The Science of Basketball is the only book to examine the scientific principles underpinning preparation and performance in basketball, applied to both individual and team contexts. Drawing on the very latest scientific evidence, and including contributions from leading internati...onal coaches and scientists involved in the sport, the book explores every aspect of physical and mental preparation and performance, including: * strength and conditioning, and training strategies * physiological aspects of performance * nutrition and supplementation * psychological preparation * skill acquisition * biomechanical aspects of performance * performance analysis * injury epidemiology, prevention and rehabilitation * coach education Incorporating case-studies at the end of each chapter to demonstrate how scientific principles can be applied to practice, the book bridges the gap between theory and applied practice in basketball better than any other. It is essential reading for any student, researcher, sport scientist, coach, physiotherapist or clinician with an interest in the game, and illuminative supplementary reading for students of sport science and sports coaching.
