Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Healthy individuals, as well as athletes and professionals engaged in stressful activities, cannot improve their health through a single strategy. As a result of the complexity of the process of improving a person, marginal improvements are required, as well as the continuous monitoring and control of effects as they occur at all times, throughout the day and night.

Even though the idea of considering 24 hours as a unicum is becoming increasingly prevalent from the standpoint of athletes, it has not yet become widespread among healthy individuals and professionals.

In addition to physiological adaptations, mental and physical fatigue, nutrition, and integration, sleep, environment, stress, respiratory rate, concentration, equipment, and technology are all factors that can enhance performance by even 1%.

In this regard, marginal gains should be the goal of all professionals involved in this field in the future, including coaches, trainers, nutritionists, psychologists, physiotherapists, doctors, biomechanists, etc. 

In this Special Issue, we look forward to providing scientific input to help industry professionals convert marginal gains into effective improvement strategies. Researchers are invited to contribute novel research for publication in this Special Issue. Submissions can be original articles and critical reviews, such as systematic reviews or meta-analyses. There are no restrictions on the study design or methodology (i.e., secondary analyses, cross-sectional or longitudinal designs, intervention studies, or observational studies).
