A guide to cross training, which uses an exercise programme consisting of different activities and sports in order to provide variety and reduce the risk of injury whilst improving all round fitness. The diversity of exercise in the programme serves to maintain long-term interest and to tax different muscle groups in different ways. Thus one day the athlete may run (putting stress on the muscles and joints of the legs) and then the next day swim (reducing the impact on the legs and working the arms more). The book is for those actively participating in a sport, for general fitness enthusiasts and for sports coaches and exercise instructors. It sets out a discussion of the subject and answers questions such as "What is cross training?", and "How should I cross train?"
