This book discusses the maximal power and capacity of the three major biochemical pathways -- aerobic (oxygen consumption), anaerobic lactic (muscle lactate accumulation in absence of oxygen consumption), and anaerobic alactic (phosphocreatine hydrolysis) metabolism - as well as the factors that limit them. It also discusses the metabolic and cardio-pulmonary mechanisms of the dynamic response to exercise. The way and extent to which the power and capacity of the three major energy metabolisms are affected under a number of different conditions, such as training, hypoxia and microgravity, are also described.

"This book focuses on the cellular and molecular pathways that contribute to the regulation of muscular contraction during exercise, integrating human physiology, chemistry, and sport performance. ... The audience for this book is likely to be in academia -- undergraduates, graduates, researchers, and/or professors." (Erik H. Van Iterson, Doody's Book Reviews, October, 2015)
