About this book
Exercise by itself tears down the body. To rebuild that body so that it expresses greater strength, endurance, and speed, requires sound nutritional practices based on fact rather than fad. Those practices must also recognize that specific needs vary greatly according to age, gender, and intensity of exercise.Sports Nutrition: Energy Metabolism and Exercise offers a cutting-edge investigation of energy metabolism and exercise in relation to sports nutrition. Edited by the team of Ira Wolinsky and Judy Driskell, who continue to build on their reputation as leading experts on sports-nutrition, and written by researchers qualified for the task, this myth-busting work presents-New findings on essential energy-yielding nutrientsNew material on the estimation of energy requirementsVarious chapters examine the active body's need for energy-yielding carbohydrates, lipids, and proteins. The book also considers laboratory methods for determining the energy expenditure of athletes as well as unique assessment methods used to measure activity in the field. In addition, the text considers important physiological aspects of energy metabolism such as body weight regulation, and examines variances necessitated by gender and age.Based on rigorous research, this readable work offers sound advice for all those concerned with the proper nourishment of the active body. Nutritionists, trainers, exercise physiologists, and athletes themselves will find much food for thought on nutrition science, as well as practical guidance in determining the ingredients required to maximize training.

Sequencing of Actions Affects Force Production for Ergometer Rowing

benefit of “taking the catch” with bent elbows may be to allow the rower to more quickly “load” the oar. Acting as a hydrofoil, an oar blade can not generate lift until it is loaded with force. Furthermore, the time it takes to load the blade will be  ...

    This machine may save my life

    I'm a former marathon runner who now has severe arthritic pain in both knees. Even walking long distances hurts. I transitioned to an elliptical machine, which was better, but still leaves me with some pain as there is still some weight bearing. I'd stopped exercising for the last few years, and have watched my weight balloon and my health start to decline. I'm so out of shape that housework and even climbing a flight of stair leaves me out of breath. I'm about 5'10" and a depressing 280 pounds of flab. So I'm basically starting from zero. I've talked to my doctor and orthopedist - both of which suggested swimming as an aerobic activity which won't stress my knees. No pool close to me so not an option. I found this machine by accident and was convinced by all the stellar reviews to try this. So here are my first impressions.Amazon had this delivered in two days via UPS. Came in a strong secure box, well packed with large pieces of Styrofoam.UPS brought this... 5/5 BeagleGuy (New Jersey) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Concept2 Model D has advantages over BodyCraft VR500

    After much research I bought the Concept2 Model D rower. Now I am very glad I did.I was comparing the following machines* Concept2 Model D ($900)* Concept2's Model E ($1100) which is higher off the groundand probably Concept2's strongest competitor on quality (but not price)...* BodyCraft VR500 (listed for $1900, usually on sale for $1500-1600)Also high off the ground like the Model E, and with a long monorail (both Concept2 models D and E also have an available longer monorail, for people with inseams of 38 inches/96.5cm or longer)I tested the Concept2 at my local YMCA before buying it (Concept2's website shows a listing of YMCA's with a Concept2 in your zip code). I also tested the BodyCraft VR500 at my local 2nd Wind Exercise Equipment store.I purchased the Polar H7 heart-rate monitor to work with the Concept2 , and the RowPro Software for the Concept2 after trialing it for 3 weekends... 5/5 Mark (Minneapolis, MN) - See all my reviews This review is from: Concept2 Model D Indoor Rowing Machine with PM5 (Sports) After much research I bought the Concept2 Model D rower.

    Amazing.

    I resisted all the black Friday deals on rowers and bought this one based on the positive reviews. I'm glad I did. Amazon shipped it to me in 2 days. Comes in a large box that weighs about 60 lbs. Very well packaged. Puts together with just 8 bolts. All the tools are included. Took 5 minutes.Despite the positive reviews, this item exceeded my expectations. The machine is extraordinarily solid. No wiggles or give what so ever. Just unbelievable for a 55 lb machine. The rowing motion is great. Clutch uptake is without slack. The slide is smooth. There are complaints about the seat being too hard. I though that the seat was hard plastic, but it's very firm rubber. There is cushion, and I didn't have any problems at all. I bought a gel cushion, but don't find that I need it.I was a bit worried about noise since my machine is in a hard room. But there is not much noise. I'm able to hear the TV from across the room.Overall, this is one... 5/5 Larkspur (Colorado Springs, CO) - See all my reviews, December 4, 2014

    Nice HEAVY DUTY machine...

    I've been trying for the longest time to find a suitable rowing machine that would support my size and weight (6'1" & 300+ lbs) and kept hitting dead-ends with machines that were too "light weight" or just too expensive... That in itself was frustrating as one would think companies would make "heavy duty" machines to cater to larger people working on getting fit... I looked at everything from "bikes" to "rowers" too, all too wimpy in construct...My Wife actually found this one and after reading various reviews on the net and speaking with a Rep from the company I went forward with my purchase and I must say I couldn't be happier for it... The machine is everything I was looking for and will suit my needs for a long time to come... Set up for me was VERY easy, the only glitch was that some bolts had come loose in transit and were lost out of the carry holes on the box (I'm assuming)... It was nothing that prevented me from being able to set up the rower as it uses... 5/5 M. Orona (Whittier, California United States) - See all my reviews, February 2, 2011

    Good Rower, Superior Customer Service

    I have to start out with acknowledging that I purchased this Rower through an online fitness retailer that was a sub partner to the other massive online product company (M*********).At first my experience was horrendous. The product arrived damaged, late and numerous hardware pieces were missing that were required to put the product together correctly. Needless to say I was furious and disappointed. I contacted the online fitness retailer and demanded a full refund and a return of the product. I wrote a review on that site detailing my experience and it `mysteriously' disappeared after a day or so on the website. When asked about it, the company couldn't determine `why' it disappeared as they state `we accept critical reviews'.I then started searching the web for other experiences like mine. I came here to Amazon as well. I read the reviewer who indicated they contacted the actual manufacturer of this RX-950 product. So I did as well.
