About

Overview

RESISTANCE TRAINING FOR SPECIAL POPULATIONS provides strategies designed to increase muscle strength, power and endurance for individuals with chronic disease. Individual chapters are developed by recognized experts for each chronic condition, and detail the muscular fitness training required to enhance exercise outcomes and quality of life. RESISTANCE TRAINING FOR SPECIAL POPULATIONS focuses on strategies related to the frail elderly, osteoporosis, congestive heart failure, obese adults and children, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, pulmonary disease, asthma, cancer, arthritis, low back pain, hypertension and stroke. RESISTANCE TRAINING FOR SPECIAL POPULATIONS follows a consistent conceptual framework and outlines the physiological rationale for strength testing and training. Each chapter presents an overview of the etiology of the particular chronic disease and impact on public health and society, presents resources and evidence-based research, and provides sample exercise programs in a practical, "how to" format. Independence is a critical factor contributing to quality of life for individuals with chronic disease.
