Race Walk Faster by Training Smarter is for the countless coaches who say they do not know how to coach race walking, and for every athlete interested in training for our great event. Our previous texts, Race Walk Clinic - in a Book and Race Walk like a Champion, explain the techniques of race walking, and the latter text contains a general overview chapter on how to train. However, that chapter alone is not enough to completely develop a systematic training schedule suited to your specific situation. The needs of youth, high school, collegiate, elite, and masters athletes vary based on physiology and racing schedules, and one chapter cannot cover all of these intricacies. Race Walk Faster by Training Smarter is an entire book devoted to training.
Racewalk Like a Champion is the single best compilation of information on the technique, training, and history of race walking. It combines approximately 400 photographs with charts and diagrams to explain every detail of race walking. Never before has race walking been covered with such complete, aesthetically pleasing detail. Racewalk Like a Champion starts with a thorough explanation of how to select race walking shoes and warm up; then describes every aspect of race walking technique, judging, and training philosophy in extensive detail. Other chapters include stretching, racing, strength training, mental preparation, injury treatment, and nutrition. Racewalk Like a Champion also includes a comprehensive chapter on the history of American race walking. Race Walk Like a Champion assumes no prior walking experience or knowledge. Whether you are a novice race walker or an elite competitor, Racewalk Like a Champion will provide all the information you need.
The Complete Guide to Racewalk Technique and Training distills 20 years of accumulated racewalking knowledge into a single source -- a complete reference for anyone wanting to walk faster and more legally. Although this book is no substitute for good one-on-one coaching, the easy-to-understand technique tips and common-sense approach to training are a great resource for the coached and self-coached racewalkers alike
