Special Issue "Advances in Personalized Exercise Prescription for Chronic Disease Prevention and Rehabilitation"
A special issue of International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health (ISSN 1660-4601). This special issue belongs to the section "Global Health".
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 March 2020.
It is well-established that regular exercise training confers numerous health and wellness benefits. Accordingly, exercise remains a central feature of prevention, rehabilitation, and other public-health-related programs. However, not all individuals respond positively to exercise. Indeed, there is considerable individual variability in training adaptations, including the phenomenon of ‘responders’ and ‘non-responders’. This variability in training responsiveness is not well-understood and may be attributable to various factors, including the absence of set definitions in the literature for responders/non-responders and a one-size-fits-all approach to exercise prescription.
This Special Issue seeks original papers on advances in personalized exercise prescription for chronic disease prevention and rehabilitation. We also welcome high-quality systematic reviews related to these matters. I would be pleased if this Special Issue serves as a trigger for the provision of insightful data for the design of personalized exercise prescriptions that will optimize the training responsiveness of prevention and rehabilitation programs.
