Special Issue "Hydration in Sport and Exercise"
A special issue of Sports (ISSN 2075-4663).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 May 2020).
Interests: exercise; hydration and exercise; dehydration; protein metabolism; human performance; sarcopenia; insulin sensitivity; aging
Although work is still required, the impacts of exercise-induced dehydration upon physiological functions and physical and cognitive performances have been relatively well-established over the years. What has received less attention from researchers, however, is the impact of various hydration strategies, implemented either before, during, following exercise or a combination of these periods, on the aforementioned variables. In fact, although individual athletes or practitioners are well informed about the numerous consequences of inadequate hydration during exercise, little information exists as to how individuals should hydrate for optimizing exercise performance, health and mental abilities while considering the different factors inherent to a given athlete, sport or situation. The goal of this Special Issue is to highlight new research findings examining how the modulation of fluid intake before, during or after exercise impacts the capacity of humans during exercise.
