Physical exercise and performance in sports are strongly linked to physiological variables, which are dependent on anatomical, functional, and biomechanical aspects and motor strategies. Understanding the effect of exercise and the acute and chronic dose–response patterns involves studying specific changes in muscular and cardiovascular systems that lead to changes in health and human performance (i.e., wellness and physical activity, the response to different sports, administration of exercise programs, warm-ups and cooldowns, recovery strategies), also due to the strength and conditioning training and athletes’ use of different sport equipment. Consequently, the knowledge provided by scientific studies on performance physiology can be useful to optimize coaching and training programs and aid adequate long-term development of athletes. In-depth understanding of the effects of training stimuli on specific adaptations will contribute to increase the scientific knowledge of how to achieve better athletic performance and reduce the risk of sport injuries. This Special Issue of the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health aims to create a multidisciplinary discussion on up-to-date scientific data in this area and, for these reasons, we invite all authors to submit original research and/or specific reviews that improve our understanding of “Exercise and Performance Physiology”.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2300 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
