Determining age-related developmental changes in body size (i.e., height and weight) or weight relative to height (BMI) is inadequate for understanding the actual changes that occur, because the body is composed of many different tissues.
Tapering and Peaking for Optimal Performance
Scientific evidence explains why the taper is important in training programs.
Advanced Environmental Exercise Physiology
Even after centuries of research, the fundamental system of control of thermal balance in humans, as well as other mammals and homeotherms, remains controversial.
Practical ECG for Exercise Science and Sports Medicine
Learn how the physiological stress of exercise elicits a predictable cascade of responses on the ECG.
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.
Physical Activity Epidemiology 2nd Edition eBook
The epidemiologic models previously described provide a framework for considering the association among variables in an attempt to determine cause and effect.
Physical Activity Epidemiology-2nd Edition
Weight gain resulting from excess storage of fat is ultimately explained by an intake of calories that exceeds those expended.
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.
Physiological Tests for Elite Athletes 2nd Edition eBook
A variety of measurement approaches have been used to examine the anticipatory skill (i.e., advance information usage patterns) of elite and subelite performers involved in �open,� interceptive sport skills.
Physiology of Sport and Exercise With Web Study Guide-5th Edition
Traditionally, exercise physiologists have recommended one of three regimens to improve aerobic power: continuous exercise at a moderate to high intensity; long, slow (low-intensity) exercise; or interval training.
