On behalf of IJERPH, I am organizing a Special Issue about exercise and sport under stressful conditions. IJERPH is a peer-reviewed scientific journal that publishes manuscripts in the interdisciplinary area of environmental health sciences and public health.
It is well established that exercise is an acute stressor to skeletal muscle, cardiopulmonary, and many other organ systems. Based on specific demands/stressors, organisms will adapt to better combat homeostatic disturbances during exercise challenge. Adaptations to exercise are largely influenced by stressful environments and conditions, that have the ability to improve or inhibit adaptations. In this Special Issue, we are looking for original investigations describing how stressful environments/conditions during sport and exercise influence adaptive responses. Below are some examples of topics fitting the scope of this Special Issue for IJERPH:
- Exercise during hypoxia/altitude
- Exercise and heat/cold stress
- Exercise and oxidative stress
- Supramaximal exercise
- Exercise and nutrient deprivation
- Exercise and psychological stress
