Overview

Instant Notes In Sport And Exercise Physiology / Edition 1

Written primarily for undergraduates but also for professionals needing a quick reference, this study guide describes how each body system responds to acute and chronic exercise, how such factors as nutrition and attitude fit in, and how exercise contributes to the general health of children, adults and seniors. It begins by examining the effects of force and power on energy, sources of energy, the effects of muscle contraction and control, pulmonary and cardiovascular adaptations, integrated neural and hormonal control of exercise, nutrition, ergogenic aids, training for performance, environmental stress, body composition, disease, and exercising by prescription.
