Developed by the American College of Sports Medicine for undergraduate students, this introduction offers the essential foundation students need for advancing their studies in exercise science and related areas such as athletic training and sports medicine. The text shows how exercise science principles are applied in practice so that students can learn to help people optimize their health and athletic performance. All the core disciplines of exercise science are covered, including biomechanics, exercise physiology, sports psychology, motor control and learning, nutrition, and sports injury.
The emphasis in this new book is on providing students with a foundation of all areas of Exercise Science. It provides a broad description of the field as well as an introduction of some basic science that the field relies upon. Career potentials in these fields are also discussed.

The fifth edition of Introduction to Exercise Science introduces students to every core area of study in the discipline. It comprises concise chapters which introduce the history, key lines of inquiry relating to both health and performance, technology, certifications, professional associations, and career opportunities associated with each area. No other book offers such a wide-ranging, evidence-based introduction to exercise science. Written by leading and experienced experts, chapters include: reading and interpreting literature measurement in exercise science anatomy in exercise science exercise physiology exercise epidemiology athletic training exercise and sport nutrition biomechanics motor control exercise and sport psychology Packed with pedagogical features—from journal abstract examples to study questions and further reading suggestions—and accompanied by a website including practical lab exercises, Introduction to Exercise Science is a complete resource for a hands-on introduction to the core tenets of exercise science. It is an engaging and invaluable textbook for students beginning undergraduate degrees in Kinesiology, Sport & Exercise Science, Sports Coaching, Strength & Conditioning, Athletic Training, Sports Therapy, Sports Medicine, and Health & Fitness.
This textbook integrates basic exercise physiology with research studies to stimulate learning, allowing readers to apply principles in the widest variety of exercise and sport science careers. It combines basic exercise physiology with special applications and contains flexible organisation of independent units.
This complementary book to ACSM's Guidelines for Exercise Testing and Prescription elaborates on the Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities (KSAs) you need to study for any of the American College of Sports Medicine certification exams. It also serves as a valuable professional resource behind the Guidelines. New content includes updated research throughout and a reorganization of the KSAs to correspond with the sixth edition of ACSM's Guidelines. The book features both theoretical and practical physiological concepts and relates the examples to exercise testing, training and programming, thus providing a complete perspective on clinical exercise physiology and fitness.
Written by international experts in physiology, exercise physiology, and research, ACSM's Advanced Exercise Physiology gives students an advanced level of understanding of exercise physiology. It emphasizes the acute and chronic effects of exercise on various physiological systems in adults and the integrative nature of these physiological responses. Chapters detail how different body systems respond to exercise. Systems include nervous, skeletal, muscular, respiratory, cardiovascular, gastrointestinal, metabolic, endocrine, immune, renal, and hematopoietic systems. Additional chapters explain how these responses are altered by heat, cold, hypoxia, microgravity, bed rest, and hyperbaria. Milestones of Discovery pages describe classic or memorable experiments in exercise physiology.
This flashy textbook includes colorful tables and diagrams and emphasizes both practical applications and the interrelationships among energy intake, energy production during exercise, and physiologic systems that support physical activity and training responsiveness. Sections cover the historical roots of exercise physiology and the basics of the scientific method; nutrition and energy transport; the fundamental physiologic support systems; the application of the scientific principles of exercise training; factors affecting physiological function, energy transfer, and exercise performance; and optimizing body composition, aging, and health-related exercise benefits.
