Measurement and Evaluation in Physical Activity Applications Exercise Science, Physical Education, Coaching, Athletic Training, and Health

Author: Phillip A. (University of Alabama, USA) Bishop Format: Hardback Release Date: 14/08/2018

Measurement and Evaluation in Physical Activity Applications offers the most accessible, student-friendly introduction to the principles and practice of measurement in physical activity available. Fully revised and updated, the second edition provides students with a clear guide to the obstacles to good measurement, and how to apply the principles of good measurement to a range of physical activity disciplines.

Structured to reflect single-semester classes, and involving students at every stage through its rich pedagogy and accessibility, this is a crucial resource for introducing students to the principles of best practice in measurement and evaluation.

Integrated Periodization in Sports Training & Athletic Development Combining Training Methodology, Sports Psychology, and Nutrition to Optimize Performance

Integrated Periodization in Sports Training & Athletic Development Combining Training Methodology, Sports Psychology, and Nutrition to Optimize Performance

Author: Scott Howell, Tudor O. Bompa Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 26/07/2018

Integrated Periodization in Sports Training & Athletic Development considers the large problem of training specialists working in isolation and builds a case for integrated periodization as conceived by Tudor Bompa. The book begins by defining periodization as a specific theory and methodology, historically detailing how the term was formally derived, differentiating it from the current view of periodization as a Russian concept. Next, the authors clarify some common misconceptions of periodization by integrating evidence-based practice with an emphasis on sports nutrition, psychological preparation, and training methodology. The book explores sport-specific applications of integrated periodization, development of biomotor abilities, and long-term planning. A novel paradigm for viewing adaptation is introduced, moving past homeostasis to include allostasis, and one approach (Maximum Recoverable Volume) that may be used to more effectively manage fatigue is detailed. Finally, the book includes a chapter on tapering strategies to peak athletes for competition using an integrated approach

Ageing, Physical Activity and Health International Perspectives

Ageing, Physical Activity and Health International Perspectives

Author: Karin (West Chester University, USA) Volkwein-Caplan Format: Hardback Release Date: 07/03/2018

One of the most pressing questions facing society today is how to care for its burgeoning elderly population. By the year 2050, experts predict that one-third of the world's population will be over 60 years old. Health promotion for the elderly is therefore becoming an increasingly important topic in public policy and planning. This book examines the challenges presented by an ageing global population, our varying expectations of healthy ageing, and the importance of exercise and physical activity for the elderly. Drawing on empirical research from around the world, it considers the factors that influence health and well-being in later life and compares practices and policies designed to promote healthy ageing. It presents case studies from 15 countries spanning Europe, North and South America, Africa and Asia, and sheds light on how attitudes to physical activity differ across nations, regions and cultures. Ageing, Physical Activity and Health: International Perspectives is important reading for all students, researchers and practitioners with an interest in physical activity, public health, exercise science or gerontology.
