In Aging, Physical Activity, and Health, Roy J. Shephard, one of the world's leading authorities on exercise science, reviews and synthesizes the scientific literature on the physiological changes of aging and how regular physical activity affects the aging process. Shephard's critical analysis features the latest theories on how aging and exercise affect such medical conditions as cardiorespiratory diseases, musculoskeletal diseases, metabolic health, mental function, and general well-being. He provides conclusive physiological evidence that exercise is effective for reducing the risk of many diseases, maximizing independence, and improving the quality of life for the elderly. Shephard also discusses the economic and social consequences of an aging society
Aerobic fitness & health by Roy J Shephard( Book )

13 editions published in 1994 in English and Undetermined and held by 685 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Aerobic Fitness and Health ends the need for difficult and time-consuming searches for information on aerobic fitness by presenting a synthesis of current knowledge in a single source. Written by Roy J. Shephard, one of the world's leading authorities on exercise science, this book provides a comprehensive review of the widely scattered scientific literature on aerobic fitness. The book covers a broad range of issues that focus on the interactions between physical activity, aerobic fitness, and health. This concise and very readable reference offers new insights about the physiological determinants of aerobic fitness; examines the status of current fitness levels among children, adults, and the elderly and discusses the pros and cons of the different population studies used to assess these levels; takes an in-depth look at the opposing view - nature vs. nurture - on the source of aerobic fitness; and identifies the many important health dividends of aerobic fitness and regular physical exercise. Each idea advanced in Aerobic Fitness and Health is thoroughly covered and rigorously documented to show a broad base of scientific support. Over 1,300 references make the book an excellent resource for those who want to investigate specific areas of aerobic research

Gender, physical activity, and aging by Roy J Shephard( Book )

14 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and Undetermined and held by 406 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Why do women live longer than men? Does ownership of paired X chromosomes confer more prolonged survival on females, or is the gender difference in life-expectancy a cumulative consequence of differing life experiences for women and men? The areas of gender differences in aging, functional capacity, and the response to physical activity have often been the basis for speculation rather than informed judgment. Gender, Physical Activity, and Aging draws upon the sound knowledge base of leading investigators to provide objective, evidence-based evaluations of particular facets of the aging
Physical fitness assessment : principles, practice, and application by Roy J Shephard( Book )

12 editions published between 1977 and 1978 in English and Undetermined and held by 386 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The articles contained in this book represent a transcript of proceedings of a conference on physical fitness assessment sponsored by the International Committee for Physical Fitness Research and the University of Quebec. The papers cover a wide variety of topics on fitness testing, assessment of athletic performance, improvement of school programs of physical education, and the promotion of community health. Specific topics include a comparison of various international proposals for the standardization of fitness testing; a detailed consideration of body build, inheritance, test repetition, and environment as factors modifying test results; application of test procedures to the evaluation of existing and experimental programs of physical education; use of fitness tests in the assessment of athletes at various levels of competition; and the place of fitness testing in primary, secondary, and tertiary medical care. The material is organized into four sections: (1) variables affecting fitness testing; (2) fitness testing and the prediction of athletic performance; (3) fitness testing in the assessment of school physical education programs; and (4) fitness testing in programs of community health.

The health consequences of "modernization" : evidence from circumpolar peoples by Roy J Shephard( Book )

8 editions published between 1996 and 2008 in English and held by 355 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What are the health consequences of a transition from an active 'hunter-gatherer' lifestyle to that of sedentary modern living? In this book, the impact of 'modernization' is assessed in various populations in the circumpolar regions. The hazards of living in polar regions, and the adaptations shown culturally, behaviourally and physically by the indigenous peoples are examined and the effect of changes in habitual activity, diet, and general lifestyle due to more urban living patterns on the body composition, pulmonary function and susceptibility to disease is discussed. The implications of this switch are important not only for all those concerned about the survival of indigenous communities around the world, but for all of us living increasingly sedentary, urban lives. Anthropologists, physiologists and those interested in population fitness will find this a comprehensive and valuable volume
