Let’s get technical ... not
We won’t get technical in this
manual. Exercise science is a fascinating
field.We could expand this
manual’s page count tenfold if we
made the preamble a primer on
kinesiology,ATP, the Krebs cycle
and other such physiological
processes. Instead,we will forego
the talk of how the body does
what it does beneath your skin
and focus instead on what you
need to do to let these internal
processes work for you, whether
you understand the science
behind them or not.
