Overtraining in Sport is the first comprehensive text on the physiological, biomedical, and psychological aspects of overtraining and overreaching in sport. Thirty-three leading researchers contribute 17 chapters to this multidisciplinary review of recent findings.

Since the research is multidisciplinary, information is presented in an easy-to-understand manner and background information is provided for those who may not have a comprehensive understanding of each subject area.

Overtraining in Sport is divided into seven sections: Section I examines the prevalence, physiological responses, and methods of monitoring and preventing overtraining in endurance athletes. Section II discusses overtraining in strength/power athletes and their responses to changes in factors such as resistance volume and intensity. Section III considers medical consequences of overtraining, including cardiovascular and hematological responses, neuroendocrine responses, and musculoskeletal and orthopedic effects. Section IV covers immune system responses to overtraining and possible interventions to prevent immunosuppression. Section V documents nutritional factors that may play a part in overtraining. Section VI discusses the psychological aspects of overtraining and covers potential treatment and prevention methods. Section VII summarizes the current status of overtraining research and points to future research needs and directions.

This valuable reference should be on the bookshelf of anyone with a serious interest in the potential effects of training too often or too intensely.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Meet the Author

Richard B. Kreider, PhD, serves as associate professor and assistant department chair in the Department of Human Movement Sciences and Education at the University of Memphis. His primary research focus has been on optimizing human performance by studying nutritional considerations, physiology of ultraendurance exercise, and overtraining. Dr. Kreider has published more than 100 research articles in scientific journals. He is a Fellow of the American College of Sports Medicine and the research digest editor for the International Journal of Sport Nutrition.

Andrew C. Fry, PhD, is an assistant professor in the Department of Human Movement Sciences and Education at the University of Memphis. Dr. Fry's primary research interests lie in resistance exercise, skeletal muscle adaptations to resistance exercise, and overtraining in resistance athletes. He has published more than 75 research articles and also has served as an editorial assistant for the Journal of Applied Sport Science Research from 1985 to 1988. Dr. Fry is the supervising editor for the Sport Science and Medical Committee series in Weightlifting USA, supervising editor for research summaries in Strength & Conditioning, and associate editor of the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research.

Mary O'Toole, PhD, serves as associate professor in the College of Medicine, Department of Orthopedic Surgery, at the University of Tennessee-Memphis. Her main area of expertise is in the medical and physiological aspects of endurance and ultraendurance exercise; she has studied Ironman triathletes for more than 10 years. Dr. O'Toole has published numerous book chapters, peer-reviewed articles, and abstracts, and has lectured internationally on various aspects of endurance exercise. A Fellow of the American College of Sports Medicine, she has also organized and chaired ACSM symposia on ultraendurance exercise.
