Abstract : With the evolution of exercise science a vast amount of information concerning the physiological effects of training has been generated. Understanding the basic training responses and adaptations of various modes of conditioning can give the clinician insights into exercise prescription. The purpose of this manuscript is not to present an exhaustive review, but provide the reader with a basic overview of the physiological effects of training. Aerobic training results in a number of adaptations in humans. The magnitude of this response is dependent upon a number of factors. It depends upon the type, the intensity, the frequency and the duration of the training; as well as the characteristics of the person undergoing training. In this section, we will discuss the physiological changes associated with the adaptation to training and how the characteristics of the individual and the training itself affect this adaptation. Keywords: Physical training, Aerobic capacity, Muscle strength, exercise.
