Book Summary

Sports performance is all about skill, strength, speed, power, and endurance; but what governs these attributes, what limits them, and how can they be improved? Heredity, appropriate training, and diet each contribute to overall performance, but optimizing those attributes most important in a given sport requires an understanding of the processes occurring at the molecular and cellular level. To develop this understanding, the book describes how the biochemicalprocesses underpinning energy provision relate to performance in different sports events, and how, in turn, they can be affected by diet and adptation in reponse to training.
