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

is the difference between the titles "Exercise
Science" and "Exercise Physiology"?
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.
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.

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

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

is certified by ASEP to practice exercise physiology (via the Exercise

"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

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
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

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
