Review Text

  • By David Riddell on 10 November 2010

    This book by McArdle et al is essential reading for those studying fairly basic to moderately advanced exercise physiology. For those who want something a little easier to read, I would start with "Exercise Physiology" by Sharon Plowman and Denise Smith 3 Ed.(Exercise Physiology for Health, Fitness, and Performance also available on Amazon. For more advanced "stuff", I would also recommend "ACSM's Advanced Exercise Physiology". In my opinion, McArdle's .. book is an indispensible text for all readers interested in exercise physiology other than for those who only require a really basic knowledge of the subject. PS I own all 3 of the titles I have mentioned.As with Plowman and Smith's text: perhaps, one of the best features - the full text online access (including additional resources such as worksheets with answers, quiz banks and much more).

    I am a personal trainer who, as an ex-athlete and coach, am disappointed by the publications on sports training put out for personal trainers. This book covers the gap between sub-standard personal training fitness education and sports science.I have not studied sports science, but as an ex-athlete having competed nationally or internationally in four sports, I found this book to be quite comprehensive - it seems to be the number one book for general sports science recommended to sports science students.In my working profession, I have found that even some qualified sports scientists (of sport's specific experience) do not properly understand everything that this book or their degree has to offer. So, for the average fitness professional wanting to increase their knowledge and become more comprehensively knowledgeable about human performance, testing and training, this is an excellent start.For an athlete who has competed at elite national and/or international level with a good knowledge on the mechanisms of training for elite performance, this book is a good base reference publication with a scope wider than individual sports knowledge will entail and quite substantial depth to the knowledge provided.

    This book has been recommended several times by highly qualified sports scientists so just had to get it. It has everything you need to know about sport and exercise physiology and I'm really glad to have it in my bookcase.
