Advanced Environmental Exercise Physiology eBook
Environmental factors, such as wind speed and precipitation, can increase injury risk
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.

The control of gene expression in skeletal muscle has been an area of active research for many years.
Physical Activity Epidemiology-2nd Edition
Costs and barriers associated with a behavior have been recognized as important influences on that behavior since theories about how people make decisions began to proliferate in the 1950s (Janis and Mann 1977).
Advanced Exercise Endocrinology
The nonhomeostatic control of feeding and the operation of hedonic neural substrates that facilitate food intake despite supranormal body fat accumulation instruct us that the prerequisites for maintaining healthy body mass level are restraint in eating food, high levels of physical activity, and periodic episodes of weight loss.
Advanced Exercise Endocrinology eBook
In the United States and Europe, between 5% and 8% of the adult population is estimated to suffer from T2D, and in genetically prone subpopulations, the prevalence may be as high as approximately 50% (Fr�sig & Richter, 2009).
