In-depth discussion of all areas of exercise physiology makes this text an invaluable resource for students in exercise science, kinesiology, sports medicine, human biodynamics, and physical education.


A text for an advanced undergraduate course, or reference for beginning graduate students, on the functioning of the body during exercise. The focus is on human bioenergetics and the description of performance in terms of energy transduction from cell to whole-body levels. This revised edition reflects the growth and expansion of the field since the first edition was published in 1984. The authors support their conclusions with original data sets, which are included. Also included are original figures, tables, and graphs. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
