RESISTANCE TRAINING FOR SPECIAL POPULATIONS provides strategies designed to increase muscle strength, power and endurance for individuals with chronic disease. Individual chapters are developed by recognized experts for each chronic condition and detail the muscular fitness training required to enhance exercise outcomes and quality of life. RESISTANCE TRAINING FOR SPECIAL POPULATIONS consistently describes the physiological rationale for strength testing and training. Each chapter presents an overview of the etiology of the particular chronic disease and impact on public health and society, outlines resources and evidence-based research, and provides sample exercise programs presented in a practical, "how to" format.
