Children are not mini-adults. They are growing and maturing at their own individual rates and their physiological responses to exercise are dependent on a large number of variables as they progress through childhood and adolescence into adult life. Understanding has been limited by the fact that measurement techniques and equipment developed for use with adults are often not appropriate or even ethical for use with young people. These issues are addressed in this book which provides an analysis of physiological responses to exercise in relation to age, growth, maturation and sex. Structured in an easy, accessible way for students and lecturers Well referenced, including a further reading list with each chapter Numerous standard textbook elements, including learning objectives, key points and an extensive glossary of terms and commonly used abbreviations The editor and contributors are all active researchers in paediatric exercise physiology with experience of teaching modules in this area

The tender period between childhood and adolescence is full of changes for young children. They are approaching the onset of sexual maturation, and because they are beginning their school careers, the possibilities for voluntary play and movement rapidly decrease while mental stress rapidly increases. It is very important that young children have a basic knowledge about correct running, jumping, throwing, and swimming as well as knowledge of how to play different sports and games. However, there are no criteria for acceptable levels of motor skills or how to correctly measure those motor skills. Focusing on a traditionally less studied age group, Growth, Physical Activity, and Motor Development in Prepubertal Children presents concentrated and selected information about the relationships among health and anthropometry, physical activity, motor ability, and motor development in children between the ages of eight and twelve. Extensively referenced, this book features the results of comprehensive studies of development during the prepubertal years as they relate to environmental conditions. It devotes special attention to body composition and health-related physical fitness. The book discusses recommended testing methods, including their validity, objectivity, and reliability. The health of children depends on their levels of physical activity, their motor abilities, and their motor skills. With the tools and guidelines provided in Growth, Physical Activity, and Motor Development in Prepubertal Children, you will be able to easily evaluate physical activity, then confidently guide children toward optimum growth and development.
