Show time: Ali started it, NFL exhibitionists ruined it
Advanced Environmental Exercise Physiology eBook
Urban environments with high level of pollutants cause concern for outdoor exercisers
Motor Control and Learning-5th Edition
Here we will discuss information processing as it relates to human motor behavior �specifically how information is processed for the specific purpose of producing skilled movement.
Reversing the Obesogenic Environment
Many factors influence whether people use physical activity resources. In this chapter we discuss the more common factors examined in the research literature, including those we think are the strongest predictors of physical activity resource use: accessibility, proximity, safety, and the presence and quality of features and amenities, aesthetics, and incivilities.
Advanced Neuromuscular Exercise Physiology eBook
Here we discuss some of the general physiological mechanisms that maintain blood pressure when muscle demands for oxygen delivery are high and also the local mechanisms that match blood flow to metabolic demand.
Latinos in U.S Sport
Latinos are often at a disadvantage compared to their white counterparts in U.S. soccer, and have found ways to create their own opportunities.
Laboratory Manual for Exercise Physiology With Web Resource
Misconceptions abound about our breathing, or ventilation (V. E). Of course, ventilation is necessary for the exchange of gases between the atmosphere and our metabolism.
Advanced Analysis of Motor Development eBook
Here we focus on the development of striking, throwing, and kicking. Most developmental studies on ballistic projectile skills have been based in developmental sequence theory, although a few studies are beginning to address issues from a dynamic systems perspective.
Statistics in Kinesiology 4th Edition eBook
Relative risk (RR), also known as the risk ratio, is a ratio of proportions. Specifically, it is a ratio of the rate of exposure in the individuals who have the condition (or response) divided by the rate of exposure in the individuals who do not have the condition.
Physiological Tests for Elite Athletes-2nd Edition
Despite the widespread integration of hydrotherapy into an athlete�s postexercise recovery regime, information regarding these interventions is largely anecdotal. Although a number of physiological responses to water immersion are well researched, the underlying mechanisms related to postexercise recovery are poorly understood.
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.
