This unique, beautifully illustrated handbook presents a "back-to-basics" approach to exercise physiology, emphasizing understanding of fundamental principles rather than memorization of facts. Written and illustrated by authors who are both research scientists as well as teachers, it features 350 original illustrations that can be colored, allowing readers to quickly learn important concepts. Illustrated Principles of Exercise Physiology is an invaluable resource for students in disciplines including exercise science, physical education, anatomy and physiology, nursing, physical therapy and nutrition. FEATURES Concise, clear presentation covers all major topics in exercise physiology. Addresses varied learning styles, presenting information in three ways: once in a concisely written text, once nonverbally as a memorable diagram that can be colored, and once in a conversational figure legend that bridges the gap between text and figures. Includes 350 original pen-and-ink illustrations (ranging from simple to complex) designed to be colored, allowing readers to see information as it emerges. Unique, logical coloring scheme based on functional, anatomical, and/or artistic considerations enables readers to color every illustration without referring to a legend.Axen, Kenneth is the author of 'Illustrated Principles of Exercise Physiology', published 2000 under ISBN 9780130400222 and ISBN 013040022X.
