Old-school marathon training plans ask runners to crank out 70 to 100 miles a week. It's no wonder those who make it to the start line are running ragged. Smart Marathon Training maps out a healthier, more economical approach to training that emphasizes quality over quantity. This innovative program eliminates junk miles, paring down training to three essential runs per week and adding a dynamic strength and cross-training program to build overall fitness. Runners will train for their best performance in less time and avoid the injuries, overtraining, and burnout that come from running too much. Smart Marathon Training builds up a runner's body to resist injury. Runners gain the strength they need to run long using functional exercises that target the hips, glutes, and quads. Running is a full-body sport, so this training program also builds a strong core and upper body to avoid injuries that begin above the waist. No one fakes a marathon or half-marathon--everyone has to do the work. But Smart Marathon Training replaces long, grinding miles with low-impact cross-training. Horowitz outlines a cycling plan to complement run workouts, boosting base fitness while saving runners' bodies for their best runs. With more than 75 detailed exercises plus six easy-to-follow training plans for half- and full marathons, Smart Marathon Training will get you to the start line feeling refreshed and ready to run your best race yet.

[i]Ageless Spine, Lasting Health[/i] clearly illustrates just how the body is designed to really work and what true fitness and graceful aging can look like when you simply sit, stand, bend, walk, lift, reach and even sleep in a natural way. Genuine, natural strength is not about "developed" muscles, as almost all of us have come to believe, but is a natural interplay between elastic muscles and aligned bones. It's more about "working in" rather than "working out," and this book will show you how.

Baby boomers are creating a stir in the fitness industry as they seek to change the way we age. Looking around senior fitness classes they don't see themselves. Attending bootcamps they leave with their aching knees crying out for help. Author Debra Atkinson sorts through the maze of options available for physical activity and defines how to reach optimal results while preparing vulnerable exercisers to assess professionals.Debra Atkinson, the author, is a 30-year fitness professional (www.voiceforfitness.com) formerly a Senior Lecturer in Kinesiology at Iowa State University and an international fitness industry presenter and author whose experience - teaching, hiring and supervising fitness professionals - enabled her to identify the questions boomers should ask instead of those they do. For example:* Not, are you certified? But are you certified by one of these four top tier agencies?* Not, have you worked with any one my age, but have you worked with anyone with my ability level before?* Not, do you have a plan for me, but what is the plan and why will that work?Most over 50 exercisers fall into one of two categories. They have exercised their entire lives, possibly stopping and starting and now what used to work doesn't anymore. The rules have changed. On the other hand, there are those who never have exercised and they can't ignore the fact any more their health depends on it. But they are intimidated, uncomfortable and don't know where to begin.As Atkinson describes each phase of an optimal exercise program and the mass of recent research for successful aging in the "second half" readers will:* Develop a needs list tied to their status, wants and goals* Create a set of questions to find the right gym, group, or trainer* Turn skepticism into confidence when they know what to ask* Minimize risk of injury and frustration due to lack of results* Get the most out of the investment of exercise time and moneyReaders will have access to links providing examples of exercises for an interactive experience. While there are many books on the market that are focused on fitness for older adults, and many more will follow, this book is unique in it's focus on how to use the resources available and to know that the program or professional selected will be in alignment with safe and effective means to a goal.
