Summary This book surveys the research evidence into exercise-induced fatigue and discusses how knowledge of fatigue can be applied in sport and exercise contexts. The book examines the different "types" of fatigue and the difficulties of identifying which types are prevalent during different types of exercise. It introduces the fundamental science of fatigue, focusing predominantly on physiological and neuromuscular aspects, and explores key topics in detail, such as energy depletion, lactic acid, dehydration, electrolytes and minerals, and the perception of fatigue.--From publisher's description.
