A new and improved print edition of the original e-manual is now available. The improved and re-illustrated book provides coaching and PE professional students with a "laboratory" text that doesn't cost an arm and a leg. And one that they can really use in the field once they graduate. In the manual, there are detailed instructions for administration and evaluation of field-based tests relevant to sport and fitness (designed to logically supply the experiential content of a typical 16-week university semester). No metabolic carts, electromyographs, lactate analyzers, or any other specialized laboratory or clinical equipment is needed. Less than $50 worth of basic supplies available at Wal-Mart can support almost all of the 26 assessment activities. All tests can be done easily with the physical plant normally found in any school, club, or clinic. The manual presents 6 pre-exercise participation/testing screening activities and 20 varied testing activities each assessing either strength, endurance, or mobility. Every individual activity section is prefaced with a physiology-based explanation of what is tested, why it is tested, and how the results can be interpreted and applied. A student laboratory report form is included at the end of each activity or related group of activities.   show more
