Opening the October issue of Exercise and Sport Sciences Reviews (ESSR), Sara C. Campbell of Rutgers University provided an editorial covering the inaugural Paper of the Year. The 2019 Paper of the Year for ESSR – “Exercise and the Gut Microbiome: A Review of the Evidence, Potential Mechanisms and Implications for Human Health” by Lucy J. Mailing, Jacob M. Allen, Thomas W. Buford, Christopher J. Fields, and Jeffrey A. Woods – was selected based on the significance and impact of the article. Read more about the award and the articles selected for the other four journals published by the American College of Sports Medicine.  

Articles included in the ESSR October issue:

Per Aagaard, Jens Bojsen-Møller, and Jesper Lundbye-Jensen present a Perspectives for Progress article that offers an overview of potential future experiments in the field of exercise-related neuroplasticity that occurs during strength training.
Read more on “Local heat therapy hastens recovery after eccentric exercise” from authors Kyoungrae Kim, Jacob C. Monroe, Timothy P. Gavin, and Bruno T. Roseguini
Authors David E. Conroy, Constantino M. Lagoa, Eric Hekler, and Daniel E. Rivera present computational modeling approaches that can be applied with intensive longitudinal data on physical activity with the goal of refining behavioral theories and improving interventions.
Authors Kristian Vissing, Thomas Groennebaek, Mathias Wernbom, Per Aagaard, and Truls Raastad present information on low-load blood flow restricted resistance exercise that may have the ability to produce concurrent skeletal muscle myofibrillar, mitochondrial, and microvascular adaptations.
Robert A. Seaborne and Adam P. Sharples propose that metabolites, substrates, and cofactors augmented by exercise facilitate the epigenetic remodeling of skeletal muscle.
Read more on the hypothesis that consistent morning exercise improves exercise adherence and weight management among adults with obesity in the article from authors Leah M. Schumacher, J. Graham Thomas, Hollie A. Raynor, Ryan E. Rhodes, and Dale S. Bond.
Group III/IV muscle afferents influence whole-body endurance capacity by determining the
cardiovascular, ventilatory, and neuromuscular responses to fatiguing exercise as presented by authors Markus Amann, Hsuan-Yu Wan, Taylor S. Thurston, Vincent P. Georgescu, and Joshua C. Weavil.
