Fully updated, revised and consolidated into one single volume, the fourth edition of Kinanthropometry and Exercise Physiology offers the best theoretically contextualised, practical resource for instructors and students available.
Incorporating substantial sections on kinanthropometry, exercise physiology, energy systems and the application of science in health and high performance settings, the book covers the basics of measurement in exercise science through to advanced methods, and includes brand new chapters on:
Pre-exercise screening and health risk stratificationFunctional movement assessmentPoint of care testingAnthropometry standardsAnaerobic power and capacityHistory of exercise for health benefitsMonitoring training loads in high-performance athletesMeasuring game style in team sports
Offering on-line access to newly developed exercise science measurement tools through the Exercise Science Toolkit - www.exercisesciencetoolkit.com - no other book offers such a complete resource, from the science of kinanthropometry and exercise physiology to their applications in health and performance, through practical, interactive learning. This book is an essential companion for students on any sport and exercise science-related degree programme and any instructor leading practical, laboratory-based classes.
