Totally revised and updated, this second edition of the
well-received Physique, Fitness, and Performance retains the unique
integrated approach of its predecessor, examining the relationship
of structure to function in human performance. Far surpassing the
limited focus of standard exercise and fitness books, it combines
the morphological study of physique relative to body structure,
body size and body composition with the applied interaction of
muscular, cardiovascular, motor, and metabolic system capacities,
abilities, and skills developed and acquired through exercise and
training programs.; Establishing a background and history for the
current prevalent interrelationships between physique and physical
performance, the book begins by outlining the morphological,
physical, motor, and metabolic component areas of study involved in
physical training. Part One introduces the study of the
structure-function relationships, relating body structure, size,
and composition to fitness and physical performance.; Part Two and
Part Three present an overview of the quantitative and qualitative
study of physical and physiological conditioning, motor learning,
and motor control, specifically regarding the development of motor
skill within general/open loop and specific/closed loop parameter
guidelines. It also covers fatigue and its physiological and
psychological effects on training processes. Part Four explores
nutrition and the utilization of carbohydrates, fats, proteins,
water, vitamins, and minerals during physical training.; It
includes an overview of lipids, lipoproteins, cholesterol, and
atherosclerosis; dietary goals and guidelines; and risk factors
relating to heart disease and obesity within health and fitness
parameter guidelines. Finally, extensive appendices present the
pertinent figures, tables, and forms used in evaluation and
programming. Including chapter summaries, glossaries, and
references, as well as detailed and extensive appendices for
measurement, assessment, and nutrient intake guidelines, Physique,
Fitness, and Performance, Second Edition provides a unique extended
research base for exercise physiology professionals.
