Includes bibliographical references and index.
Exercise physiology: from past to present -- Macronutrients and micronutrients -- Food energy and optimum nutrition for exercise -- Nutritional (and pharmacologic) aids to performance -- Fundamentals of human energy transfer -- Human energy transfer during exercise -- Measuring and evaluating human energy-generating capacities during exercise -- Energy expenditure during rest and physical activity -- The pulmonary system and exercise.
The cardiovascular system and exercise -- The neuromuscular system and exercise -- Hormones, exercise, and training -- Training the anaerobic and aerobic energy systems -- Training muscles to become stronger -- Factors affecting physiologic function: the environment and special aids to performance -- Body composition, obesity, and weight control -- Exercise, successful aging, and disease prevention -- Clinical aspects of exercise physiology.
Illustrated with full-colour graphics and photos and including real-life cases, laboratory-type activities, and practical problem-solving questions, this work provides coverage of the fundamentals of exercise physiology, integrating scientific and clinical information on nutrition, energy transfer, and exercise training.
