Abstract: Advanced Fitness Assessment and Exercise Prescription, Ninth Edition With HKPropel Online Video, is the definitive resource for conducting physical fitness testing and customizing exercise programs. Now in its ninth edition, this comprehensive guide is fully updated with the latest research, the newest exercise testing and prescription guidelines, and the most up-to-date programming content. The text reflects the most recent exercise testing and prescription guidelines from the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM), along with physical activity recommendations from the U.S. government and American Heart Association. It highlights ACSM guidelines for physical activity and exercise testing requirements to consider before beginning exercise programs. Structured around the five physical fitness components.."cardiorespiratory capacity, muscular fitness, body composition, flexibility, and balance.."the text begins with an overview of physical activity, health, and chronic disease, including discussion of preliminary health screenings and risk classification. Readers will gain insight into field and laboratory assessments and testing protocols for each component, along with detailed information on properly administering the most common assessments. The 73 related video clips, delivered online through HKPropel, provide detailed instruction and demonstration for performing many of the assessments and exercises; these include functional movement assessment, pull-up and push-up testing, flywheel training, and more. Finally, readers will turn research into practice by understanding how to design personalized exercise prescription, customized for each client based on individual assessment outcomes. Information on appropriate training methods and programming considerations are presented for each component of fitness.
