Welcome to your Exercise Physiology reading list. Here you will find the resources to support you throughout this module.
There are no essential texts for this module. Instead, students may choose one or more texts from the “Recommended Reading” selection, based on their personal preferences for textbook style and presentation. Students may also use relevant peer reviewed journals to supplement the resources listed below. Academic staff will assist with selection and interpretation of peer reviewed research journal papers.
Your module leader and contributor(s) can advise on the relevance of peer reviewed research publications. They will be used extensively in the third year. It is vital you show evidence in your work that you have read, understood and applied research evidence
Physiology of Sport and Exercise. 6th edn by Physiology of Sport and Exercise, Sixth Edition With Web Study Guide, frames research findings in physiology in a reader-friendly format, making this textbook a favorite of instructors and students alike. This resource offers a simple way for students to develop an understanding of the body's abilities to perform various types and intensities of exercise and sport, to adapt to stressful situations, and to improve its physiological capacities. Written by a team of distinguished researchers, all past presidents of the American College of Sports Medicine, this updated sixth edition has been enhanced with new elements to facilitate learning comprehension. The redesigned photos, illustrations, and medical artwork of the fifth edition that clarified difficult concepts and illustrated how the body performs are now complemented by new digital components. Seven animations have been added, bringing the total to 25 and providing a dynamic way to experience course material. The 60 audio clips provide explanations of complex physiological processes to aid students' understanding of important illustrations in the text, and approximately 20 video clips from leaders in the field discuss recent developments and real-world applications to help students connect theoretical and practical concepts. Corresponding icons throughout the text notify students when digital elements are available to complement the materials. In addition to the improved digital components, Physiology of Sport and Exercise, Sixth Edition, features new and updated content based on the latest research in the field: - Updated information on high-intensity interval training (HIIT), interactions between resistance training and diet, and the relationship between protein intake and muscle synthesis - A reorganized chapter on ergogenic aids and a clearer organization of prohibited versus legal substances - Extensively revised chapters on physical activity and disease, including updated treatment guidelines and understandings of metabolism and disease processes - New information on the health effects of prolonged sitting as well as osteoporosis, bone health, and effects of exercise during menopause - A series of 76 Research Perspectives emphasizing new and emerging findings in the field Ease of reading has been the cornerstone of this popular text. The sixth edition of Physiology of Sport and Exercise continues to offer comprehensive coverage of the complex relationship between human physiology and exercise while maintaining an engaging and student-friendly tone. Unique learning features allow students to build their knowledge as they discover the depth and breadth of this fascinating field of study. The book's accessible layout, including chapter-opening outlines and review boxes throughout each chapter, will help students focus on the major concepts addressed. Study questions and a list of key terms at the end of the chapter increase students' opportunities for recall and self-testing. A comprehensive glossary and lists of common abbreviations and conversions provide easy reference for students as they complete labs and assignments. To expand the material and provide an enriched learning experience, both students and instructors can take advantage of the web-based ancillaries that accompany the text. In addition to new animations, videos, and audio clips, the web study guide includes comprehension quizzes to provide immediate feedback to students on their knowledge retention as well as end-of-unit mastery checks that students can use for evaluating their progress. Instructors are provided with access to an instructor guide, test package, ready-to-use chapter quizzes, and a presentation package plus image bank. The presentation package includes PowerPoint slides with key points and content, which can be modified to suit a variety of class structures. An image bank feat

Exercise Physiology for Health Fitness and Performance. 5th edn. by The new edition of Plowman and Smith,,s renowned text continues to the authoratative textbook for teaching Exercise Physiology. This engaging and beautifully designed text integrates theoretical and research based basic exercise physiology with real-world application to prepare students for exciting positions in exercise science, fitness, physical education, athletic training, rehabilitation, coaching and/or allied health professions. Accessible and engaging, the 5th Edition offers coverage of foundational science and critical exercise physiology topics. Organized by independent units (Metabolic, Cardiovascular-respiratory, Neuromuscular-skeletal, and Neuroendocrine-immune) this text offers maximum teaching flexibility for faculty and consistent presentation of of material for the student. To make the content more accessible, each unit follows a consistent sequence of presentation: basic anatomy and physiology, the measurement and meaning of variables used in exercise physiology, exercise responses, training principles, and special applications, problems, and considerations. Every chapter includes thoughtful pedagogical aids to assist in applying learning, including: Check Your Comprehension boxes and case studies to maximize the text,,s applicability. Features: - A consistent pedagogical approach in each unit ensures that basic concepts are presented first so that application that follows can more easily be understood. - Integrated coverage of both sexes and all ages, including the exercise responses of females vs males, children and adolescents vs adults, and older vs younger adults to reflect real-world situations and allow for appropriate application of exercise principles. - Engaging writing and rich illustrations that explain foundational science and relevant research to help students apply learning to real life examples. - Expanded Check Your Comprehension features now include case studies (at least one in every chapter) that engage the student as an active learner to link content to practice. - Focus on Research boxes expose students to classic studies, particularly relevant research, and new discoveries in the field. - Focus on Application boxes help students relate basic concepts to clinical situations. - Exercise icons and color coding within figures represent specific exercise response patterns and allow for quick recognition of conditions. - A vibrant art program provides a visually engaging experience for students. - Definition boxes appear on the same page as key terms to help students master the vocabulary of the field. - In-book learning aids, including chapter objectives, chapter summaries, and chapter review questions, enhance learning and recall - Online animations and videos called out in the text direct students to engaging, interactive online learning resources.
