  • Description
    Setting the standard for more than 30 years, Exercise Physiology has helped more than 350,000 students build a solid foundation in the scientific principles underlying modern exercise physiology. This Eighth Edition is updated with the latest research in the field to give you easy-to-understand, up-to-date coverage of how nutrition, energy transfer, and exercise training affect human performance.
    • Get quick access to the resources available to help you master each section of the text with “Ancillaries at a Glance.”
    • Maximize your study time with the book’s vibrant, “magazine style” design that makes the content more engaging and accessible and key information easier to find.
    • Reinforce your understanding with Chapter Objectives, Integrative Questions that pose open-ended questions for reflection on complex concepts, and FYI sections that offer “good to know” information.
    • Gain an understanding of how researchers contribute to our knowledge of exercise physiology through engaging section-opening interviews with key figures in the field.
    • Learn how theoretical concepts relate to practical skills through “In a Practical Sense” features.
    • Access the most relevant current information in the field through figures and tables that clarify important concepts and information.
    • Gain an understanding of the past, present, and future of the profession through coverage of important milestones and future directions in the field.
