Book Description

November 3, 2009 0736074686 978-0736074681 1

Students entering advanced study of environmental physiology may have little experience in researching environmental physiology or may not realize the depth and breadth of the field. Advanced Environmental Exercise Physiology offers the first complete look at the scope and major ideas of environmental exercise physiology. It provides students with a solid grounding in prominent research topics and a thorough understanding of the key concepts and current debates in the field.

 

Using an integrative approach, Advanced Environmental Exercise Physiology, the first book in Human Kinetics’ Advanced Exercise Physiology series, considers the human capacity to exercise in and tolerate various environments. Readers will examine the major impact of each environment explored, and they will discover areas of current debate to stimulate further research. The text also helps students directly link the research to athletic and occupational situations in various environments.

 

Through Advanced Environmental Exercise Physiology, students will learn the following:

    The initial physiological responses upon exposure to an environment that a person is not adapted to

    How the body adapts to repeated exposure to an environment

    How various environments affect the ability to exercise and work

    Individual variability in response to stressful environments

 

Readers will also gain a firm knowledge of the application of basic exercise physiology to specific environmental stressors by looking at the countermeasures that people can take to minimize the impact of environmental stressors. Among the issues explored in this text are the effects of heat, hydration, and cold in the thermal environment; diving, altitude training, and other pressure effects on the human system; and the influences that pollution and air quality have on exercise. The text also explores the microgravity (space) environment and chronobiological rhythms and their effects on exercise performance.

 

Advanced Environmental Exercise Physiology addresses the primary environmental factors affecting people when they are exercising and competing in sport, and it provides evidence-based information with numerous references. By linking research with recommendations for real-world situations, this text serves as an invaluable resource for students and professionals alike.

 

Human Kinetics’ Advanced Exercise Physiology series offers books for advanced undergraduate and graduate students as well as professionals in exercise science and kinesiology. These books highlight the complex interaction of the various systems both at rest and during exercise. Each text in this series offers a clear and concise explanation of the system and details how each is affected by acute exercise and chronic exercise training.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to understand Graduate-level book August 30, 2013
By Sara
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The entire Advanced Exercise Physiology series is absolutely riveting. The text is written at an easy-to-understand graduate level and does not belabor the elementary concepts of physiology; instead, it builds on assumed prior knowledge of fundamental concepts to provide a more through understanding within a specific niche.
