Training For Sport: Improving Flexibility by Paul Mason

It's not just gymnasts and ballet dancers who need to be flexible. Sports such as rock climbing, Judo, diving and cricket rely on flexibility to be performed well and reduce the risk of injury. This book explains the science behind flexibility, provides exercises and explains the effects diet has on muscle performance.* Test your flexibility and follow professional step-by-step exercises to improve it.* Discover how your muscles, joints, ligaments and tendons work together to enable the body to be flexible.* Understand how to stretch to avoid injury and what the difference is between static, dynamic and assisted stretching.* Read about sportspeople such as Tom Daly, Lynn Hill and Rafael Nadal, whose flexibility has helped them to excel.Combining sports science, nutrition, training programmes and exercises, the Training for Sport series of books is a complete guide to raising performance for children aged 9+.

About the Author

Paul's books cover a wide range of subjects, from whether the Romans ate crisps to how to build the world's best skatepark, but he writes mostly about sport. Whether you are interested in swimming or cycling, snowboarding, surfing or another sport, Paul has probably written something that will inspire you to get out and give it a try. Paul writes in a shack by the beach, which he shares with his one-eyed surf dog, Daisy.

I love Lovereading4kids because I get an opportunity to put my opinion forward and to try new books

Elosie Clarkson – age 11

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

Jessica Cobbin – age 7

I think Lovereading4kids is an amazing company because of the friendly staff and the fabulous chance to read great books before publication.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

Nickey and Tomasz Hawryszczuk

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to
