This thoroughly revised, updated Fifth Edition textbook provides excellent coverage of exercise physiology concepts integrated with relevant scientific information. A basic foundation to understand nutrition, energy transfer and exercise training, it unites the topics of physical conditioning, sports nutrition, body composition, weight control and more. Chapters contain bulleted Objectives and Summaries that promote mastery of the material. A "Focus on Research" section features synopses of published studies, and interviews with nine contemporary scientists inspire students to realize their professional potential. "Integrative Questions" pose open-ended questions for considerable reflection on complex concepts. Many new additions enhance this must-have text.
