Original Title

Les exercices qui vous soignent - Tome 3 Prévenir et soulager les blessures liées au sport

Practice your favourite sports activities while reducing the risk of injury? This is the first collection of exercises and warm-ups adapted to the most popular sports!

There is no doubt that there is more and more support for sports activities in terms of equipment, infrastructure, regulations, and coaching. However, the physical preparation (warm-up), post-exercise recovery (stretching) and conditioning (strengthening) stages are still, unfortunately, not always given enough attention. Yet these three elements of sports activity are essential, both for performance and for preventing injuries.

This book suggests simple, safe, and effective exercises that combine the maximum number of target joints and muscles, for completely safe activity.

— Written by movement specialists, on the cutting edge of current biomechanical knowledge.
— The authors are specialists in several fields of complementary expertise, giving them a better overall perspective on the subject.
— Nearly twenty sports covered, from badminton to cycling, as well as jogging, soccer, hiking, etc.
— The book contains several specific pieces of advice on the best lifestyle habits, ergonomic elements to know about, and movements that should be done to prevent or heal injuries See complete product information (French)
