With reference to the theme Contemporary Research in Sports, Exercise and Health: Measurements and Protocols, we have assembled eminent researchers from Malaysia to share their expertise and research findings in various subdisciplines of sports, exercise and health. A major aim of this book is to provide scientific evidence and in-depth exploration of the various types of measurements and protocols used in research in the area of sports, exercise and health. This book has been specifically prepared with the needs of both students and teaching staff in exercise and sports science in mind. However, we strongly believe that it is also relevant for students in other related fields, and of interest to athletes, coaches, fitness instructors, sports nutritionists, and health practitioners.
