Book Description

This exciting new book provides accurate and up-to-date information to both recreational athletes and to those persons who support athlete's nutritional practices. It is organized by activity rather than nutrient providing quicker and easier access to information. In addition to traditional strength and endurance activities, cross-training is analyzed for the first time, both as an exercise and for nutritional recommendations-information unavailable until now, although millions of people cross-train. Also for the first time, this book addresses the individual with cardiovascular disease as a recreational athlete. This chapter is particularly important to all Americans wishing to minimize disease risk from cardiovascular problems-problems that ultimately kill 50% of those who do not modify their lifestyles. A chapter on hydration includes information gleaned from U.S. Space Program research, and the vegetarian chapter puts all of the recommendations into one convenient place.
