"Endurance in Sport is a comprehensive and authoritative work on all aspects of a major component of sports science, as well as embracing medical and sport-specific issues of particular relevance to all interested in endurance performance." "The scientific basis and mechanisms of endurance--physiological, psychological, genetic, and environmental--are considered in depth. Measurement of endurance is extensively reviewed as is preparation and training for physical activities requiring endurance." "The information presented will be of interest to a wide range of disciplines including sports scientists, sports medicine doctors, medical doctors in family practice, physical therapists, athletic trainers and coaches, and graduate students in the sports sciences and health-related professions."--Jacket

Aerobic Fitness and Health ends the need for difficult and time-consuming searches for information on aerobic fitness by presenting a synthesis of current knowledge in a single source. Written by Roy J. Shephard, one of the world's leading authorities on exercise science, this book provides a comprehensive review of the widely scattered scientific literature on aerobic fitness. The book covers a broad range of issues that focus on the interactions between physical activity, aerobic fitness, and health. This concise and very readable reference offers new insights about the physiological determinants of aerobic fitness; examines the status of current fitness levels among children, adults, and the elderly and discusses the pros and cons of the different population studies used to assess these levels; takes an in-depth look at the opposing view - nature vs. nurture - on the source of aerobic fitness; and identifies the many important health dividends of aerobic fitness and regular physical exercise. Each idea advanced in Aerobic Fitness and Health is thoroughly covered and rigorously documented to show a broad base of scientific support. Over 1,300 references make the book an excellent resource for those who want to investigate specific areas of aerobic research
Aging, physical activity, and health by Roy J Shephard ( Book )
8 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 685 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In Aging, Physical Activity, and Health, Roy J. Shephard, one of the world's leading authorities on exercise science, reviews and synthesizes the scientific literature on the physiological changes of aging and how regular physical activity affects the aging process. Shephard's critical analysis features the latest theories on how aging and exercise affect such medical conditions as cardiorespiratory diseases, musculoskeletal diseases, metabolic health, mental function, and general well-being. He provides conclusive physiological evidence that exercise is effective for reducing the risk of many diseases, maximizing independence, and improving the quality of life for the elderly. Shephard also discusses the economic and social consequences of an aging society

Gender, physical activity, and aging by Roy J Shephard ( Book )
15 editions published between 2001 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 475 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Why do women live longer than men? Does ownership of paired X chromosomes confer more prolonged survival on females, or is the gender difference in life-expectancy a cumulative consequence of differing life experiences for women and men? The areas of gender differences in aging, functional capacity, and the response to physical activity have often been the basis for speculation rather than informed judgment. Gender, Physical Activity, and Aging draws upon the sound knowledge base of leading investigators to provide objective, evidence-based evaluations of particular facets of the aging process. Focusing on gender differences, it examines the rate of aging, loss of functional capacity, disability, and the quality of life among the elderly and presents evidence of potential modification through physical activity and lifestyle

The health consequences of "modernization" : evidence from circumpolar peoples by Roy J Shephard ( Book )
8 editions published between 1996 and 2008 in English and held by 362 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
What are the health consequences of a transition from an active 'hunter-gatherer' lifestyle to that of sedentary modern living? In this book, the impact of 'modernization' is assessed in various populations in the circumpolar regions. The hazards of living in polar regions, and the adaptations shown culturally, behaviourally and physically by the indigenous peoples are examined and the effect of changes in habitual activity, diet, and general lifestyle due to more urban living patterns on the body composition, pulmonary function and susceptibility to disease is discussed. The implications of this switch are important not only for all those concerned about the survival of indigenous communities around the world, but for all of us living increasingly sedentary, urban lives. Anthropologists, physiologists and those interested in population fitness will find this a comprehensive and valuable volume
