Advanced Fitness Assessment and Exercise Prescription, Eighth Edition, provides  a comprehensive approach to physical fitness appraisal and customized  exercise prescription. The text synthesizes research and practice with  concepts and theories from exercise physiology, kinesiology,  measurement, psychology, and nutrition to clearly convey how assessments  from physical fitness testing inform the design of individualized  exercise programs.

The eighth edition of Advanced Fitness Assessment and Exercise Prescription reflects  the latest exercise testing and prescription guidelines from the  American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) as well as physical activity  recommendations from the U.S. government and American Heart Association.  It also takes into account recent ACSM guidelines for medical exam and  exercise testing requirements to consider before beginning exercise  programs. Additional updates to the eighth edition include the  following:

• New protocols and assessments for each  of the five fitness components, from self-paced treadmill protocols for  cardiorespiratory fitness to the Balance Error Scoring System (BESS)  for assessment of balance

• Updated blood pressure standards for hypertension

• Expanded information on the use of  technology to monitor physical activity, including wearable activity  trackers and mobile apps

• Updated information on the use of workspace design to promote physical activity and exercise

• Extensive updates to the supporting research for the assessment and testing protocols

Advanced Fitness Assessment and Exercise Prescription, Eighth Edition, is  structured around five physical fitness components: cardiorespiratory  endurance, muscular fitness (strength, endurance, and power), body  composition, flexibility, and balance. The text begins with an overview  of physical activity, health, and chronic disease, including a  discussion of preliminary health screening and risk classification. It  then leads into field and laboratory assessment and testing protocols,  followed by prescription guidelines for designing exercise programs to  improve each fitness component. Readers will find the latest information  on maximal and submaximal graded exercise testing in healthy  populations, as well as muscular fitness testing protocols and norms for  children and adults.

Each chapter begins with key questions  to help readers focus on essential information. Sidebars lend practical  insight to the content. Key points, review questions, and key terms  reinforce concepts and summarize chapter content for better retention.  An instructor guide, test package, chapter quizzes, and presentation  package plus image bank provide tools for instructors to use for lecture  preparation, creative content delivery, and class assessment. The  online video clips, newly revised for the eighth edition, further aid  student comprehension of the material and provide instructors an  additional tool for classroom demonstration.

Advanced Fitness Assessment and Exercise Prescription, Eighth Edition, truly  bridges the gap between research and practice. Its unique scope, depth  of coverage, and clearly outlined approach make it an invaluable  resource for students and exercise science professionals who want to  increase their knowledge, skill, and competence in assessing clients'  fitness and designing individualized exercise programs.
