Sport and Exercise Physiology Testing Guidelines: Volume II - Exercise and Clinical Testing. The British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences Guide

By 

Abstract

Sport and exercise physiologists are called upon to carry out physiological assessments that have proven validity and reliability, both in sport-specific and health-related contexts. A wide variety of test protocols have been developed and refined. This book is a comprehensive guide to these protocols and to the key issues relating to physiological testing. \ud \ud Volume I will cover sport-specific testing, and Volume II clinical and exercise testing.\ud \ud With contributions from many leading specialist physiologists, and covering a wide range of mainstream sports, special populations, and ethical, practical and methodological issues, these volumes represent an essential resource for sport-specific and clinical exercise testing in both research and applied settings\ud \ud Foreword "Sue Campbell "Foreword "Clyde Williams "Introduction "Edward Winter, Paul Bromley, Richard Davison, Andrew Jones and Tom Mercer "General Principles Rationale "Edward Winter, Paul Bromley, Richard Davison, Andrew Jones and Tom Mercer "1.
