Sports Science is a rapidly expanding area, with student numbers on University courses increasing faster than for many other academic subjects. While there are a large number of suitable texts on exercise physiology, there has of yet been no such text for the area of exercise biochemistry. Biochemistry is also an area that students taking these courses usually have the greatest difficulty in understanding. The Biochemistry of exercise and training provides a broadly based introduction to those aspects of biochemistry relevant to exercise science. For students of biochemistry, physiology, and sports science, the book will enable them to develop a solid understanding of the fundamentals of biochemistry. Throughout, the focus is on physiological chemistry, dealing with those biochemical processes that determine the metabolic response to exercise, and the way in which these responses are influenced by training. The authors have taken account of the rapid advances being made in the field of physiological chemistry, and by providing the reader with a broad understanding of the fundamental concepts, they should then be able to integrate these future developments with their existing knowledge of the area.
