Written by international experts in physiology, exercise physiology, and research, ACSM's Advanced Exercise Physiology gives students an advanced level of understanding of exercise physiology. It emphasizes the acute and chronic effects of exercise on various physiological systems in adults and the integrative nature of these physiological responses.

Chapters detail how different body systems respond to exercise. Systems include nervous, skeletal, muscular, respiratory, cardiovascular, gastrointestinal, metabolic, endocrine, immune, renal, and hematopoietic systems. Additional chapters explain how these responses are altered by heat, cold, hypoxia, microgravity, bed rest, and hyperbaria. Milestones of Discovery pages describe classic or memorable experiments in exercise physiology.

Acute exercise is the physiological responses associated with the immediate effects of a single bout of physical activity regardless of the modality used or the exercise history or the characteristics of the subject, human or animal.Over the years, the physiologists have used a multitude of descriptive terms and synonyms to characterized the acute exercise.
The term chronic exercise refers to the repeated performance of acute exercise; it is batter known as physical training or just training. habitually physical exercise is also used by authors for the same purpose to achieve a training state or for a conditioning effect to exist, the process of chronic exercise must have produced one or more significant morphological or physiological changes from the status before training. although there is no universal agreement among physiologists on the terminology describing these exercise induced alteration with time significant changes that occurs within a week are consider brief or transient effects; those that result after several weeks or months are leveled short term training effect; and those that appear or persist after a year or more are regarded as long term training effect.
