Introduction: Exercise professionals can follow readily available published guidelines, provided from major health organisations, when designing comprehensive exercise programs consisting of cardiorespiratory, resistance, flexibility, and neuromotor exercise. Paradoxically, when combining these types of exercise into the same exercise session, there are no current recommendations for the most appropriate exercise order. The purpose of this study was to provide preliminary evidence for…

This American Heart Association Scientific Statement for health professionals summarizes the evidence for the benefits of physical activity in the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular disease, provides suggestions to healthcare professionals for implementing physical activity programs for their patients, and identifies areas for future investigation.


The session RPE is a reliable method to quantify various intensities of resistance training to quantify exercise intensity during high- intensity, moderate-intensity, and low-intensity resistance training.

ACSM's Guidelines for Exercise Testing and Prescription

This book discusses the benefits and risks associated with physical activity, and the proposed exercise prescription for patients with Cardiovascular and Cerebrovascular Disease and other chronic diseases and health conditions.

There seems to be an explanation for the interference of strength development during concurrent training; it is now clear that different forms of exercise induce antagonistic intracellular signaling mechanisms that, in turn, could have a negative impact on the muscle's adaptive response to this particular form of training.

Waging war on modern chronic diseases: primary prevention through exercise biology

A blueprint for exercise biology research in the new millennium is developed and it is proposed that exercise biologists do not study "the effect of physical activity" but in reality study the effect of reintroducing exercise into an unhealthy sedentary population that is genetically programmed to expect physical activity.
