Overview

How can you make the best textbook in the field of sport and exercise physiology better? Leave it to authors Jack Wilmore and David Costill, two of the field's most respected scholars, to do so. The thoroughly revised second edition of Physiology of Sport and Exercise redefines the discipline's standard for textbooks.Here's what makes Physiology of Sport and Exercise an even better resource:
  • A better organization of the field's subject matter
  • Dynamic graphic presentations-featuring four-color photographs, graphs, and illustrations-that complement the text and encourage a deeper understanding
  • Clarity of language and reader-friendly presentation of information including color-coded chapters, chapter outlines, key terms and points, summary boxes, study questions, glossary and index
  • Thoroughly updated information based on the latest research findings
  • A new student study guide that features active learning exercises
  • Metric as well as imperial measurements
  • The new edition includes dramatically improved and expanded supporting ancillary materials to help instructors teach the course.
  • The text's supporting materials include the following:
  • An electronic Instructor Guide new to this edition, free with course adoptions
  • A revised and improved Test Bank, free with course adoptions
  • A much expanded Graphics Package for PowerPoint or slide presentations, free with course adoptions
  • Plus, instructors have the added convenience of being able to travel to a website to retrieve some of the course's ancillary materials. Now you can offer your students the very best textbook available for bringing the field of sport and exercise physiology to life. Physiology of Sport and Exercise-a powerful and engaging learning tool-offers students a jump start in their studies.

The book contains predominantly color illustrations, with some black-and-white illustrations.

Organization of the text The logical order of the text has been retained, and it provides a comprehensive overview of the field without being overwhelming. Wilmore and Costill thoroughly explain all concepts so students can comprehend rather than simply memorize. The text masterfully provides a solid foundation of basic physiology from which to better interpret and understand sport and exercise physiology. In Parts I through III, the authors review the major body systems and examine the body's acute response to exercise and its chronic response to training. In Part IV, students learn how the environment affects these responses. Part V examines various approaches used to optimize performance. Part VI focuses on unique concerns of special populations involved in physical activity, and Part VII examines the importance of physical activity to lifelong health. Updated information The second edition has been updated to include current information regarding the following: * Structure and compartmentalization of myofibrils and the sliding filament theory * Neuromuscular factors and individual muscle fiber hypertrophy with resistance training * Ergogenic aids including L-tryphtophan, branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs), L-carnitine, creatine, chromium, and glycerol * Recent results from longitudinal studies of older athletes * And much more!

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Edward M. Heath, PhD (Utah State University College of Education & Human Services)
Description: This is the third edition of the standard for undergraduate exercise physiology textbooks. The authors have updated the information and references and added a number of new figures, but have kept the same format that has made previous editions so appealing to students. The second edition was published in 1999.
Purpose: This is a comprehensive book designed for a one-semester or year-long undergraduate exercise physiology course. The authors are careful not to overwhelm students with too much information and have designed the book to keep it interesting.
Audience: The book is predominantly targeted at undergraduate students in exercise science, but it could also be an excellent resource for those working in all aspects of the exercise and wellness field. The authors are unquestionably two of the most respected exercise physiologists and their collective contributions to the field are incalculable.
Features: All of the basic areas of exercise physiology are covered and the authors have done an exceptional job of making it an appealing text for students. The colorful figures and tables are excellent and the authors include interest boxes, key points, and FYI boxes. In addition, there is an overview and outline at the beginning of each chapter and key terms and study questions at the end of each chapter. The authors have done an exemplary job of backing up their material with appropriately referenced research information and have incorporated practical information.
Assessment: This is clearly textbook leader for undergraduate exercise physiology classes. The book has excellent ancillary materials and the authors have concentrated their efforts to make using the book in a class enjoyable for both professor and student. The authors have been leaders in the field of exercise physiology for years evidenced by the incredible number of times they cite their own work throughout the book.
Pietro Tonino
This is a textbook for exercise physiology students. This book intends to deal with exercise physiology issues and to provide the student with a comprehensive review of this field. This book is written on an appropriate level for its intended audience (students). The authors are credible and experienced. This book has a clean, concise appearance, with high-quality illustrations. It is well organized. This book is an excellent addition to any reference library. Although it is intended for students, this book will also be appreciated by more experienced readers.
Booknews
A textbook for a graduate or undergraduate course, emphasizing how the body responds to the high physiological demands of physical activity. Covers the essentials of movement, energy for movement, cardiorespiratory function and performance, environmental influences on performance, optimizing performance in sport, age and sex considerations, and physical activity for health and fitness. Revised from the 1994 edition with more learning aids and supplementary material. Highly illustrated, mostly in color. Includes a glossary without pronunciation.
