Physical Fitness: The Pathway to Healthful Living. Third Edition.
Hockey, Robert V.
This text is designed for university-level foundations of physical education courses that incorporate student participation in alternate lecture and laboratory sessions. The material is presented so that each individual might evaluate his present level of physical fitness, might carefully consider all the information available, and then make an educated decision with regard to the importance of physical activity in his life. Each chapter begins with a questionnaire designed to determine students' attitudes and present level of knowledge. Discussion, suggestions for laboratory activities, further references, and summary activities follow. Photographs and charts supplement the text throughout. Chapter headings include: the cardiovascular system; cardiovascular disease and risk factors; physical fitness; cardiovascular endurance; strength; muscular endurance; flexibility; exercise; diet and weight control; exercise and health; skill and motor ability; existing exercise programs; relative value of various activities in the development of physical fitness; and developing an exercise program.
