Description

For a one-semester, undergraduate course in Exercise Physiology. Also a useful prerequisite text for more advanced exercise-related courses. Unlike most exercise physiology texts that are excessive in size and scope, this unique text/manual focuses on core topics explained in a concise writing style. Written and illustrated by authors who are both research scientists as well as teachers, it features original illustrations designed to be colored in by students. Each of the drawings-which range from simple to complex-focuses on a few important points, is clearly labeled in plain English, and is related to other drawings through the use of recurring icons and consistent color symbolism.show more
