Modern exercise physiology had its beginnings in the early 20th century in response to the military need to improve the physical performance of soldiers; the democratization of sports practice linked to national pride with international sports successes; and advances in the knowledge of integrative and regulatory physiology that began to establish how physical exercise could be an effective tool to regulate different homeostatic mechanisms that promote health. Currently, exercise physiology, backed by extensive scientific evidence obtained in recent decades, studies the acute responses and chronic adaptations produced through physical exercise in different tissues, organs, and systems. Its application is mainly focused on the field of physical education, sports performance, health promotion, and disease prevention and therapy.
From a multidisciplinary approach originating from disciplines such as physiology, physical activity and sports sciences, nutrition, medicine, biology, and biochemistry, among others, this Special Issue aims to include articles that delve into the knowledge of physiological mechanisms through which physical activity or exercise improves health prevents certain diseases and regulates the pathophysiology of different diseases. This Special Issue is seeking original articles, systematic reviews, and meta-analyses. The suggested topic areas include:
- Exercise and respiratory and cardiovascular disease;
- Physical activity and health promotion in older adults;
- Exercise physiology and nutrition related to muscle damage;
- Physical exercise and neuropsychiatric diseases;
- Metabolic regulation in obesity and related pathologies;
- Impact of exercise and physical activity on cancer prognosis.
