This second edition of Genetics and Sports expands on topics previously discussed in an attempt to create an integrated and holistic understanding of the field of sports genomics. It is an update on technologies and on the role of genetics in training, performance, injury, and other exercise-related phenotypes. Ethical concerns and the importance of counselling before and after genetic testing are also addressed. It is increasingly important to understand the field of genetics and sports because of the potential to use and misuse information. All exercise scientists, sport and exercise clinicians, athletes, and coaches need to be adequately informed to ensure that genetic information is accurately and properly used. Genetics and Sports is, therefore, highly recommended to all of these groups.
Genetics and Sports:Medicine and Sport Science. 2nd, revised and extended edition D.J. Caine, A.P. Hills, T. Noakes
Family isn´t always defined by blood. Sometimes family is born of love, loyalty, and choice. Sometimes the bond that comes from someone having your back through the shittiest of times is stronger than anything you get from genetics, and sometimes you find that piece of your soul you didn´t even know was missing. I´m a lucky guy like that. I found a love that will never fade. I found a group of people who aren´t just my friends; they´ve become my family. There´s only one place to go from here. I´m gonna bind myself to Rimmel in every possible way. I´m gonna bring our family even closer together. The past has taught me it won´t be easy, but that´s okay. Family doesn´t quit each other. Love like ours never dies. Happily ever after isn´t just for storybooks. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Chandra Skyye, Eric Michael Summerer.

Pilot-model for oxidative post-competition recovery in swimmers:New insights from Genetics and Epigenetics on Sports Performance Luís Crisóstomo
´´´Molecular Exercise Physiology: An Introduction´ is the first student-friendly textbook to be published on this key topic in contemporary sport and exercise science. It introduces sport and exercise genetics and the molecular mechanisms by which exercise causes adaptation and various related topics. The text is always linked to real life sport and exercise science situations such as ´what makes people good at distance running?´, ´what DNA sequence variations code for a high muscle mass?´ or ´by what mechanisms does exercise improve type2 diabetes?´´´--
An intriguing blend of science and sports that explores how some of the world´s greatest athletes are utilizing the last frontier of performance-enhancing technology - the mental mapping and engineering of their own brains - for peak performance and what it means for the future of athleticism, sports, and the rest of us. Moneyball showed how statistics were revolutionizing baseball. The Sports Gene revealed the role genetics play in sports. Now, Head in the Game examines the next evolution: how mental engineering - the manipulation of the cognitive processes of the brain - can make gifted athletes even better. For years technology - from EEG (electroencephalogram) to fMRI (functional magnetic resonance imaging) to video games, tablets, and personal data collection devices - have been used with soldiers to understand their physical and mental functioning. Touching on brain functionality vital to sports - both the ´´hard´´ (coordination, stimuli processing, functional memory, decision making, load processing) and the ´´soft´´ (emotion regulation, visualization, psychology, mindfulness) - this tech is now being adopted by scores of championship franchises and top athletes - including scrappy underdogs forced to innovate and elite players looking for an advantage. Star NFL quarterbacks Russell Wilson and Tom Brady, the NBA´s Kyle Korver, and Olympic volleyball champion Kerri Walsh are using mental engineering to up their game. It´s not luck that has transformed the San Antonio Spurs into a formidable force - it´s science, Sneed demonstrates. As mental engineering becomes widespread - taking athletes who are already freaks of nature and making them better - the impact on the multibillion-dollar sports industry will be dramatic on players, managers, trainers, owners, and even fans. Interviewing athletes and coaches, visiting training camps and sports science firms, Brandon Sneed offers a firsthand, on-the-ground look at th... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Nicholas Tecosky.

Why have all the sprinters who have run the 100 meters in under 10 seconds been black? What´s one thing Mozart, Venus Williams, and Michelangelo have in common? Is it good to praise a child´s intelligence? Why are baseball players so superstitious? Few things in life are more satisfying than beating a rival. We love to win and hate to lose, whether it´s on the playing field or at the ballot box, in the office or in the classroom. In this bold new look at human behavior, award-winning journalist and Olympian Matthew Syed explores the truth about our competitive nature: why we win, why we don´t, and how we really play the game of life. Bounce reveals how competition - the most vivid, primal, and dramatic of human pursuits - provides vital insight into many of the most controversial issues of our time, from biology and economics, to psychology and culture, to genetics and race, to sports and politics. Backed by cutting-edge scientific research and case studies, Syed shatters long-held myths about meritocracy, talent, performance, and the mind. He explains why some people thrive under pressure and others choke, and weighs the value of innate ability against that of practice, hard work, and will. From sex to math, from the motivation of children to the culture of big business, Bounce shows how competition provides a master key with which to unlock the mysteries of the world.p> PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio. 1.

It´s a dog eat dog world. Don´t be on the menu. What are the differences between a winning and losing performance? Why are we able to rise to the challenge one day, but wilt from it the next? Can we in fact become better competitors? In Top Dog, Po Bronson and Ashley Merryman use cutting-edge science to tease out the hidden factors at the core of every great triumph - and every tragic failure. By enabling you to identify your own competitive style, Top Dog will help you tip the odds of success in your favor. Integrating wisdom from politics, finance, genetics, neuroscience, psychology, military training, sports, economics, education and more, Top Dog offers counterintuitive, game-changing insights into the nature of competition, such as: Why the home-field advantage in sports is just as relevant in diplomacy and deal-making That women are better at judging risk, while men are better at ignoring it - and how this plays out on K Street and Wall Street Why younger siblings are more competitive than first-borns, and how early-childhood influences shape competitive styles forever That the shape of entrepreneurs´ hands can be just as revealing as their business plans How a single biochemical can predict a winner before an event has even begun Why discord can be better than harmony, and why stars on a team do deserve special treatment As President Dwight Eisenhower said, ´´What counts is not necessarily the size of the dog in the fight - it´s the size of the fight in the dog.´´ In Top Dog, Po Bronson and Ashley Merryman reveal the size of the fight in all of us. 1.
