Advanced Cardiovascular Exercise Physiology eBook
It is not unusual for athletes to exhibit an �abnormal� ECG due to the effect of exercise training on the anatomy and autonomic control of the heart. However, it is important to understand which ECG abnormalities may be physiologic and which are likely to be pathologic.
The Athlete's Clock eBook
Studies indicate a disproportionate number of professional athletes are born in the first quarter of the year, and grow up in cities with populations less than 500,000 but greater than 10,000.
Motor Control in Everyday Actions

NSCA's Guide to Tests and Assessments
Information provided by a lactate threshold test has a number of purposes. By understanding the role that lactate plays in exercise metabolism, the exercise physiologist can use the information from lactate threshold tests to predict proper racing and training paces, and assess the fitness of a subject or the efficacy of the training program.
Recovery for Performance in Sport
The water-immersion recovery technique consists of covering part of the body, or the whole body, in water.
It is not unusual for athletes to exhibit an “abnormal” ECG due to the effect of exercise training on the anatomy and autonomic control of the heart. However, it is important to understand which ECG abnormalities may be physiologic and which are likely to be pathologic.
