The second edition of ACSM's Advanced Exercise Physiology has been substantially revised, updated, and reorganized in response to feedback from instructors and students. Written at a graduate level, the textbook describes the immediate and long-term effects of exercise on individual body systems and emphasizes how each system's physiological response to exercise is interdependent. It examines how these physiological responses are affected by heat, cold, hypoxia, microgravity, rest, and hyperbaria.
The textbook was edited by ACSM Fellows Peter A. Farrell, Ph.D.; Michael J. Joyner, M.D.; and Vincent J. Caiozzo, Ph.D., who worked with a team of international contributors. Features include "Test Your Understanding" questions and "Milestone of Discovery" vignettes.
