From the Back Cover
There's plenty of conventional wisdom on health and fitness--but how much of it is scientifically sound? The truth is: less than you'd think.
In Which Comes First, Cardio or Weights?, physicist and award-winning journalist Alex Hutchinson tackles dozens of commonly held beliefs and looks at just what research science has--and has not--proven to be true:
Should I exercise when I'm sick? - Do I get the same workout from the elliptical machine that I get from running? - What role does my brain play in fatigue? - Will running ruin my knees? - To lose weight, is it better to eat less or exercise more? - How should I adapt my workout routine as I get older? - Does it matter what I'm thinking about when I train? - Will drinking coffee help or hinder my performance? - Should I have sex the night before a competition?
This myth-busting book covers the full spectrum of exercise science and offers the latest in research from around the globe, as well as helpful diagrams and plenty of practical tips on using proven science to improve fitness, reach weight loss goals, and achieve better competition results.See all Product description

If you've ever ventured online for sports science information and advice then you'll probably agree the wheat to chaff ratio is very poor. By contrast the references section at the back of this book is 36 pages long.
You can get a very good idea of what the book is like by reading the preview pages on Amazon. This is one of those books you can read cover to cover and then keep on the shelf as a reference. Highly recommended.
Confirmed some of the things I've noticed; and gave me some useful info on areas where I've been going wrong.
An easy read too. Anyone doing any amount of fitness should find something of interest here.
