Description

This new second edition of Laboratory Manual for Exercise Physiology offers comprehensive coverage of the basic testing procedures used in the assessment of human performance, health and wellbeing. Students learn all the skills needed to perform a wide range of tests and critically analyse data. These skills are gained through the text's extensive collection of laboratory activities. The essential guide allows students to explore various ways of testing. These include tests for oxygen, anaerobic and aerobic fitness, musculoskeletal fitness, pulmonary fitness, body composition and ECG. New features in this edition include an updated web study guide for students, new chapter content, a comprehensive appendix and colour photographs.
