Jim Klopman con Balance is Power: Improve Your Body's Balance to Perform Better, Live Longer, and Look Younger (English Edition)The world of fitness books, "experts," and fad programs would have you think that peak performance is mostly about building muscle and aerobic conditioning, with maybe a sprinkle of balance work for good measure. This book, Balance Is Power, is here to rewrite that formula and change your life.
Real success in fitness, sports, work, and life all begin with optimizing the human balance system. Strength and endurance are important, but secondary to the small control muscles of the balance system. Not a single activity, save for lying down, can be accomplished without using our balance -- the sixth sense that works almost unnoticed and unappreciated in the background of our daily lives. The better your balance, the faster you can run, pivot, aim, throw and hit, with far lower risk of injury. And that goes for people of all ages and at all points on the spectrum of performance.
But there's another reason to refocus fitness emphasis on balance. Over the past decade, deaths following falls have nearly doubled and are the leading cause of concussions nationwide. That can and should change. The path to unleashing your best balance lies within these pages. And once you're on that path, the skill stays with you for life with only minimal tune-ups and modest effort.
For the past five years, Jim Klopman has devoted himself to studying and analyzing the phenomenon of human balance, while developing a game changing training method for all ages. Now he has put what he has learned from successfully training professional golfers, skiers, weekend warriors, aging athletes and concussion victims into a book that explains the miracle of human balance and lays out a simple training system that can be followed at home either with or without his patented balance training equipment.
Are you ready to balance your body, balance your mind and unleash your best?
