Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue focuses on the importance of physical exercise from a positive and negative perspective. We seek studies that emphasize the motivational perspective from the current theoretical models, discussing the variables that allow increasing self-determination of physical practice from a positive viewpoint. Studies analyzing the psychological variables related to inadequate physical practice, such as addiction to exercise or obsessive passion for sports practice, are also of interest.

Original research articles, meta-analyses, systematic reviews, quasi-experimental, and descriptive correlational studies with large samples and case studies will be well received. Priority will be given to studies that make novel contributions from a methodological approach, advancing the existing knowledge on this topic.
