Physiology of Sport and Exercise, Seventh Edition With Web Study
Guide, continues its legacy as a top physiology textbook and
favorite of instructors and students alike. Combining research with
extensive visual aids, this resource offers a simple way for
students to develop an understanding of the body's abilities to
perform various types and intensities of exercise and sport, to
adapt to stressful situations, and to improve its physiological
capacities. Written by a team of distinguished researchers, all
past presidents of the American College of Sports Medicine, this
seventh edition has been updated based on the most recent position
stands, standards, and guidelines in the field of sport and
exercise physiology. Throughout the text, updated photos join with
the superb illustrations and medical artwork to clarify difficult
concepts and illustrate how the body performs. Digital components
found in the web study guide now include 26 animations that offer a
dynamic way to experience physiological concepts, and 66 audio
clips that provide explanations of complex physiological processes
to aid students' understanding of important illustrations in the
text. Leaders in the field discuss recent developments and
real-world applications in 27 video clips to help students connect
theoretical and practical concepts. Corresponding icons throughout
the text notify students when digital elements are available to
complement the materials. In addition to the expanded digital
components, Physiology of Sport and Exercise, Seventh Edition,
features new and updated content based on the latest research in
the field: Additional information on overtraining and exercise
addiction Expanded content on fatigue and mobility in aging New
sections on epigenetics, bioinformatics, and neuromuscular function
New information on exercise genomics New Research Perspectives
emphasizing emerging findings in the field, and a new Research
Perspectives Finder to help students locate key content quickly
Ease of reading has been the standout feature of this popular text.
The seventh edition continues to offer comprehensive coverage of
the complex relationship between human physiology and exercise
while maintaining an engaging and student-friendly tone. Unique
learning features paired with an accessible layout, including
chapter-opening outlines and review boxes throughout each chapter,
will help students focus on the major concepts addressed. Study
questions and a list of key terms at the end of the chapter
