Exercise Physiology for Health and Sports Performancebrings together all the essential human anatomy and applied physiology that students of exercise science, physical education and sports coaching need to know.
Written in a friendly, accessible style and containing a wide range of features to help develop understanding, this book provides a complete one-stop-shop for exercise physiology.
Unlike other texts, this book is split into two key parts: the first introduces the fundamental principles of nutrition, biochemistry, cell biology, and the control, movement and transport energy systems; the second builds on this foundation by applying the theory to exercise and sports performance in practice. With this innovative approach, the text enables students to become confident in their understanding of energy generation and training principles for all sports of varying intensities and durations.
Also covers exercise in extreme environments and the applications of physical activities for health. This is the only exercise physiology textbook students will need!
