Introduction to exercise physiology
• Oxygen uptake and anaerobic performances
• Pulmonary function
• Blood pressure
• cardiovascular function
• Skeletal muscles
• Exercise effects on the Immune System

• Epigenetics in exercise
• Exercise equipment
• Appendix 1: measurements in exercise physiology
• Appendix 2: Report formats.
This book reviews the assessment of human performance and the role of different exercise modes both in a laboratory and clinical setting. Details of how to successfully perform basic laboratory procedures for exercise training in health and disease, as well as how to apply non-invasive measurements in exercise physiology are provided. Chapters cover how to appropriately use a range of measures in assessing pulmonary function, anaerobic function and oxygen uptake. Techniques for cardiopulmonary rehabilitation and the mechanisms associated with thermoregulation are also described. Interactive exercises enable readers to easily assimilate key concepts and develop a thorough understanding of the topic.Basic Exercise Physiology provides both trainees and professional healthcare staff interested in exercise physiology with a detailed and practically applicable resource on the topic.
• Represents a comprehensive tool for assessing human performance and provides an excellent analysis on the role of the different modes of exercise
• Offers comprehensive coverage of the basic laboratory procedures for exercise training in health and disease
• Provides a comprehensive source of information for instructors and students interested in practical laboratory techniques related to the field of exercise physiology
• Explores testing for oxygen consumption, anaerobic and aerobic fitness, musculoskeletal fitness, pulmonary function, body composition and ECG
• Moran S. Saghiv is an Associate Professor of Clinical Exercise Physiology. From 2014-2018 as MSCEP Program Director and Research Coordinator, Department of Exercise Physiology, School of Health Sciences, University of Mary, Bismarck, ND, USA and from 2009-2014 he was the director, trainers & instructors' certification in sports School, at the Zinman College of Physical Education at the Wingate Collage, Israel.
• Michael S. Sagiv received his PhD in exercise physiology from The University of Wisconsin, Madison WI, USA in 1982. Michael was a football player at the national and international level. Dr Sagiv is a distinguished researcher and an emeritus professor, and was the president of the Wingate College, Wingate, Israel from 1999 to 2009. He established the Wingate College Human and Biogenetics Exercise Physiology Laboratory in 1982 and served as its head for over 17 years. In addition, from 1984 t0 2007 Michael was a lecturer in the department of physiology and pharmacology, faculty of medicine at the Tel Aviv University, Israel. Dr Sagiv has written and co-authored more than 200 publications over the course of his career, including 3 books, 6 book chapters, peer-reviewed articles (129), and lay publication. He served as the editor in chief of the European Review of Aging and Physical Activity for the 6 years. He was president of the European Group for research into Aging and Physical Activity from 1998 to 2005, a member of its board of trustees for 15 years, and a recipient of ACSM young researcher Award. Many of his former students and professionals are now leaders in the field of exercise physiology. From 1984 to 2007 Michael was a lecturer in the department of physiology and pharmacology, faculty of medicine at the University of Tel Aviv, Israel. As an exercise physiologist, Michael works closely with cardiac patients in the rehabilitation center that he established at the Wingate College in 1982 and served as its head for over 25 years.
