Physical Fitness: A Way of Life. Second Edition.
Getchell, Bud
The basics of physical fitness and information for developing a systematic program of exercise and physical activity for the individual are outlined. This book is divided into three major areas. Part one contains chapters dealing with basic physical fitness, understanding the human body and its needs, and methods of appraising individual fitness. In the second section chapters deal with individual conditioning exercises, conditioning for cardiorespiratory endurance, advanced conditioning methods, and weight training. The final part examines additional concerns related to physical fitness. Nutrition, weight control, and exercise are discussed as well as activity and heart disease. The relative merits of various sports and physical fitness are also considered. The appendix includes test scores for women and men, a body composition chart, and physical fitness profile charts. A glossary of terms is included. (JD)
