Overview

Updated for its Third Edition, this undergraduate exercise physiology textbook integrates basic exercise physiology with research studies to stimulate learning, allowing readers to apply principles in the widest variety of exercise and sport science careers. The book combines basic exercise physiology with special applications and contains flexible organization of independent units, so instructors can teach according to their own approach.

Each unit is designed with a consistent and comprehensive sequence of presentation: basic anatomy and physiology, the measurement and meaning of variables important to understanding exercise physiology, exercise responses, training principles, and special applications, problems, and considerations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody Reviews
Reviewer: John B Dean, MPT, ATC (University of Tennessee at Knoxville)
Description: This third edition of a basic undergraduate exercise physiology textbook explores the subject using current research to emphasize importance and assist learning. Certain instances can be easily identified as clinically relevant. The previous version was published in 2007.
Purpose: This book meets its objective in presenting core exercise physiology concepts clearly and efficiently. It should have broad appeal to students and instructors in a variety of undergraduate majors.
Audience: The authors easily convey current topics with timely and relevant supporting research. The book is appropriately intended for a variety of undergraduate students majoring in exercise science and physical education.
Features: The chapters are well organized into four self-contained units that do not require that they be taught in sequence. The Focus on Research boxes offer current research examples useful for integrating into evidence-base practices. The section on balance in chapter 20 provides useful information.
Assessment: The book's flexible organization into independent units affords instructors more leeway in the way they teach.
