Physiology of Sport and Exercise, Third Edition, is now packaged with an Online Student Guide access code. With the inclusion of the student guide access code in the text, students will be reminded to access the Web site and use its functionality more readily. The convenient Web site format of the student guide allows students to practice, review, and develop knowledge and skills about the physiology of sport and exercise.

The Online Student Guide corresponds directly with the content in the book, and is guaranteed to help students more easily comprehend the material that is presented by the authors. The study guide includes questions and activities to test students as they prepare for quizzes or tests. It also provides dynamic and interactive learning activities, all of which can be conducted outside the lab. Students will be able to apply the key concepts by conducting self-made experiments and recording their own physiological responses to exercise. In addition, students will be able to access links to professional journals as well as organization and career information.

The textbook developed by respected and renowned authors, Jack Wilmore and David Costill presents a solid foundation of basic exercise physiology and redefines the discipline's standard for textbooks. The third edition of Physiology of Sport and Exercise offers an improved version of their comprehensive resource that frames the latest and most significant research findings in a reader-friendly format and makes it easier--and more exciting--than ever for students to learn and for teachers to teach. Now, your students can further develop their understanding of the body's ability to perform physical work, adapt to stressful situations, and improve its physiological capacities.

The sweeping revision preserves all the most popular attributes of the previous editions, including teachable, well-organized chapters; student-friendly writing; more than 300 color graphs and illustrations explaining key concepts; and the latest research findings. Designed to better meet the needs of undergraduate students, the exciting third edition continues to make learning easy and enjoyable with inviting chapter openers, overviews and outlines at the start of each chapter, detailed figures and captions, key terms, study questions, references, selected readings, and an updated glossary and index.

This edition includes more new and updated information than ever. There's a section in the historical chapter on the emergence of molecular biology, new information on clinical research and researchers in the field, and an updated discussion of longitudinal versus cross-sectional research and the basics of how to accurately read scientific graphs. Plus, Physiology of Sport and Exercise, Third Edition, has these features:

  • The most current information on muscle fiber type categorization
  • Coverage of late-breaking studies of the neural component of strength gains and the molecular changes that are responsible for these gains
  • New research on muscle soreness and its causes
  • More instructive material to illustrate the measurement of oxygen consumption and carbon dioxide production during exercise, including the Haldane transformation
  • Expanded material on estimating anaerobic effort using the Wingate test, maximal accumulated oxygen deficit, and other newer techniques
  • New evidence of the causes of fatigue at the contractile muscle and central nervous system levels
  • Additional VO2max information--just published from the Heritage Family Study of 724 untrained subjects who completed an identical training program for 20 weeks and showed increases in VO2max from 0 to 53%
  • Updated information on thermal regulation by hydration before exercise
  • New research on exercise in microgravity (space) environments
  • More firsthand research on the demands of training, from Costill's Human Performance Lab at Ball State University
  • Expanded material on chronic fatigue syndrome, overreaching, and overtraining principles
  • Recent research on tapering
  • More details on assessing body composition using the newest methods and technologies
  • Up-to-date diagnostic techniques for medial clearances for an exercise program
  • Updated statistical information from the American Heart Association on the leading causes of death in the United States and updated information on obesity rate, risks of obesity, and prevention through physical activity
  • All-new information on diabetes based on the most recent research and trends

This text also includes some improved features to encourage learning. New research is highlighted in breakout boxes to bring attention to important trends and directions, improved conversion tables focus on SI units, and an expanded glossary makes it easier for students to look up and cross-reference terms.

And, like the second edition, Physiology of Sport and Exercise, Third Edition, features ancillaries that include an updated and improved presentation package, test package, and instructor guide. The authors have also updated the supporting materials, making them more effective and more engaging for students and teachers. The ready-to-use and easy-to-modify presentation package includes all graphics and content photos, eliminating any need to scan your own. It also includes text slides with key points. The timesaving, easier-to-use test bank and instructor guide package is packed with resources and teaching aids and can be downloaded via the Internet.
