Since early times, people have developed tools and machines to help improve their abilities and performance. Many of these tools have been patterned after the human body-levers, hinges, fulcrums and pulleys mirror the action of our shoulders, elbows, arms and tendons. Just as our tools and machines require care and maintenance if they are to perform at optimum levels, our bodies require proper use and handling for us to attain peak performance. Your body is a highly complex machine and you are in control-or should be. How you manage your body, how you take care of it, and how well you know it will determine how well and how long you survive. Peak Performance: Body and Mind draws from the fields of kinetics, biomechanics and physiology. Dr. Scott W. Donkin and Dr. Gerard Meyer present a highly systematic approach to life that will bring you to a much higher level of comfort, satisfaction and accomplishment. You'll actually experience a sense of exhilaration as you learn to eat, walk, breathe, and even drive in ways that can avoid the most negative environmental impact. Heightened concentration, anticipation and relaxation will be yours as you bring your physical systems into unison with your mind. Profusely illustrated and easy to read, Peak Performance gives you every opportunity to take charge of your body and mind.
