Description - The Endocrine System in Sports and Exercise by William J. Kraemer
The Encyclopaedia of Sports Medicine is a multi-volume IOC Medical Commission publication, in collaboration with the International Federation of Sports Medicine. Each book is designed to present state-of-the-art information on current topics of specific clinical and scientific importance. The Endocrine System in Sports and Exercise addresses a vitally important area of physiological functioning that has become the focus of a great deal of attention during the past twenty years. The acute responses and chronic adaptations of the human endocrine system to the muscular activity involved in conditioning exercise, physical labour, and sport activities must be understood in order to better plan programs of physical fitness, preparation for sports competition, and the medical care of athletes. The Co-Editors of this volume have divided the general topic area into logical and important sub-topics. The leading researchers in the world have been recruited to contribute chapters on the various sub-topics. There is no other reference in existence that addresses the topic area in such complete and authoritative fashion.
