Summary:
"Skeletal Muscle, from Molecules to Movement provides a basic text which also covers the important areas of current research. The strength, speed and endurance of skeletal muscle vary greatly between people and change with growth, development, ageing and disease. The quality and quantity of our skeletal muscle affects all aspects of life from the peaks of athletic performance to everyday activities of rising from a  Read more...

    schema:reviewBody ""Skeletal Muscle, from Molecules to Movement provides a basic text which also covers the important areas of current research. The strength, speed and endurance of skeletal muscle vary greatly between people and change with growth, development, ageing and disease. The quality and quantity of our skeletal muscle affects all aspects of life from the peaks of athletic performance to everyday activities of rising from a chair or climbing stairs. Understanding the way muscle functions is central to any study of physical activity in sport, health and disease." "This book will be of value to all who are interested in muscle, either to understand the way it functions during different types of activity or changes and adapts to training, disuse and disease. As such the text will be essential reading for students of physiology, sports science, human movement, physiotherapy and medicine."--Jacket." ;
