Read the foreword for the text dedicated to the memory of Michael L. Pollock, PhD.
Tapering and Peaking for Optimal Performance
Although the complexities of a group taper can be daunting, the basic structure of a segment of relative rest
following the regular season followed by a time of serious training culminating in a taper is a reasonable strategy for team coaches to adopt.
Advanced Environmental Exercise Physiology
Environmental factors, such as wind speed and precipitation, can increase injury risk
Physical Activity and Obesity eBook-2nd Edition
The importance of evaluating overweight individuals has increased as the epidemic of overweight has worsened.
Practical ECG for Exercise Science and Sports Medicine eBook
Examine enlargement conditions and study supporting ECGs used to illustrate them.
Advanced Cardiovascular Exercise Physiology
Aerobic exercise training has a variety of hemostatic effects that together provide a cardioprotective effect
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.
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.
Recovery for Performance in Sport
While performance outcomes are often the central focus for any athlete or sport scientist, compression garments may have greater advantages to improve recovery following an exercise bout (Duffield, Cannon, and King 2010).
Clinical Exercise Physiology 3rd Edition eBook
Initially, exercise and physical activity should focus on cardiovascular (i.e., aerobic) modes.
