Written by experts in exercise physiology, exercise science, and biomechanics, this volume focuses specifically on exercise science in relation to athletic performance and to the diagnosis, management, and prevention of athletic injuries. The text is logically organized into sections on energy metabolism, exercise physiology, organ system responses to exercise, general concerns in applied exercise science, sports biomechanics, and applied sports physiology. The biomechanics and sports physiology sections focus on particular sports, to determine specific diagnosis and treatment aspects. The book also includes chapters on exercise in children and the elderly, environmental influences on physical performance, overtraining, chronobiology, and microgravity.Voimax can be primarily attributed to reduced circulating plasma volume and its effect on central venous filling pressure and venous return ... Morphologic Changes in Skeletal Muscle Muscle atrophy resulting from unloading and relative disuse has been proposed as a ... The relative reduction in muscle fiber CSA tended to be greater in fast-twitch (23% to 36%) compared to slow-twitch fibers ( 16%) (Fig.
