Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (10 June 2019).
A printed edition of this Special Issue is available here.
Interests: Match-day strategies to enhance the performance of team sports athletes, physiological and performance responses to intermittent exercise, the use of nutritional ergogenic aids for performance in team sports athletes
Interests: Paralympic athletes; exercise-induced gastrointestinal symptoms; diet quality; dietary supplements; nutrition knowledge
Athletes and their support personnel are constantly seeking evidence-informed recommendations to enhance athletic performances during competition and to optimize training-induced adaptations. Accordingly, nutritional and supplementation strategies are commonplace when seeking to achieve these aims, with such practices being implemented before, during, or after competition and/or training in a periodized manner. Performance nutrition is becoming increasingly specialized and needs to consider the diversity of athletes and the nature of the competitions. Nutrients, therefore, welcomes the submission of manuscripts, either describing original research or reviewing scientific literature, on the topic of nutrition support for athletic performance, which highlight recent advances in the discipline.
