The main purpose of the training process is not only to achieve a high level of success in the sport, but also to induce physical adaptations that enhance sport-specific skills and health. In this regard, the manipulation of training and exercise parameters (e.g., volume, intensity, density) are key factors to maximize training adaptations and physical performance. In order to achieve high levels of success, coaches and strength and conditioning coaches should correctly monitor these loads, which should be carefully planned for the optimization of athletic performance and health. Moreover, since the athlete and/or practitioner is a unique individual, it should be relevant to focus on individual responses rather than only on the group’s results, since this approach could result in missing important individual responses.
Thus, the aim of this Special issue entitled “Physical fitness and Sport Sciences: Training and Injury Prevention” is to provide in-depth knowledge in the form of original work, review articles, and meta-analyses on the effects and effectiveness to different training and exercise methods, considered together with the importance of considering an individualized approach in training and exercise. A special emphasis will be placed on athletic performance, gender, and injury prevention in youth athletes during the different stages of maturation.
