Guidelines for Exercise Testing & Prescription

Edited by the American College of Sports Medicine, 6th edition

Prepared by the Preventive and Rehabilitative Programs Committee. 366pp (5 3/8 x 8 1/2) 35 illus. paperback, 2000

This book provides a succinct summary of recommended procedures in healthy persons and in diseased patients. Procedures for health screening of candidates for exercise programs, physical fitness testing of healthy persons, clinical exercise testing, exercise prescription in healthy and diseased persons, and procedures for affecting health behavior changes are presented. It also includes the behavioral objectives that are to be met by candidates for the ACSM's various professional certificates in preventive and rehabilitative exercise programming.

New chapters on clinical exercise physiology and physical fitness testing, and revised chapters on clinical exercise testing, exercise prescription in special populations and health screening reflect the most current knowledge in the sciences and recent clinical innovations.

No other book deals so concisely, yet comprehensively with the principles of exercise-related services and programs.
