Overview

While adding greater coverage of the theoretical aspects of body composition, Heyward (emeritus, exercise science, U. of New Mexico) and her former student Wagner retain and update explanations of the applied aspects of body composition assessment for practitioners in the new edition of this textbook. They also expand coverage of field methods and body composition equations to take into account populations found in clinical settings, as well the methods and equations for healthy populations found in the first edition.
