Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Scott H. Grindel, MD (Spectrum Health - Reed City Campus)
Description: This book is the result of an honorary symposium for Dr. Martin Stauch and brings together presentations by internationally recognized authorities in the field of exercise physiology.
Purpose: The purpose is to identify limiting factors in exercise tolerance in the elite athlete and the athlete with chronic disease. It also identifies strategies to extend these limits in function. It obtains these objectives well.
Audience: The book is written for the student, resident, or clinician with a strong interest in exercise physiology. It contains information from some of the world's foremost authorities in exercise physiology.
Features: Exceptional references are cited at the end of each section. The book contains typical tables and diagrams of research studies that are adequate for the subject.
Assessment: This is an outstanding book covering the gamut of the exercise physiology of sports medicine. It contains up-to-date information, as of 1994, presented by world authorities in the area. It is highly recommended for those interested in exercise physiology and its use in sports performance. Any bookstore that services this group should have it on hand.

The 46 talks and papers explore a condition by which a person is unable to sustain a particular work rate sufficiently to complete a given task successfully; at its extremes it limits an elite athlete from even greater performance, and keeps an impaired person from maintaining even a mild domestic routine. Combining clinical and performance studies, they cover the physiological basis of muscular fatigue, systemic limitations to maximum exercise in healthy subjects, sports-specific limitations to exercise in health and disease, and enhancing exercise tolerance.
