The ASEPNewsletter is devoted to informative articles and news itmes about exercise physiology. It is a monthly magazine of news, opinions, exercise physiology professionals, and events that shape exercise physiology. While it contains views and opinions of the Editor who oversees the ASEP Internet web pages, visitors can have a voice as well. We welcome interested practitioners, researchers, and academicians to e-mail the Publisher their thoughts and ideas or respond directly online via the ASEP Public Forum.

I found the following Internet links useful in my work and in thinking about exercise physiology.  My hope is that you will enjoy connecting with several of them as well.

What is the difference between the titles "Exercise Science" and "Exercise Physiology"?
Exercise science is not exercise physiology.  Rather, exercise science is a diverse field of study that encompases many areas of inquiry, including sport psychologists, exercise physiologists, biomechanists, physical educators, and kinesiologists.

Note: You may want to read the recent "Call for Action" presentation by Dr. Tommy Boone.

Also, there is an ASEP definition of "Exercise Physiology" and "Exercise Physiologist" published in the ASEP Standards of Professional Practice.

Exercise Physiology means the identification of physiological mechanisms underlying physical activity, the comprehensive delivery of treatment services concerned with the analysis, improvement, and maintenance of health and fitness, rehabilitation of heart disease and other chronic diseases and/or disabilities, and the professional guidance and counsel of athletes and others interested in athletics, sports training, and human adaptability to acute and chronic exercise. 

Exercise Physiologist means a person who has an academic degree in exercise physiology, or who is certified by ASEP to practice exercise physiology (via the Exercise Physiologist Certified exam (EPC), or who has a doctorate degree with an academic degree or emphasis in exercise physiology from an accredited college or university.

Remember this.....

Sports Medicine Groups
 "The following list of professional organizations and resource groups represents the growing diversity in the field of sports medicine. The list also includes government agencies, sports-related groups, and academic centers that are active in tracking sports injuries."  Such statements as this one continues to confuse me, but not because I don't know the differences between sports medicine and exercise physiology.  Rather, why list "exercise physiology" orgnaizations in the first place undert the title of "sports medicine".  Wake up world, hello...there is a difference.  Think goodness that the American Society of Exercise Physiologists is not listed among the 'diversity' in the field of sports medicine. 

The article entitled "Creative Leadership" by Max De Pree is worth your time.

Professionalism in Computing......everybody is beginning to understand the value and the importance of professionalism. check this site out.
Professionalism: a contract between medicine and society 
Sylvia R. Cruess, Richard L. Cruess 
CMAJ 2000;162:668-9 
ExRx Exercise & Muscle Directory [A great site for kinesiology teachers]

The biarticulate latissimus dorsi enters passive insufficiency through the completion of shoulder flexion and abduction when the scapula is more rotated upward, elevated and abducted. The biarticulate latissimus dorsi enters active insufficiency through the completion of shoulder adduction when the scapula is more rotated downward and depressed or through the completion of shoulder extension when the shoulder girdle is more protracted and depressed.

The latissimus dorsi is a stronger shoulder adductor when the shoulder is somewhat externally rotated. It is a stronger shoulder extensor when the shoulder is in anatomical position. Incidentally, the latissimus dorsi does not extend the shoulder beyond anatomical position (shoulder hyperextension). In strict transverse extension, the latissimus dorsi is weak. The posterior deltoid is strongly involved in both shoulder hyperextension and transverse extension. 

Another great Internet source is the following link:
Anatomy of the Human Body
Henry Gray
The edition of Gray’s Anatomy of the Human Body features1,247 vibrant engravings—many in color—from the classic 1918 publication, as well as a subject index with 13,000 entries ranging from the Antrum of Highmore to the Zonule of Zinn.
Teamwork is important.....right?
There were four people named 
Everybody, Somebody, Anybody and Nobody. 

There was an important job to be done and 
Everybody was asked to do it. 

Everybody was sure Somebody would do it, 
Anybody could have done it but Nobody did it. 

Somebody got angry about that, because it was 
Everybody's job. 

Everybody thought Anybody could do it but 
Nobody realized that Everybody wouldn't do it. 

It ended up that Everybody blamed Somebody 
when Nobody did what Anybody could have done.

WOW..this next site will blow you into next year.  It is a must-have site for exercise physiologists.  All exercise physiologists do research, right?
Web Pages that Perform Statistical Calculations!
The web pages are comprised of a powerful, conveniently-accessible, multi-platform statistical software package. There are also links to online statistics books, tutorials, downloadable software, and related resources. All of these resources are freely accessible, once you can get onto the Internet. 
The pages are located on servers all over the world, and are the result of much cleverness and hard work on the part of some very talented individuals. So if you find a page useful it would be nice to send the authors a short e-mail expressing your appreciation for their hard work and generosity in making this software freely accessible to the world. Please let John know of any dead links, computational errors, or other problems you might encounter, and e-mail John to thank him for the hard work and FREE access at:

This site is becoming increasingly important to ASEP as we consider the specifics of our own accreditation.

The Electronic Bookstore for Exercise Physiologists

This is a special Internet site.  Nathan French and Sean Sutter, two St. Scholasica's graduates in exercise physiology, are involved in the direct business of applying exercise physiology to the public.

The Edwin Mellen Press

I thought you might want to know that Dr. Tommy Boone's new book, Professional Development of Exercise Physiology, was just published (October, 2001).  Check it out.
