Editors: Michael J. Duncan (University of Derby, Derby, UK), Mark Lyons (Newman University College, UK)
Book Description:
The topic of human performance has grown dramatically in recent years and draws on a range of academic disciplines including Physiology, Biomechanics, Psychology and Nutrition. This book presents recent research in the field that provides a bridge between scientific knowledge and the practitioner in human performance. This book covers topics such as the efficacy of exercise training to enhance human performance, the cognitive impact of performance tasks, nutritional interventions that influence performance, predicting human performance from anthropometric variables and examining the impact of specific physiological and environmental factors that influence the performance of daily tasks.
