Performance Explosion in Sports is based on practical experience, integrated scientific analyses and international results the author and his team achieved over a period of 15 years while working with recreational and top athletes.
The book Performance Explosion in Sports offers new revolutionary findings in the area of inividual micronutrient therapy in top and recreational athletes that has lead to the preservation of connective tissue function (ligaments, tendons, cartilage), thereby facilitating injury-free training. Special Parameters show links between micronutrient deficiencies and degenerative changes in these structures.
"Athletes live dangerously": a recent survey of runners at a marathon in Bonn, Germany, revealed that approximately 50% of the athletes polled had taken analgesic drugs prior to the race. This is only the tip of the iceberg.
The results from the comprehensive SALUTO database, special testing of recreational and top athletes and the individual micronutrient formulations prepared for this purpose, make pain-free, clean and injury-free sports possible. The new findings and practical help will be a significant milestone for future generations and a good source of advice for athletes, trainers, physical therapists and physicians.
Prof. Dr. Elmar Wienecke is a certified trainer with a doctorate in sports science. He received his doctor's degree at the Cologne Sports Academy in Cologne, Germany, in the area of sports medicine/cardiology/fitness training and kinetics. His personal negative experiences in sports due to numerous torn ligaments in ankle and knee led to his premature athletic diablement.
With his meticulous work ethic and an interest in science, he initially decided to become a soccer coach. He has been licensed as a German Bundesliga coach since 1989. He coached for several years in German regional league clubs and briefly in the 2nd League Bundesliga. He ended his occupation as a trainer at the age of 33, and founded SALUTO, which today is considered a center of excellence for health and fitness in Germany. Between 1994 and 2010, he and his team tested a total of 9,150 competitive athletes, 6,434 recreational athletes and 16,870 non-athletes.
Today, his visionary training and nutrition concepts for top athletes produce results on an international level. As the initiator of clinical studies, research projects in the area of micronutrient therapy and the unique European prevention concept for youth and top athletic talent, he also lectures and conducts seminars all over Europe. At the end of 2008, he received an honorary professor's degree from the department of physical education and health at the largest Rumanian sports science university.
