Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 September 2020.
A Special Issue on body composition and physical health in sports practice, in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, is being organized. For detailed information on the journal, I refer you to https://www.mdpi.com/journal/ijerph.
Research in human body composition has gained relevance given the recognized health impact of several body components. Many contemporary scientists have contributed to the field of body composition research as it exists today, even though interest in the topic extends back several thousand years. Quantifying human body composition in sports practice plays an important role in monitoring athlete health status, performance, and training regimens. Such analysis can be performed in different contexts and with different approaches, e.g., in cross-sectional studies that aim to characterize sporting group samples and in longitudinal research finalized to define short-term or long-term changes and implications for physical health and performance. Body composition is also fundamental to a correct interpretation of body mass and weight status, in order to plan specific interventions.
The purpose of this research collection is to add information on:
- the effect of body composition on physical health and sport performance;
- current body composition measurement techniques; and
- strategies for improving physical health through sports practice.
This Special Issue is open to the subject area of body composition and physical health in sports practice. The keywords listed below provide an outline of some of the possible areas of interest.
