Summary

Explores the appropriate level and kind of exercise throughout the lifespace from tottage to dotage, with special attention to women's health and to exercise and training programs for a wide spectrum of cardiovascular disorders. Revised from the 1992 edition to report the considerable empirical findings since then, and to account for the shift in recommendations from deliberate exercise sessions in a specialized facility to incorporating physical activity into ordinary daily life. Among the topics are physiological, biochemical, and psychological responses to exercise and physical activity; assessing exercise capacity and principles of prescribing exercise; exercise, hypertrophy, and cardiomyopathy in young and older athletes; the role of exercise in preventing and managing diabetes mellitus and blood lipid disorders; hypertension; exercise and cardiopulmonary fitness in people with spinal cord injury; and the costs and benefits of exercise programs in secondary and tertiary rehabilitation.
