Introduction to the Frontiers Research Topic: Optimization of exercise countermeasures for human space flight - Lessons from terrestrial physiology and operational considerations.

Front Physiol. 2019 Mar 7;10:173.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/30899226

Note: From the abstract: "...the aim of the Frontiers Research Topic Optimization of Exercise Countermeasures for Human Space Flight - Lessons from Terrestrial Physiology and Operational Considerations, is to synthesize current terrestrial exercise physiology knowledge and consider how this might be employed to optimize the use of exercise CM. The purpose of this Perspective, which serves as a preface to the Research Topic is threefold: to briefly review the use and apparent efficacy of exercise in space, to consider the impact of the transition from ISS to exploration mission vehicles and habitats, and to identify areas of terrestrial exercise physiology where current knowledge might contribute to the optimization of CM exercise for exploration. These areas include individual variation, high intensity interval training, strength development/maintenance, concurrent training, plyometric/impact exercise, and strategies to enhance exercise efficacy." Articles in this Research Topic have appeared in recent SPACELINE Current Awareness Lists. A complete list of articles in this Research Topic is available at: https://www.frontiersin.org/research-topics/7590/optimisation-of-exercise-countermeasures-for-human-space-flight---lessons-from-terrestrial-physiolog#articles.
