Special Issue Information
Competitive sport requires a large amount of training (and competition, for instance, in team sports). This will inevitably produce fatigue, with multiple mechanisms originating, for example, from the neuromuscular or cardiovascular system. The complexity of fatigue is reinforced by the interaction between all possible mechanisms and the dependence on the type of exercise performed. Understanding these mechanisms and the recovery processes (or strategies) are key factors to optimize training and, therefore, adaptations and performance. Moreover, multiple strategies could help practitioners to build efficient training sessions and plans while also preventing injuries. This could include the control of fitness level and the monitoring of training loads. As such, the aim of this Special Issue is to provide new insights into fatigue and recovery processes. We welcome papers exploring physiological mechanisms or sports performance in laboratory or sport settings. We also welcome papers that explore new strategies or tools that could help practitioners to establish efficient training plans.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process.
