Exercise training and the cardiovascular system

Written for students and professionals working within exercise science and related health professions, Advanced Cardiovascular Exercise Physiology systematically details the effect of acute and chronic exercise training on each component of the cardiovascular system.

Readers will gain a comprehensive understanding of the cardiovascular system and learn how to apply this knowledge to their work with athletes, other active individuals and patients with cardiovascular risk factors.

Advanced Cardiovascular Exercise Physiology highlights the complex interaction of the cardiovascular system both at rest and during exercise.

Using the latest scientific and medical research, this text presents engaging discussion of cardiovascular responses and adaptions to both acute and chronic aerobic and resistance exercise training.

In addition, specific attention is paid to the beneficial effects of exercise on the individual components of the cardiovascular system and the mechanisms through which regular exercise provides cardio-protection.
