This new volume in the Encyclopaedia of Sports Medicine series, published under the auspices of the International Olympic Committee, provides a state-of-the- art account of the epidemiology of injury across a broad spectrum of Olympic sports. The book uses the public health model in describing the scope of the injury problem, the associated risk factors, and in evaluating the current research on injury prevention strategies described in the literature. Epidemiology of Injury in Olympic Sports comprehensively covers what is known about the distribution and determinants of injury and injury rates in each sport. The editors and contributors have taken an evidence-based approach and adopted a uniform methodology to assess the data available. Each chapter is illustrated with tables which make it easy to examine injury factors between studies within a sport and between sports. With contributions from internationally renowned experts, this is an invaluable reference book for medical doctors, physical therapists and athletic trainers who serve athletes and sports teams, and for sports medicine scientists and healthcare professionals who are interested in the epidemiological study of injury in sports.
Drawing on the latest scientific research, this handbook introduces the essentials of sport-specific strength and conditioning programme design for over 30 different sports.

Weight training refers to any type of training that involves the body moving in same direction against a force that resists that movement and is supplied by some type of weight including free weights and weight machines . Weight training using near one-repetition (1RM) weight at low velocity has been found to improve the muscle’s ability to generate force, but the increase in strength may not be effective at velocities that stimulate the speed of sport performance . Muscular strength is much different from muscular endurance. Strength is a measure of how much force your muscles can exert, while endurance is the measure of how many times your muscles can repeat a specific exertion of force. Unlike muscular endurance which is controlled by slow twitch fibers, strength is determined by fast twitch fibers which focus more on quick bursts of energy rather than long, drawn out ones.
Topics covered in this comprehensive manual include injury prevention, causes of injury in specific sports and types of injuries encountered, acute injury diagnosis and management, and the physiological basis of bony and soft tissue injuries.
