Exercise Physiology-Text Only - 3rd edition

Exercise Physiology-Text Only (ISBN10: 0697257983; ISBN13: 9780697257987)
ISBN13: 978-0697257987
ISBN10: 0697257983

Summary: Especially for exercise science and physical education students, this text provides a solid foundation in theory illuminated by application and performance models to increase understanding and to help students apply what they've learned in the classroom and beyond.
  • New full-color design includes many new illustrations to promote a clearer understanding of body systems and exercise physiology.
  • New!
    "Research Focus" boxed features examine current research topics to unveil the latest findings and developments. And "A Closer Look" features have been revised with more examples to help students explore the topics in more depth.
  • Chapter 8 Skeletal Muscle: Structure and Function has been completely rewritten and includes revised treatment of the role of muscles in maintaining homeostasis during exercise, ensuring students have the most current, accurate information available. Dr. Robert Staron, a biologist at Ohio University, provided expert analysis of these revisions.
  • New! A revised Chapter 14 Patterns in Health and Disease: Epidemiology and Physiology closely examines the relationship between physical activity and health as seen from the perspective of the epidemiologist and the physiologist. This lays the groundwork for further study in physiology, health, and fitness.
  • New! Chapter 18 Body Composition and Nutrition for Health now includes body composition measurements using multi-component models. It also examines the importance of fat balance, as well as energy balance, relative to weight control.
