A flow chart of motivation types and the factors that affect motivation.
Advanced Environmental Exercise Physiology
Urban environments with high level of pollutants cause concern for outdoor exercisers
Tapering and Peaking for Optimal Performance eBook
Scientific evidence explains why the taper is important in training programs.
Physical Activity and Obesity-2nd Edition
The importance of evaluating overweight individuals has increased as the epidemic of overweight has worsened.
Advanced Neuromuscular Exercise Physiology
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.
The Athlete's Clock
We take a closer look at studies into the effects daily activity and caloric restriction have on animals, and what the results might mean for humans.
Biomechanics of Skeletal Muscles
When a fully activated muscle or a fiber is stretched with a moderate speed from one constant length to another, the force recorded on its end exceeds the maximum isometric force at the same muscle length.
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 Aspects of Sport Training and Performance With Web Resource-2nd Edition
It has been demonstrated that exercise training in previously sedentary individuals has beneficial effects in terms of reducing the incidence of upper respiratory tract infections (URTI) (Nieman et al. 1990; Nieman, Hensen, et al. 1993).
