With Molecular and Cellular Exercise Physiology, you'll gain cutting-edge information on how exercise modulates cellular physiology. You'll be able to use that knowledge to develop better training regimens and injury-prevention and rehabilitation programs. You'll also be able to improve performance. The book is unique in that it is the first comprehensive text to address the effects of physical activity on the cellular and molecular level.Molecular and Cellular Exercise Physiology highlights the potential of physical training in the prevention and treatment of chronic diseases while thoroughly exploring these topics:--Fundamental cellular and molecular mechanisms responsible for changes in stroke volume, blood gas homeostasis, pH alterations, blood pressure, and osmosis in response to exercise-How the exercise effects are mediated and translated into specific cellular and subcellular alterationsRecent fascinating advances in molecular techniques have extended the field of exercise physiology and enabled researchers to address the mechanisms involved on a subcellular and molecular level. Molecular and Cellular Exercise Physiology is a vital reference to help you stay on top of this exciting field.
