Details about Exercise Physiology: Nutrition, Energy, and Human Performance
Exercise Physiology: Nutrition, Energy, and Human Performance PDF free download – this seventh edition reflects our continued commitment to integrate the concepts and science of the different disciplines that contribute to a more comprehensive understanding and appreciation of modern-day exercise physiology. Consistent with previous editions, we believe firmly that the content domain of exercise physiology must be predicated on the logical and natural flow of basic knowledge concerning nutrient-energy intake, nutrient-energy metabolism, and systems physiology as related to submaximal and maximal human movement. Current concepts of energy balance intimately link the role of physical inactivity to the “creeping obesity” epidemic that continues to afflict the world’s population. We are encouraged that the medical establishment and governmental agencies have finally acknowledged regular physical activity as an important weapon in the armamentarium for prevention and rehabilitation of diverse disease states, including obesity. We are gratified with the small part we have played in the education of more than 350,000 undergraduate and graduate students who have used this text since the publication of the first edition in 1981. A source of great pride for us is that some of the first students enrolled in our own classes that used this text have gone on to earn advanced degrees in the same or similar fields. This tradition of textbook adoption has now been passed down to their students, many of whom comprise the next generation of aspiring teachers, exercise specialists, and researchers. In fact, one of us (VK) has had the opportunity on three different occasions to teach students whose parents were former students. We are forever grateful to our former teachers and mentors for igniting a spark that has not diminished. We hope you will become as excited as we first were (and continue to be) in the science of exercise physiology and human performance.
