Summary
    Providing students with practical, hands-on knowledge, Exercise Prescription Case Studies for Healthy Populations introduces readers to situations they are likely to encounter when writing exercise prescriptions in actual settings, challenging them to apply the scientific knowledge they’ve gained in other courses to real-world scenarios and cases.

    The book focuses on apparently healthy individuals and includes cases and information for prescribing exercise for children, adolescents, older adults, and pregnant women. Early chapters outline individual components of the exercise prescription process and case studies for these particular components. Students learn about screening, evaluation, physical fitness testing, clinical exercise testing and interpretation, metabolic equations, and principles for cardiorespiratory endurance, resistance exercise, flexibility exercise, and special considerations. The final chapter presents comprehensive case studies that outline the full process from initial screenings to the writing of a targeted exercise prescription.

    Exercise Prescription Case Studies for Healthy Populations features content that prepares students for a meaningful career after graduation and also helps them study for the ACSM Exercise Physiologist Certified (EP-C) certification. It is ideal for courses in exercise science and physiology.
