Bridging the gap between exercise physiology principles and clinical practice, this text provides comprehensive coverage of both traditional basic science and clinical exercise physiology principles. The book presents clinical applications and examples that connect theory to practice. More than 500 full-color illustrations and numerous graphs and tables complement the text. Reader-friendly features including Perspective Boxes, Research Highlights, Biography Boxes, and Case Studies engage readers and reinforce key concepts. A bonus three-dimensional interactive anatomy CD-ROM from Primal Pictures and a Student Resource CD-ROM accompany the book. LiveAdvise online faculty support and student tutoring services are available free with the text. It is part of the "Doody's Core Titles[trademark] 2009."
