Special Issue Information
Analyzing hydration status and monitoring body composition is an important topic when discussing the benefits of leading a healthy lifestyle, due to its influence on health status and sports performance. In the last few years, the scope of research in sports has become increasingly wide and detailed, laying the foundations for the development of innovative evaluation approaches aimed at improving body composition, health, and physical function. The articles published in this research collection highlight the relationship among these specific parameters through longitudinal and transversal experimental designs as well as systematic literature reviews. Contemporary researchers have contributed to the field of research on improving health and sports performance through the development of new measurement methods for assessing hydration status and training strategies for improving body composition and sports performance. The aim of this research collection is to add information on:
1) Effect of hydration status and body composition on sports performance and benefits on health status;
2) Exercise programs for improving body composition and hydration in athletes, taking into account their sport practice;
3) New evidence for hydration and body composition measurement techniques;
Investigators that have conducted studies on these topics are invited to submit manuscripts for consideration for this Special Issue in Nutrients.
