Exercise Endocrinology is the only comprehensive textbook dealing with the endocrine physiology of exercise. The book serves both as a valuable introduction to endocrinology and as an integrative overview of exercise endocrinology. The text will help you understand the basics of endocrinology while giving you the most current information on endocrine physiology research.

Written by a highly acclaimed exercise scientist and endocrinology researcher, Exercise Endocrinology is well organized and includes references, illustrations, and tables that will help you do the following:

  • Compare hormone sources and effects

  • Categorize hormones, receptors, organ sources, and actions

  • Understand hormone functions (with specific consideration for fluid regulation, immunology, fuel use, stress responses, biological rhythms, and physical performance)

  • Recognize hormone agonists and antagonists

  • Be aware of the influence of exercise and hormones on human health
The text devotes substantial attention to the chemical mediation of hypertension, diabetes, hyperlipidemia, and obesity. It also combines the study of growth and energy regulation to clarify how chemical mediators cause partitioning of energy down these separate pathways.

The practical value of Exercise Endocrinology will appeal to students and exercise scientists, and the book will also be a valuable reference for health professionals who use exercise in disease prevention and rehabilitation.
