Exercise Physiology : Exercise, Performance and Clinical Applications - 97 edition

Exercise Physiology : Exercise, Performance and Clinical Applications (ISBN10: 0815172419; ISBN13: 9780815172413)
ISBN13: 978-0815172413
ISBN10: 0815172419

Summary: This ground-breaking text is designed for students in exercise physiology and advanced exercise physiology courses taught out of departments of physica
l education, physical therapy, kinesiology, exercise science, pre-med, and allied health disciplines. Comprehensive and practical, this text offers a clinical emphasis throughout, and examines both the acute and chronic adaptations of exercise upon the individual. Clinical Applications of content are highlighted, and integrated into selected chapters to provide greater relevance to a diverse audience. Focuses on acute and chronic adaptations to exercise in Chapters 9 through 12 by examining how the individual adapts to exercise during immediate and long-term timeframes. Also applies this information throughout the text .
Chapter 2 provides more detail on bioenergetics and thermodynamics with examples that pertain to exercise physiology rather than physics. Chapter 3 provides a separate chapter for coverage of enzyme function.
Provides a separate chapter on bone function and adaptation, with an emphasis on prevention of bone loss through proper nutrition and exercise.
Provides separate chapters on immune function, fatigue, gender, aging, and pediatrics, and emphasizes prevention and the benefits of exercise in each.
Exercise at different altitudes, exercise in hot and in humid environments, exercise in air pollution, and unique coverage of exercise during exposure to altered gravitational forces are detailed in Chapter 26.
