9780128010303: Mitochondrial Fitness: The Science of Athletic Energy

Mitochondrial Fitness: The Science of Athletic Energy will take you inside the human cell, providing a deeper knowledge, revealing the biological basis of athletic genetic gift, the science of sports nutrition and dietary requirements, the various fuels cells consumed and stored protein synthetic function, and the processes of recovery and rebuilding. Focusing on cellular and subcellular levels of athletic energy, this reference text will cover everything from sports nutrition and hydration at the cellular level to a core understanding of mitochondria. In addition to helping physiologists, biologists, and physicians understand the true science behind fitness, this book will assist elite athletes in achieving natural, optimal performance as well as recreational athletes to improve overall fitness, health, and vitality. * Reveals the biological basis of althletic genetic gift, the science of sport nutrition and dietary requirements, the fuel cells consume and store, protein synthetic function, and the processes of recovery and building.* Explains the relationship between diseases and toxins that impair mitochondria, one of the contributors to the epidemics of metabolic syndrome, obesity, type 2 diabetes, many degenerative diseases, as well as the latest theory of aging.* Helps physiologists, biologists, and physicians understand the true science behind fitness and assists athletes in achieving natural, optimal performance as well as recreational athletes to improve overall fitness, health, and vitality.

About the Author:

Greg LeMond is a legendary and pioneering bicyclist, three-time winner of the Tour de France (1986, 1989, and 1990), three-time World Cycling Champion (1979 junior, 1983, and 1989), author of "Greg LeMond's Complete Book of Bicycling " (1988, with Kent Gordis), founder of the LeMond Fitness company, bicycle technology innovator, and fitness expert. Greg LeMond runs his company at GregLeMond.com, is a leader in the latest training equipment and power (watts) training devices, and has recently reintroduced his brand of LeMond bicycles. He contributes in many cycling periodicals, including Cycling News. He recently joined Eurosport as their Global Cycling Ambassador and as a TV sports commentator. Greg is uniquely qualified to describe the importance of mitochondria during the height of his racing career and also when mitochondrial myopathy resulted in his premature retirement from racing. He will explain why modern athletes need to know the science of fitness. Dr. Mark Hom, M.D. is a Johns Hopkins University trained biologist (B.A. in Biology with Honors), an award winning artist (Kenan Art Award, first place), an award winning medical illustrator while attending medical school at the University of North Carolina (a UNC Dean's grant recipient and also a UNC Holderness Fellowship recipient), a practicing interventional radiologist (one of the most in demand medical specialties), an educator of young doctors (an Assistant Professor of Radiology), and an avid fitness cyclist (riding 4,000 miles per year). Dr. Hom will explain how the human body, various organ systems, and individual cells function in the biologic process of exercise. Dr. Hom will show that mitochondria are at the center of cell energy production, metabolism, and athletic performance, as well as an underlying cause of degeneration, aging, and many diseases. He is currently a member of the Department of Radiology at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, VA. Dr. Glenn A. Gaesser is a renown researcher in the field of exercise physiology, author of numerous articles and books in physiology, a reviewer for major physiology journals, and an expert in sports nutrition and health/fitness improvement. Dr. Gaesser will make certain that our concepts and recommendations are state-of-the-art and supported by the latest scientific literature. When controversial topics are covered, all points of view will be rationally explained. Our theories will be based on the evidence and not just speculation or mere opinion.
