The Barbell Prescription: Strength Training for Life After 40 directly addresses the most pervasive problem faced by aging humans: the loss of physical strength and all its associated problems - the loss of muscle mass, bone mineral loss and osteoporosis, hip fractures (a terminal event for many older people), loss of balance and coordination, diabetes, heart disease related to a sedentary lifestyle, and the loss of independence. The worst advice an older person ever gets is, Take it easy. Easy makes you soft, and soft makes you dead. The Barbell Prescription maps an escape from the usual fate of older adults: a logical, programmed approach to the hard work necessary to win at the extreme sport of Aging Well. Unlike all other books on the subject of exercise for seniors, The Barbell Prescription challenges the motivated Athlete of Aging with a no-nonsense training approach to strength and health - and demonstrates that everybody can become significantly stronger using the most effective tools ever developed for the job.

Jeder Kraftsportler kennt das Problem, dass er nach Wochen des intensiven Trainings plötzlich ein Plateau erreicht. Die Trainingsreize regen seine Muskeln nicht zu weiterem Wachstum an, und der Sportler erzielt keine Fortschritte mehr. Wenn er nun sein Trainingsprogramm nicht verändert, sodass die Muskeln neuen Belastungen ausgesetzt werden, wird er seine Leistungsfähigkeit nicht weiter steigern können.

Das Buch beschreibt detailliert die Mechanik des Trainingsprozesses, beginnend bei der grundlegenden Physiologie der Adaptation.

K. Black’s Tactical Barbell and Tactical Barbell II compose a ground breaking multi-dimensional fitness system designed specifically for operational athletes. Not only has the Tactical Barbell system helped countless operational athletes step up their strength and conditioning game, but mix martial artists, endurance athletes, and recreational fitness enthusiasts of all sorts have adopted these principles in order to achieve high levels of achievement across the fitness spectrum. In Tactical Barbell Presents: Ageless Athlete, Jim Madden hones the Tactical Barbell system to fit the needs of trainees who have reached middle age and beyond. Programs geared at older populations typically aim at maintaining basic levels of fitness and general well-being. While that is all well and good, Tactical Barbell Presents: Ageless Athlete doesn’t assume that you need to settle for less just because you are now on the other side of forty. Using the Tactical Barbell system, Madden lays out how you can build and maintain outstanding levels of strength and conditioning at any age. In Tactical Barbell Presents: Ageless Athlete you will find extensive discussions of how to avoid the psychological pitfalls that lead many older trainees to sell themselves short, multiple new strength templates built on Operator and Zulu from Tactical Barbell, a method for planning recovery days/weeks, templates for incorporating accessory lifts and kettlebells, methods for testing strength progress, a standard base building template tailored for the ageless athlete, diet tips, and recommendations for long term persistence. Whether you have reached middle age or not, it is never too early to start training like an ageless athlete.

Taleb ist einer der prägenden Denker des 21. Jahrhunderts – Antifragilität ist sein zentrales Werk In seinem Weltbestseller Der Schwarze Schwan problematisierte Nassim Nicholas Taleb die zunehmende Unberechenbarkeit der Welt. Jetzt liegt sein wichtigstes Buch vor: In Antifragilität liefert „der führende Denker unserer Zeit“ (Times) eine wirkmächtige Gebrauchsanweisung, wie wir selbst, unsere Unternehmen und Strukturen, Chaos und unberechenbare Ereignisse nicht nur überstehen, sondern sogar davon profitieren können. Denn alles, was nicht antifragil ist, wird verschwinden. Nassim Nicholas Taleb, der Aufklärer und Schreck aller „Versicherer“ und Analysten schickt in seinem neuen Buch heutiges Risikomanagement und Prognostik in die Wüste. Nicht indem wir Zufälle und Ungewissheit um jeden Preis abzuwehren versuchen, gewinnen wir, sondern indem wir sie zu Stärken ummünzen. Talebs Konzept der Antifragilität ist eine große, praktisch-philosophische Antwort auf die Herausforderungen unsicherer Zeiten. Seine Beispiele bedienen das ganze Spektrum von Finanzen und Wirtschaft, Politik, Wissenschaft, Privatleben. Er zeigt, warum kleine Strukturen besser sind als große, Stadtstaaten besser als Nationen, warum Silicon Valley mehr Erfolg hat als das Bankensystem, warum Zahnärzte und LKWFahrer antifragiler sind als Bischöfe und Geschäftsführer, warum Schulden abhängig machen und warum alles, was zu kompliziert ist, von der Bildfläche verschwinden wird. Multidisziplinär und mit großer Übersicht umreißt Antifragilität ein neues Denken für eine Welt, die bei allem Fortschritt niemals berechenbar sein wird.

Analysieren statt vertuschen Menschen, die gezielt aus Fehlern lernen, anstatt sie zu vertuschen oder anderen in die Schuhe zu schieben, nennt Matthew Syed Black-Box-Denker. Dazu sind jedoch nur wenige in der Lage. Auch in vielen Unternehmen geht man mit Misserfolgen nicht offen und ohne Schuldzuweisungen um. Syed bietet aufschlussreiche Analysen für dieses Verhalten. Zu welchen Erfolgen hingegen ein offensiver Umgang mit Fehlern führen kann, zeigt Syed anhand konkreter Beispiele, aus der Welt des Sports oder von erfolgreichen Unternehmen wie Google, Pixar oder Dropbox.

Endurance runners and coaches have tended to neglect weight training and conditioning techniques, often in the belief that they don't benefit performance, add unwanted muscle bulk, or cause excessive soreness. But as standards at elite level have improved, so coaches and runners have become increasingly keen on learning about the latest new training techniques or ways to stay injury free. No longer does the running community view strength and conditioning with scepticism, or as something that can only benefit elite runners. In Strength and Conditioning for Endurance Running, author Richard Blagrove shows how a strength and conditioning programme can directly improve running performance and reduce the risk of injury, as well as allowing an athlete to tolerate high volumes of running in the future. Fully illustrated with 312 colour images and diagrams.
