Special Issue "Exercise Physiology: New Frontiers for Exercise Testing and Prescription"
A special issue of Sports (ISSN 2075-4663).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 May 2021).
Interests: 3-min all-out exercise test; critical speed; critical power; VO2max
Within the past decade, research on exercise testing has refined exercise prescription across newly defined exercise intensity domains. These domains are demarcated by the gas exchange/lactate threshold (GET/LT), critical power (CP), or critical speed (CS) in running, whereby exercise exceeding CP/CS and/or the maximal lactate steady state (MLSS), will evoke the attainment of maximum oxygen uptake (VO2max). Key testing advances include the 3-min all-out exercise test for the determination of CP/CS and the verification bout for determination of “true” VO2max. These metrics enable the prediction of exercising performance, provide refined exercise prescription, and are useful in monitoring training adaptations. The Special Issue is soliciting original research and review articles related to these trending areas in exercise testing and prescription. We encourage submissions using and evaluating these testing procedures as well as other novel procedures in all populations including healthy subjects of all ages, athletes, sedentary individuals, and individuals with risk factors or those with diagnosed chronic disease.

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. Sports is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 1400 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.
