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.

    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 Baghdaddy - See all my reviews, December 4, 2014

    A little disappointed, but it gets the job done.

    I have to admit that I was somewhat let-down by this rower. I spent a lot of time looking and comparing reviews, because I knew that I couldn't spend the big money for a Concept 2, so I wanted to find the best I could within my price range. I finally settled on the LifeSpan.Pros:Putting this thing together is a piece of cake. It literally took me 15-30 minutes. The main piece, the big gray box that houses all the pulleys and such, is already assembled for you. All I had to do was attach the seat, bars, etc. (The instructions were a little confusing when it came to the seat; I actually thought they hadn't sent the bolts for it and was very upset. Turns out the instructions were just a little poorly done for that particular piece, so if you get the same thing, don't worry!)There are several different tension settings, so you can choose what works best for you.And possibly my favorite thing - the seat and long bar fold up easily so storing... 3/5 Karen (Columbia, SC United States) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    It's quiet, well made, smooth and effective

    5/5 Amazon Customer (Philadelphia) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: LifeSpan RW1000 Indoor Rowing Machine (Sports) I got this rower after seeing that it got more positive reviews from gyms than any other rower in this price range. I only used it once so far but it seems to have very good quality construction (I do metal work/design). It's almost completely silent. It takes 15 min to put together for 1 person (although I love playing w legos/good w directions). I got a good workout from it after 20 minutes of use.Regarding some of the negative reviews; from what they are saying, it seem like they assembled it incorrectly, which seems kind of weird because there aren't that many components. Like the front of the machine can't lift off the ground or wobble unless the lock key is not plugged in and so on... it's really not complicated.

    Invest in a better rower - not recommended.

    2/5 Onamor (AGOURA HILLS, CA, US) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: LifeSpan RW1000 Indoor Rowing Machine (Sports) I had done a lot of research before purchasing this unit. I realised it was a starter rower and read everywhere that if it's your first one then for the price, it's the best one to choose. In my case, I should have taken that money and invested it in a good quality machine.Putting it together took about 15 mins. Very easy. Once you start rowing however the front base of it lifts off the ground. I wrote to lifespan to ask what to do about this and they told me that the I had to make sure the locking pin was in - it was.I then did a search with the words Lifespan rower and lifts off the ground and there were several complains about that. Maybe it's just certain units - who knows.I have time to return it but I'm not going to drag it back downstairs again so I'll make do. Someone has mentioned putting weights on the feet so I will try that. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , June 30, 2015
