Summary

This introductory text for undergraduate exercise physiology courses provides students a clear understanding of the physiological principles underlying the process of physical conditioning. The book also focuses much more than other texts on how to apply these principles to individuals training for sport and physical fitness.

Authors Jack H. Wilmore and David L. Costill are renowned experts in sport and exercise physiology who have worked extensively with elite and aspiring athletes. In Training for Sport and Activity (Third Edition), they cover

* the body's responses to acute exercise,
* the changes the body undergoes in response to either chronic exercise or a long-term program of physical training,
* the factors that can help optimize sport performance, and
* special conditioning considerations for young athletes, masters athletes, and female athletes.

The text also includes a helpful chapter on assessing human performance that details how the various components of fitness and performance are measured.

Students will benefit from the book's user-friendly format. In addition to the study questions, a summary, and references that conclude each chapter, the book contains a glossary of terms as well as charts and illustrations depicting the important points of the text.

Training for Sport and Physical Activity (Third Edition) is now available exclusively from Human Kinetics Publishers--just in time for fall course adoptions!
