"What is Powerlifting?" There is a growing misconception among athletes, athletic coaches, and the general public of the true definition of Powerlifting. The sport of Powerlifting consists of three (3) lifts : The Squat, the Bench Press, and the Deadlift along with a required TOTAL. "What are the real Powerlifting Records?" A new Powerlifting organization will often advertise a newly established set of lifting records without credence to existing marks. For the purpose of education and history of the sport, the original Powerlifting Records from the state of West Virginia including several National, American, and World Powerlifting Records are highlighted. "What is strong?" Strength training methods specific to "getting strong" may or may not originate from those who have performed at the highest level in competitive Powerlifting or Weightlifting. A total of five (5) Training Logs directly from the Workout Journals of the author are mapped. The workouts include the sets and repetitions, poundages, and maximum lifts from the official Powerlifting competitions. The achievements, Powerlifting, and Weightlifting Records of several lifters are identified and ranked within the book for the purpose of "Setting the Records Straight."

Interest in the relationships between body structure and function in physical activity has persisted for centuries. Body Composition: Health and Performance in Exercise and Sport advances understanding beyond simple descriptions of body physique and composition of athletes and fills gaps in our understanding of the important role of muscle, fat, and bone in facilitating physical performance and health in sports and physically demanding occupations. lt addresses basic, practical, and applied topics in body composition, performance, and health with comprehensive reviews organized in four logical parts: Body Composition Assessment; Physical Activity and Body Composition; Body Composition in Sports and Occupations; and Moderating Factors. This book integrates state-of-the-art knowledge by international experts in the field and produces an evidence-based practical guide for a balanced understanding of the role and use of body composition assessment in physical performance and health for youth and adults. It also provides a needed link between the practice of body composition assessment and its application by members of public health advisory committees that develop national guidelines for diet, physical activity, and health. This book is suitable for students and professionals in sports nutrition, exercise science, kinesiology, and athletic training. Sport administrators and policy-makers for international and national sport federations and organizations, and national intercollegiate and scholastic federations, would also benefit from this book.

In this exciting new book, Lewis Bowling, an instructor of physical education at North Carolina Central University, combines his experience as a personal trainer and physical fitness specialist with the current thinking about topics such as creatine use, machines versus barbells, and children's training to create a book that is both a practical how-to guide and a scholarly exploration of resistance training. In addition to detailed pictures and descriptions of proper weight lifting techniques, Bowling has included chapters from two additional resistance training experts. Sonny Falcone, the strength and conditioning coach at Duke University, details parts of the regime used by Duke athletes such as power lifts, agility drills, speed training, and sport-specific exercises. He also discusses the differences between how athletes train and how those interested in health/fitness train. Dr. Terry Todd, a professor at the University of Texas and the leading authority on resistance training history, provides insights into its evolution from the ancient "physical culture" to what is now called the "physical fitness movement." This book covers resistance training, exercise motivation, special population exercise programs, physiology, kinesiology, exercise prescription, and exercise safety. It will be useful to beginners looking to start an exercise program, experienced athletes, and all those in between.
