Description

<i>Exercise, Sport, and Bioanalytical Chemistry: Principles and Practice</i> focuses on the basic and applied aspects of energy metabolism in humans. It concisely conveys the key traditional concepts and recent findings and provides insight into developing trends in analytical chemistry that will inform future research and application. Concise and scientific, yet intelligible to the non-scientist, the book consists of two parts, beginning with Part I: Basics and Background, which provides the biochemistry necessary to understand the rest of the book and describes analytical processes and results as an aid to grasping the science. Part II: Applications: Knowledge into Practice then explores measurement techniques for metabolism, energy expenditure of various activities, techniques that enhance expenditure, metabolic adaptation, and foods and drugs that enhance expenditure. The benefits of exercise are discussed, future trends are explored, and the many concrete examples are both useful and entertaining. This volume allows readers to come away with a grasp of the scientific concepts, how they are manifested in research techniques, and how the results of research can be applied in the real world of public health and personal development.<br><br><ul><li>Provides readers with the fundamental biochemistry and some elements of the physiology behind physical activity/exercise and describes the analytical techniques used to elucidate the science</li><li>Written in clear, concise, compelling prose that is neither simplistic to scientists nor too sophisticated for a large, diverse global audience</li><li>A One-Page Close-Up in each chapter illustrates key topics to catch, engage, entertain, and create a novel synthesis of thought</li></ul>
