Appropriate medical management of top-performance athletes can only occur in co-operation with the athlete and coach. This practical book provides medical guidelines for coaches and health professionals involved in elite sport. It gives a coherent review of the physiological, medical and psychological limits of physical performance that should not be exceeded in sports training. The individual chapters, written by renowned authorities in medicine and coaching, not only deal with the medical check-ups of athletes, but also offer new insights into ever-topical themes such as nutrition, heart rate monitoring, high-altitude training, overtraining and doping.
