Exercise Physiology, North American Edition: Nutrition, Energy, and Human Performance (Exercise Physiology)

Exercise Physiology, North American Edition: Nutrition, Energy, and Human Performance (Exercise Physiology) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Since publication of its First Edition in 1981, Exercise Physiology has helped more than 350,000 students build a solid foundation of the scientific principles underlying modern exercise physiology. This Seventh Edition has been thoroughly updated with all the most recent findings, guiding you to the latest understanding of nutrition, energy transfer, and exercise training and their relationship to human performance.

This Seventh Edition maintains its popular seven-section structure. It begins with an exploration of the origins of exercise physiology and concludes with an examination of the most recent efforts to apply principles of molecular biology. The book provides excellent coverage of exercise physiology, uniting the topics of energy expenditure and capacity, molecular biology, physical conditioning, sports nutrition, body composition, weight control, and more.

Every chapter has been fully revised and updated to reflect the latest information in the field. The updated full-color art program adds visual appeal and improves understanding of key topics.

A companion website includes over 30 animations of key exercise physiology concepts; the full text online; a quiz bank; references; appendices; information about microscope technologies; a timeline of notable events in genetics; a list of Nobel Prizes in research related to cell and molecular biology; the scientific contributions of thirteen outstanding female scientists; an image bank; a Brownstone test generator; PowerPoint® lecture outlines; and image-only PowerPoint® slides.

Book News Annotation:

Like previous editions (the first was published in 1981), this seventh edition text is structured in seven sections covering nutrition, energy for physical activity, aerobic systems of energy delivery and utilization, enhancement of energy transfer capacity, exercise performance and environmental stress, body composition and weight control, and aging and disease prevention. An introduction discusses the history of exercise physiology and a conclusion addresses advances in molecular biology that will affect the field. Abundant photos, charts, graphs, and plenty of other pedagogical tools support the text. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

  • 9780781797818  McArdle Exercise Physiology,North American Edition
  • 9781608316922 Stedman's Medical Dictionary for the Health Professions and Nursing

Synopsis:

Updated with the latest cutting-edge research findings, the Fourth Edition helps readers make the bridge between nutrition and exercise concepts and their practical applications. The book provides a strong foundation in the science of exercise nutrition and bioenergetics and offers valuable insights into how the principles work in the real world of physical activity and sports medicine. Case Studies and Personal Health and Exercise Nutrition activities engage readers in practical nutritional assessment problems.

Synopsis:

Designed for undergraduate course work, this exercise physiology textbook unites research and theory with real-world application so students can easily relate to the concepts being presented. The unique applied approach fully engages you in discovering how the human body works and responds to exercise. You’ll not only gain a solid foundation in exercise physiology concepts, you’ll also learn how to apply these concepts on the job to optimize athletic performance and well-being.  Moreover, you’ll come to understand the vital health benefits of exercise and physical activity for all individuals at all ages, including special populations.
 
Beginning with basic exercise physiology concepts, the text progressively builds your knowledge by integrating these concepts into practical discussions of nutrition and training. The text stresses a research-based approach, enabling you to locate and evaluate the evidence you need to make good decisions.  Numerous examples further underscore the importance of basic concepts and research in addressing real-life challenges in exercise and athletic training.
