Product Description

About the Author

Jie Kang, PhD, is a professor in the department of health and exercise science at the College of New Jersey in Ewing, where he directs graduate and undergraduate student research and teaches a variety of exercise science courses. Kang's interest in exercise metabolism originated with his doctoral work at the University of Pittsburgh, where he conducted clinical research dealing with exercise and diabetes. He received his PhD in exercise physiology in 1994.

Kang has published over 50 peer-reviewed articles and has been an invited speaker in various workshops and symposiums discussing topics related to bioenergetics and exercise metabolism, specifically the alterations in energy metabolism, substrate utilization, cardiorespiratory activity, and perceived exertion in response to acute and chronic exercise.

For the past several years, Kang has served as director of the ACSM Health/Fitness Instructor workshop and certification at the College of New Jersey. He is also an ACSM-certified exercise specialist. His work as both a clinician in several clinical, health, and fitness facilities and as a researcher provide opportunities for Kang to transfer bioenergetics theory to practical application.

Kang is also a member and fellow of the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) and a past member of the executive committee for the Mid-Atlantic Regional Chapter of the ACSM.

During his free time, Kang enjoys reading, photography, and traveling in addition to physical pursuits of jogging, swimming, and tennis. He and his wife, Julie Ye, live in Medford, New Jersey.

I needed this for an exercise metabolism class, and all the material was laid out incredibly well. I was even able to use this for other classes including bioenergetics and muscle regeneration. Must read if you are in the field of body energy systems.

HASH(0xa074ab94) out of 5 stars The book that fits everyone!!! Dec 23 2008
By Josephine Kelly - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book is quite thorough and has almost all the info I need as I am trying to understand how energy is consumed and flows in our body. I am a registered dietitian, and I found this book to be a pretty good resource.

HASH(0xa074abe8) out of 5 stars Great book with plenty of information and easier than expected to read May 28 2014

I'm a personal trainer and this subject is very important to know but may trainers either don't wan't learn about this subject or are confident that they already know it. The first couple chapters were bit tough to get through just because of the unfamiliar biology terms being used straight away. (but that would obviously not apply to everyone and that is how you learn) I powered through and the terms and principles made more and more sense as I got deeper in. I don't know how the author managed to cover so much material and in such a concise and clear way in so few pages. I read the book in about day, and I revisit sections almost daily just to be certain I understood it and didn't draw my own conclusions from misunderstandings or lack of focus. I definitely learned a lot from this book, but I have more questions now then when I started; just because there is so much to learn in this area and one book can't possibly cover everything.

I like this volume! I learned something about biological energy system, but I had to use several texts. This book seems to have everything in one place.
