Summary

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.

In 1994 and again in 1999, respected scholars Jack Wilmore and David Costill published the first and second editions of "Physiology of Sport and Exercise," presenting a solid foundation of basic exercise physiology and redefining the discipline's standard for textbooks. Now, with "Physiology of Sport and Exercise, Third Edition," the renowned authors offer an improved version of their comprehensive text 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.

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.

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.

"Physiology of Sport and Exercise, Third Edition" raises the standard for sport and exercise physiology textbooks. It's a must-read for every student and professional in the field.
