Children are not mini-adults. They are growing and maturing at their own individual rates and their physiological responses to exercise are dependent on a large number of variables as they progress through childhood and adolescence into adult life. Understanding has been limited by the fact that measurement techniques and equipment developed for use with adults are often not appropriate or even ethical for use with young people. These issues are addressed in this book which provides an analysis of physiological responses to exercise in relation to age, growth, maturation and sex.Structured in an easy, accessible way for students and lecturersWell referenced, including a further reading list with each chapterNumerous standard textbook elements, including learning objectives, key points and an extensive glossary of terms and commonly used abbreviationsThe editor and contributors are all active researchers in paediatric exercise physiology with experience of teaching modules in this area
