Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce a Special Issue titled “Focus on Exercise Physiology and Sports Performance”. Exercise physiology and sports performance explore the intricate relationship between physical activity, the body's physiological responses, and athletic performance. The study of how the body functions during exercise is central to this field.

Exercise physiology examines the physiological changes that occur in the muscular, cardiovascular, respiratory, and metabolic systems as the body responds to the demands of physical activity. This understanding enables us to design effective training programs aimed at specific physiological adaptations, leading to improved performance and reduced risk of injury. However, sports performance focuses on the practical application of these physiological principles in real-world sports settings. It involves the study of techniques, strategies, and training methods that can help athletes reach their peak performance. This includes the analysis of athlete's biomechanics, the use of technological advancements in performance monitoring, and the development of recovery and nutrition plans that support optimal training and competition.

The goal of this Special Issue is to bring together the latest research that underlines how the body adapts to exercise and provides insights into how training can enhance performance and optimize athlete's capabilities. We invite researchers and experts in related fields to submit their work and contribute to this Special Issue. Submissions of original research articles and review articles are invited.

Dr. Laikang Yu
