Das Buch Krafttraining – Praxis und Wissenschaft wurde in der zweiten Auflage erheblich erweitert und verändert.

Da die vorliegende Auflage noch wesentlich praxis-orientierter als die vorangegangene Auflage ist, vermittelt das Buch dem Praktiker das für die Entwicklung individuell zugeschnittener Krafttrainingsprogramme erforderliche Verständnis. Dem Leser werden die aktuellsten Informationen zur Theorie und Praxis des Krafttrainings vermittelt. Drei komplett neue Kapitel helfen dabei, sichere und effektive Krafttrainingsprogramme für Frauen, junge Sportler und Senioren zu entwickeln. Darüber hinaus präsentieren die Autoren beispielhafte Krafttrainingsprogramme, an denen sie die in diesem Buch erklärten Prinzipien und Konzepte demonstrieren. Diese Ausgabe des Werkes vermittelt dem Leser ein grundlegendes Verständnis zur Entwicklung geeigneter Krafttrainingsprogramme für jeden einzelnen Sportler.
