DESCRIPTION

This book bridges the gap between research and practice for fitness professionals. The seventh edition of Advanced Fitness Assessment and Exercise Prescription, provides a comprehensive approach to physical fitness appraisal and exercise prescription. The text bridges the gap between research and practice and synthesizes concepts and theories from exercise physiology, kinesiology, measurement, psychology and nutrition to provide a clearly defined approach to physical fitness testing and the design of individualised exercise programmes. The accompanying online videos enhance the learning experience and teach the techniques necessary for conducting fitness testing and programme design. More than 40 clips featuring common exercise assessments will help users learn essentials of fitness testing, such as calibration of blood pressure cuffs, functional movement assessment and push-up and pull-up testing.
