"Bioenergetics Primer for Exercise Science" encompasses all the up-to-date research and information regarding human bioenergetics and energy metabolism at a level that is more in depth than cursory discussions found in exercise physiology texts and more practical and accessible than highly research-oriented bioenergetics texts. Itemphasizes the metabolic challenges presented by obesity and diabetes and includes dedicated chapters discussing those metabolic impairments, alterations in metabolism, and the role of exercise in each. Alterations in bioenergetics are also discussed with regard to children, elderly people, and women.
