Exercise Physiology: For Health and Sports Performance brings together all the essential human anatomy and applied physiology that students of exercise science, physical education and sports coaching will need to know.

Written in a friendly, accessible style and containing a wide range of features to help develop understanding, this book provides a complete one-stop-shop for exercise physiology broken down into three fundamental sections; Foundations of Exercise Physiology, Applied Exercise Physiology and the new part three – Exercise Prescription.

With section one and two examining the theory, testing and practical applications of Exercise Physiology, this new section reflects the changes in the field by increasing focus on physical activity and special populations and helps provides a more complete course text for any exercise physiology course at universities around the world.

The newly revised book is key reading for undergraduate and postgraduate students in the fields of Exercise Physiology, Sports Performance, Sports Therapy, Fitness and Personal Training and other related sport science courses.
