Printed with 8 1/2 x 11 full-color pages, Race Walk 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.
Race Walk 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.
Race Walk Like a Champion also includes a comprehensive chapter on the history of American race walking. Each era of walking is broken up with an introduction and bios on the greats.
Race Walk Like a Champion is the culmination of 20 years of race walking, as well as the combined experience bestowed on me by coaches and mentors. It picks up where Walk Like an Athlete, co-authored in 1996, leaves off. Walk Like an Athlete was aimed at the recreational race walker. Race Walk Like a Champion is focused on instructing the competitive race walker. However, if you are a newbie walker and do not intend to compete, have no fear. Race Walk Like a Champion assumes no prior walking experience or knowledge. Whether you are a novice race walker or an elite competitor, Race Walk Like a Champion will provide all the information you need.
