This clinically and practice oriented, multidisciplinary book is intended to fill the gap between evidence-based knowledge on the benefits of physical activity and exercise during pregnancy and the implementation of exercise programmes and related health promotion measures in pregnant women. It will provide medical, sports, and fitness professionals both with the knowledge needed to allay undue fears regarding the consequences of exercising during pregnancy and with the practical expertise to offer optimal guidance on exercising to pregnant exercisers and athletes. Readers will find up-to-date evidence on the psychological, social, physiological, body composition, musculoskeletal, and biomechanical changes that occur during pregnancy and their implications for physical activity and exercise. Detailed descriptions are provided of the components of exercise testing and prescription for pregnant women, the current evidence-based and practice-oriented guidelines, and exercise selection and adaptation during pregnancy. Exercises specifically targeting musculoskeletal health are discussed separately, and a concluding chapter explains the nutritional requirements in pregnant women who exercise.

Born sighted, ´´blind´´ Dave Heeley showed athletic promise from an early age, smashing his town´s 1500-metre track record aged just 11 years old. However, a devastating diagnosis shattered his sporting dreams, and he hastily gave up on sporting activity. From Light to Dark charts Dave´s story and how he rediscovered his boyhood talent for running and went on to undertake some of the world´s toughest challenges, including John O´Groats to Land´s End (with a difference); 10 marathons in 10 days; 700 miles of cycling across seven countries in seven days; and the 2015 Marathon des Sables, dubbed the ´´toughest footrace on Earth´´. In 2008 came Dave´s greatest achievement, his name entering the record books as he became the first and to date the only blind person to have completed the ultimate endurance challenge of seven marathons in seven consecutive days on seven different continents. With a foreword by the veteran and record-breaking English adventurer Sir Ranulph Fiennes, From Light to Dark is a heart-warming, inspirational tale of triumph over adversity. 1. Language: English.
