. And when I mean complete I am referring to thinking about joint mobility, joint stability, static flexibility, dynamic flexibility, injury prevention, balancing pushing and pulling exercises across multiple pains of motion (and doing the same with knee dominant versus hip dominant exercises), emphasizing unilateral exercises, rehabilitating a painful knee with a focus on eccentric movements and hip stabilizers, the role of core strength, developing power through appropriate use of Olympic Style lifts, the pitfalls of an over-emphasis on steady-state cadio endurance work & the benefits of intense intervals, and using foam rollers to enhance recovery and decrease muscle density. Phew!
The limitations: This is not written with the interested layman like myself in mind. The author presumes a degree of knowledge of his reader consistent with the target audience. For me this meant brief explanations of certain movements/exercises and a dearth of helpful images. There also seem to be some inconsistencies based on text that I suspect is left over from his previous publication Functional Training for Sports (I still can't quite figure out where Mr. Boyle stands on dead-lifts, for example). That said, this is an amazing resource for anyone interested in deepening their knowledge of athletic training or just plain old effective exercise.
