Resistance Training for Health and Rehabilitation is the first text to address the expanding role of resistance training for health, disease prevention, and rehabilitation. Resistance Training for Health and Rehabilitation presents a clear and sound rationale for including resistance training as a health benefit. The evidence points to positive changes in cardiovascular function, metabolism, coronary risk factors, and psychosocial well-being for people with and without disease.

This unique resource will help professionals quickly identify the pros and cons of resistance training as it relates to a wide range of medical conditions. Just as important, it provides guidelines that will ensure the development of safe resistance activities for patients with health impairments, including physical disabilities.

All this valuable information is presented in four easy-to-follow parts. Part I introduces the concept of resistance training. Part II addresses how resistance training applies to special populations and conditions. Part III deals with resistance training and chronic visceral diseases, and Part IV covers chronic physical disabilities.

Resistance Training for Health and Rehabilitation will appeal to all those involved in promoting and maintaining health through resistance training. Researchers can draw on specific studies included in the text as they develop their own ideas of resistance training prescription in different fields of study. And practitioners will find no better source of exercise prescriptions for both their healthy and rehabilitating patients.
