History of Exercise Physiology free pdf "History of Exercise Physiology" brings together leading authorities in the profession to present this first-of-its-kind resource that is certain to become an essential reference for exercise physiology researchers and practitioners. The contributing authors were selected based on their significant contributions to the field, including many examples in which they were part of seminal research. The result of this vast undertaking is the most comprehensive resource on exercise physiology research ever compiled. Exercise physiology research is ongoing, and its knowledge base is stronger than ever. But today's scholars owe much of their success to their predecessors. The contributors to this book believe it is essential for exercise physiologists to understand the past when approaching the future, and they have compiled this reference to aid in that process. The text includes the following features: - A broad scope of the primary ideas and work done in exercise physiology from antiquity to the present - A review of early contributions to exercise physiology made by Scandinavian scientists, the Harvard Fatigue Laboratory, German laboratories, and the Copenhagen Muscle Research Centre - The incorporation of molecular biology into exercise biology and physiology research that paved the way for exercise physiology - An explanation of the relationship between genomics, genetics, and exercise biology - An integrative view of the autonomic nervous system in exercise

About Charles Tipton

Charles M. Tipton, PhD, is an active emeritus professor of physiology at the University of Arizona. He received a PhD in physiology from the University of Illinois in 1962. He retired after 35 years of directing exercise physiology laboratories that investigated physiological mechanisms associated with the effects of acute and chronic exercise. He is recognized as a leading authority of exercise physiology. Professor Tipton taught physiology and exercise physiology courses to undergraduate, graduate, medical, and professional students at the University of Iowa and the University of Arizona and mentored 21 PhD students at these locations. He has written, coauthored, or edited six books, 33 chapters and proceedings, and approximately 18 articles. In addition, he served as editor in chief of" Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise" and was an associate editor of the "Journal of Applied Physiology" for nearly a decade. He has been both member and chair of select National Institutes of Health (NIH) study sections and of several American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) research committees. A past president of ACSM, Professor Tipton has been appointed to many microgravity advisory committees that include the NASA Review Panel on Space Medicine and Countermeasures, the External Advisory Committee for the National Space Biomedical Research Institute (NSBRI), and the Congress-directed National Research Council Steering Committee on "Recapturing a Future for Space Exploration." For his research and professional endeavors, he received Honor Awards from the ACSM and from the Environmental and Exercise Physiology Section of the American Physiological Society. Fellow Tipton also received the Clark W. Hetherington Award from the National Kinesiology Academy.
