SPORT AND EXERCISE SCIENCE: AN INTRODUCTON SECOND EDITION provides a broad-based foundation of the three major areas that underpin the scientific study of sport and exercise science, thus helping students to develop a sound understanding of human anatomy, physiology, nutrition, metabolism, biomechanics and psychology related to sport, exercise and health.
Key features include:
-illustrated throughout with full colour diagrams and photographs, helping to convey difficult concepts easily.
-extensive activities, time-out boxes, summaries and chapter objectives to encourage and reinforce understanding.
-updated throughout to help students keep pace with developments in Sports Science.
Supported with a free-to-access website that offers students online activities and annotated animations that show complex phsyiological processes, SPORT AND EXERCISE SCIENCE: AN INTRODUCTON SECOND EDITION is the essential companion to the student studying Sport Science at degree level.
