How do our muscles produce energy for exercise and what are the
underlying biochemical principles involved? These are questions
that students need to be able to answer when studying for a number
of sport related degrees. This can prove to be a difficult task for
those with a relatively limited scientific background.
Biochemistry for Sport and Exercise Metabolism addresses
this problem by placing the primary emphasis on sport, and
describing the relevant biochemistry within this context.

The book opens with some basic information on the subject,
including an overview of energy metabolism, some key aspects of
skeletal muscle structure and function, and some simple biochemical
concepts. It continues by looking at the three macromolecules which
provide energy and structure to skeletal muscle - carbohydrates,
lipids, and protein. The last section moves beyond biochemistry to
examine key aspects of metabolism - the regulation of energy
production and storage. Beginning with a chapter on basic
principles of regulation of metabolism it continues by exploring
how metabolism is influenced during high-intensity, prolonged, and
intermittent exercise by intensity, duration, and nutrition.


Key Features:



  • A clearly written, well presented introduction to the
    biochemistry of muscle metabolism.

  • Focuses on sport to describe the relevant biochemistry within
    this context.

  • In full colour throughout, it includes numerous illustrations,
    together with learning objectives and key points to reinforce
    learning.


Biochemistry for Sport and Exercise Metabolism will prove
invaluable to students across a range of sport-related courses, who
need to get to grips with how exercise mode, intensity, duration,
training status and nutritional status can all affect the
regulation of energy producing pathways and, more important, apply
this understanding to develop training and nutrition programmes to
maximise athletic performance.
