This is a new addition to bestselling range. "Advanced Exercise Endocrinology" presents a comprehensive examination of the relationship between physical activity and hormone function. It offers the most up-to-date information on the rapidly developing field of exercise endocrinology. The book explains how the human body responds to exercise in order to support the increased energy demand. Readers will explore topics including body fluid balance during exercise and at rest, endocrine and autonomic control of cardio respiratory function, hormonal control of energy expenditure and the role of reproductive hormones in exercise. It is intended to help students and professionals from many health fields better understand how interactions between physical activity and hormone action work to maintain health, improve exercise performance and prevent metabolic disabilities. This is the fourth volume in the Human Kinetics' "Advanced Exercise Physiology" series which provides books for advanced undergraduate and graduate students as well as professionals in exercise science and kinesiology.
