Developed by the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM), this book thoroughly prepares you to become an ACSM Certified Group Exercise Instructor. Following an introduction, which includes a profile of a group exercise instructor, the book covers such topics as leadership, class design, legal issues and responsibilities, and exercise science. The book’s accompanying video demonstrates how the techniques discussed in the book are put into practice during an actual group exercise class.
Written at a graduate level, the Second Edition of ACSM’s Advanced Exercise Physiology enables experienced students to develop an in-depth understanding of exercise physiology along with its related topics and applications. Both the immediate and long-term effects of exercise on individual body systems are described in detail, and the text emphasizes how each body system’s physiological response to exercise is interdependent. Moreover, it examines how these physiological responses are affected by heat, cold, hypoxia, microgravity, rest, and hyperbaria.
This Second Edition features a team of international authors and editors whose expertise spans general physiology, exercise physiology, and research. Together, they have substantially revised, updated, and reorganized the text to incorporate feedback from both instructors and students.
Approaching motor development as the study of change, Lifelong Motor Development, 7th Edition, offers the most up-to-date, comprehensive, research-based coverage of motor behavior across the life span available today.
Rather than introducing a single theory, the book covers the most prominent theories and views that underscore our understanding of change in motor development to help students truly understand the multicausal and complex nature of motor development across the lifespan.
Now in vibrant full color, the 7th Edition offers much that is new, including new content that reflects the latest research, new pedagogy, new illustrations, and an enhanced suite of resources that help students succeed and ensure easy integration into the classroom.
