This innovative book incorporates two new integrative approaches to exercise physiology. Each of the three major units (the cardiovascular-respiratory system, the metabolic system, and the neuromuscular-skeletal system) follows a consistent sequence of presentation, namely: basic anatomy and physiology (including neuro-hormonal regulation), the measurement and meaning of exercise physiology variables, exercise responses, training principles and adaptations, and special applications, problems, or considerations. All of the populations encountered by professionals in the workplace (children, adolescents, young to middle aged adults and the elderly) are considered within each chapter. Coverage of special topics such as strength training for children, post-menopausal osteoporosis, eating disorders in adolescents and young adults, and immunology and overtraining in elite athletes highlights specific age and sex concerns. For professionals working in the field of exercise.About the Author:
