Updated for its Fourth Edition with increased art and photos, this undergraduate exercise physiology textbook integrates basic exercise physiology with research studies to stimulate learning, allowing readers to apply principles in the widest variety of exercise and sport science careers. The book has comprehensive coverage, including integrated material on special populations, and a flexible organization of independent units, so instructors can teach according to their preferred approach. Each unit is designed with a consistent and comprehensive sequence of presentation: basic anatomy and physiology, the measurement and meaning of variables important to understanding exercise physiology, exercise responses, training principles, and special applications, problems, and considerations. Plowman & Smith provides a consistently organized, comprehensive approach to Exercise Physiology with excellent supporting ancillary materials. Its ability to relate up to date research to key concepts and integrate special populations makes this book ideal for classroom use.

The Science of Fitness: Power, Performance, and Endurance clearly explains the vital connection between diet and exercise in the human body. With this knowledge, you can use the right exercise and nutrition to obtain a higher quality life, prevent disease, and slow the aging process. Authored in a straightforward style and with color images throughout, this book explores the cellular science behind fitness, protein synthesis, and healthy living. With it you will learn the most recent and important discoveries in the relationships between physical fitness, nutrition, weight loss, and weight management. It provides key information on the body’s mitochondrial processes and their role in aging, along with well-informed discussions on general nutrition, sports nutrition, exercise physiology, how to enhance athletic performance, and how exercise strengthens the mind. Whether you are interested in how to eat healthy, train for your first (or next) marathon, take your fitness to the next level, find the best super foods, or simply want to improve your vitality through healthy, doable practices, this book will help you on your journey regardless of age or fitness level. Presents the connection between exercise, nutrition, and physiology in a way that is ideal for both experienced athletes and newcomers Provides the scientific basis for mitochondrial functions and their relationship to fitness, protein synthesis, quality of life, and the aging process Synthesizes the latest research on nutrition, sports nutrition, super foods, and the brain/body connection Co-Authored by legendary cyclist Greg LeMond, who illustrates key points using his own athletic journey

Children are not mini-adults. They are growing and maturing at their own individual rates and their physiological responses to exercise are dependent on a large number of variables as they progress through childhood and adolescence into adult life. Understanding has been limited by the fact that measurement techniques and equipment developed for use with adults are often not appropriate or even ethical for use with young people. These issues are addressed in this book which provides an analysis of physiological responses to exercise in relation to age, growth, maturation and sex. Structured in an easy, accessible way for students and lecturers Well referenced, including a further reading list with each chapter Numerous standard textbook elements, including learning objectives, key points and an extensive glossary of terms and commonly used abbreviations The editor and contributors are all active researchers in paediatric exercise physiology with experience of teaching modules in this area
