Warming up is extremely important for athletes in all stages of life, and yet it is often the most neglected portion of a work out, simply because it can often become repetitive and boring. This book aims to put the fun back into warm ups by getting athletes moving in new and unexpected ways. It is written for anyone who coaches athletes in a group setting: physical educators, team sports coaches, camp counselors, CrossFit gym owners, personal trainers, scout leaders, and more. The activities described here are appropriate for young and old, for experienced athletes and newbies, for small groups and large ones. Don´t underestimate how fun simple playground games and competitions can be for adults as well as children! They can also be used as cool down activities or as ice breakers for large groups. 1.

Everywhere you look, physical play - what some might call ´´roughhousing´´ - is being marginalized. Gym classes are getting shorter. Recess periods are being eliminated. Some new schools don´t even have playgrounds. Is it any wonder children retreat to ´´virtual horseplay´´ via video games? But Drs. Anthony T. DeBenedet and Lawrence J. Cohen are here to shake things up - literally! With The Art of Roughhousing, they show how rough-and-tumble play can nurture close connections, solve behavior problems, boost confidence, and more. Drawing inspiration from gymnastics, martial arts, ballet, traditional sports, and even animal behavior, the authors present dozens of activities for children and parents to enjoy together - everything from the ´´Sumo Dead Lift´´ to the ´´Rogue Dumbo.´´ These delightful games are fun, free, and contain many surprising health benefits for parents. So put down those electronic games and get ready to rumble!

A brilliant exploration of the relationship between parents and children in sport, written and narrated by Match of the Day 2 presenter Mark Chapman. BBC sports presenter Mark Chapman is no longer in his physical prime. There is an argument to suggest he has never been in his physical prime. Now in his 40s - his early 40s, as he is often at pains to point out - he is facing a world of knee replacements and ever-expanding waistlines whilst his children are thriving. There is huge pride that they are doing so well, but it is mixed with a bittersweet sadness that he will never get his own sporting heyday back. It is also mixed with a fair amount of jealousy that actually they are better than he ever was - and a large amount of sulking that they are now able to beat him at a wide range of sports. He is passionate about sport, and it has played a huge part in his life. His parents encouraged him from a very early age, and he wants to pass the baton on to his son and daughters. Although there is every chance he might drop it and have a massive strop instead. The Love of the Game is about the constant battle not to become the sporting pariah, the biggest baddie in the world of kids´ sport, the nightmare sporting dad. But beyond that it paints sport as a touchstone for everything important: growing up, becoming a parent, getting old, learning how to win (and how to lose gracefully) and the legacy we all hope to leave our children - in short, life and all that goes into it. 1.
