Written at a graduate level, the Second Edition of ACSM’s Advanced Exercise Physiology enables experienced students to develop an in-depth understanding of exercise physiology along with its related topics and applications. Both the immediate and long-term effects of exercise on individual body systems are described in detail, and the text emphasizes how each body system’s physiological response to exercise is interdependent.  Moreover, it examines how these physiological responses are affected by heat, cold, hypoxia, microgravity, rest, and hyperbaria.

This Second Edition features a team of international authors and editors whose expertise spans general physiology, exercise physiology, and research.  Together, they have substantially revised, updated, and reorganized the text to incorporate feedback from both instructors and students.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Erik H VanIterson, M.S., M.Bio(University of Minnesota School of Kinesiology)
Description: This is an evidence-based book on the principles and theories that comprise the field of exercise physiology and subdisciplines. It is a much-needed and welcome update of the first edition published in 2005.
Purpose: The purpose is to address the major areas of investigation in exercise physiology research and practice. It is authored by some of the field's most distinguished scientists and practitioners. Successfully executed, the objectives are met in a comprehensive and authoritative manner.
Audience: The primary audience is upper-level undergraduate students, graduate students, and/or researchers and practitioners who have a strong understanding of exercise physiology. The diverse author list suggests that each topic is written with the highest level of authority and credibility.
Features: The book is divided into specific sections and subdivided thereafter into subchapters. Each chapter can stand alone to a certain extent, and therefore many chapters can be read out of sequential order. Chapters also contain a sufficient amount of figures and graphs to help readers understand the text and emphasize specific points of interest.
Assessment: This is a thorough, current, and authoritative contribution to the field of exercise physiology. It is well supported by current and historical research and authored by some of the field's leading experts in physiology and exercise physiology. I highly recommend this book if you are interested in expanding your understanding of the science behind exercise physiology.
