Physiology of Sport and Exercise - 2nd edition

Physiology of Sport and Exercise (ISBN10: 0736000844; ISBN13: 9780736000840)
ISBN13: 978-0736000840
ISBN10: 0736000844

Summary: Improved features:
Here's what makes Physiology of Sport and Exercise an even better resource:
  • A better organization of the field's subject matter
  • Dynamic graphic presentations-featuring four-color photographs, graphs, and illustrations-that complement the text and encourage a deeper understanding
  • Clarity of language and reader-friendly presentation of information including
    color-coded chapters, chapter outlines, key terms and points, summary boxes, study questions, glossary and index
  • Thoroughly updated information based on the latest research findings
  • A new student study guide that features active learning exercises
  • Metric as well as imperial measurements
Organization of the text:
The logical order of the text has been retained, and it provides a comprehensive overview of the field without being overwhelming. Wilmore and Costill thoroughly explain all concepts so students can comprehend rather than simply memorize. The text masterfully provides a solid foundation of basic physiology from which to better interpret and understand sport and exercise physiology.

In Parts I through III, the authors review the major body systems and examine the body's acute response to exercise and its chronic response to training. In Part IV, students learn how the environment affects these responses. Part V examines various approaches used to optimize performance. Part VI focuses on unique concerns of special populations involved in physical activity, and Part VII examines the importance of physical activity to lifelong health.

Updated information:
The second edition has been updated to include current information regarding the following:
  • Structure and compartmentalization of myofibrils and the sliding filament theory
  • Neuromuscular factors and individual muscle fiber hypertrophy with resistance training
  • Ergogenic aids including L-tryphtophan, branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs), L-carnitine, creatine, chromium, and glycerol
  • Recent results from longitudinal studies of older athletes
  • And much more!
Audiences:
Text for undergraduate and graduate courses in exercise physiology. Reference for exercise scientists, sports medicine specialists, athletic trainers, sports physical therapists, physical educators, kinesiotherapists, fitness specialists, and graduate students in exercise science.
