The subject of thermodynamics is rarely found in Nutrition and Exercise Physiology textbooks. Yet this material is fundamental to any serious inquisition concerning energy exchange.
This book provides a fresh approach to the study of energy expenditure by introducing the latest concepts in open system thermodynamics and cellular to whole-body energy exchange. The text traces biological energy exchange, from the molecules in the food we eat to the energy demands of rest, physical exertion and its recovery.
The carefully researched text advances traditional exercise physiology concepts by incorporating contemporary thermodynamic and cellular physiology principles into the context of a 'working' metabolism.
This book is written for upper level undergraduate and graduate students, but will also appeal to exercise physiologists, registered dieticians and nutritionists, and applies to cardiac rehabilitation, exercise science and health fitness programs.
This book provides Seniors and people who are aging into their mature years, with some very effective, scientifically based exercise techniques and combines them into a workout routine, which can be performed at home, or in an assisted living facility. This exercise book for aging men and women has a well-rounded workout, which will increase strength throughout all of your major muscle groups...FAST. Having spent a quarter-century studying and applying strength techniques to Athletes, recreational enthusiasts and military personnel, the techniques in this routine are the fastest methods, known to man, to regain and develop strength in certain muscle groups. Members of the U. S. Navy SEALS and other elite members of the Armed Forces currently use modified versions of some of these exercises, when deployed, due to their limited access to exercise equipment. I designed this routine specifically for Seniors, not only for its effectiveness but also for the same reason of possible, limited access to exercise equipment. Seniors and even men & women over 50 are "aging-in-place" now more than ever before and with the routine in this book, they can now strengthen all of the major muscle groups in the body, get daily exercise and noticeable improvements from this routine without having to purchase any exercise or fitness equipment. This is one the most effective exercise books for the aging because it condenses certain revolutionary training principles into a book, for seniors and aging individuals and allows them to use these exercise methods in the privacy of their own home. Exercise is even more important for aging seniors due to the loss of muscle mass, decreasing bone density and other physical limitations among many of them. "Aging gracefully" includes a daily plan of some type of exercise activity, eating healthy meals and following a low-stress lifestyle. It is said that people who follow these principles live a more-fulfilled life and aging seniors are no exception to this rule. Exercise has been proven to lower stress, increase muscle tissue, fight depression, obesity and a host of other health problems. Regular exercise is crucial to improve the quality of life among today's aging seniors. Senior men and women now have the knowledge and "tools" to perform a full-body workout at home, which has zero impact on their joints and minimizes the risk of injury, by emphasizing slow and controlled exercise movements.
Follow the Skinny Rules Plan to lose weight and stay and healthy! The rules are not based on a fad diet, but rather the end of dieting. The rules focus on building healthy lifestyle habits and turning your body into a Fat Burning Machine! The Skinny Rules Food and Exercise Journal is a comprehensive journal designed to help you achieve your weight loss goals. This journal was made to complement the bestselling book "The Skinny Rules," by Bob Harper. One of the cardinal rules in the book refers to the importance of eating 30 to 50 grams of fiber each day. This is why we included a special section for fiber when most other food journals only include a section for protein, fat and carbs. We added the fiber section to this journal because of the importance of this rule. Eating enough fiber ensures that you'll have a smaller waistline and feel fuller longer, so it's important to track your fiber intake along with other nutritional information. The other sections conform to other skinny rules such as eating a certain amount of protein per day, eating the right carbs before lunch, consuming healthy fats and more!! The interior of the journal features sections for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks. There is also a section for the time because it's important to eat the right foods and certain times throughout the day, according to Bob Harper. Extra space is also provided to track water intake and write down your exercise goals. This book is jumbo sized, to provide more room for writing, planning and goal setting. In addition, we provided margin space for extra notes, stickers or words of encouragement that you might want to add to help you stay on track! (Bonus: Graphing paper is located at the end of the journal! Feel free to use this take extra notes, paste pictures, more goals and create a mini dream / goal board within the book!) 8 x 11 size
