Q&A: The 2nd Edition of ACSM's Advance Exercise Physiology

from By Peter A. Farrell, Ph.D., FACSM

Peter A. Farrell, Ph.D., FACSM, is a Professor of Kinesiology at East Carolina University. In 2003, he was awarded the Citation Award from the American College of Sports Medicine. He is a member of the National Academy of Kinesiology and served as an Exercise Councilor for Exercise Physiology in the American Physiological Society. Dr. Farrell taught Advanced Exercise Physiology at Penn State University for 16 years. His research focuses on endocrine aspects of exercise physiology.

The second edition of ACSM’s Advanced Exercise Physiology was just released by ACSM’s publishing partner Lippincott Williams & Wilkins. Peter A. Farrell, Ph.D. FACSM; Michael J. Joyner, M.D., FACSM; and Vincent J. Caiozzo, Ph.D., FACSM edited this extensive update. They collaborated with a team of internationally prominent scientists that revised the individual chapters, each an expert in one of the many topic areas addressed in the publication.

SMB had the opportunity to ask Dr. Farrell a few questions about this update – especially how it differs from the first edition. Questions include:
  • What is the purpose of this book?
  • What are the unique features that set this publication apart from other exercise physiology textbooks?
  • How have scientific updates from the newest literature been addressed, and is the text organized any differently than the first edition? More
