You will find no better preparation source for the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) certification than the new, second edition of Exercise Prescription: A Case Study Approach to the ACSM Guidelines. Authors David Swain and Brian Leutholtz present a series of case studies to help you translate the ACSM guidelines for exercise prescription into practical knowledge.
This second edition of Exercise Prescription utilizes the most up-to-date information published in the seventh edition of the ACSM’s Guidelines to provide an excellent study resource not only for those preparing for ACSM certification, but for any certification that follows the guidelines set by the ACSM. And unlike the numerous texts that concentrate on the theory and fundamentals of exercise prescription guidelines, this text presents real-life case studies that clearly show readers how the information is applied. You will find new criteria for screening, risk factor thresholds, and fitness norms, as well as revised recommendations for exercise intensity. The text also contains expanded readings on special populations such as pregnant women, children, and various types of cardiac patients.
