Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

It is our pleasure to have this special issue on “Exercise and sports in men: from health to sports performance’’ with the Journal of Men’s Health.

Sport is a double-edged sword regarding effects on health. Positive effects are obtained mainly physical activity, which is the main part of most sports. Physical exercise is aimed primarily at improving health and physical capacity. Also, physical training is aimed primarily at increasing the individual’s maximum physical capacity and performance.

In order to improve sports performance, athletes periodise their training, nutrition and recovery within the context of a training season. For those not in exercise training, these controllable lifestyle factors correspond to exercise, diet and sleep, which require modification during the lifespan. Taking this a step further, rather than preventing disease, this proactive, personalised approach optimises health. Health should be a positive combination of physical, mental and social well being, not simply an absence of illness.

The purpose of this special issue is to demonstrates the important of exercise and sports in men. In this special issue, we welcome the contributions that describe and list the link between exercise and sports in terms of men's health. Your contribution is welcome in the form of an original article, case report, commentary and systematic review with meta-analysis.This special issue offers the opportunity to address the following types of topics.


Exercises; sports performance; training load monitoring; sports training; nutrition; psychology; sports medicine; Gender Differences in sports and physical activities
