OVERTRAINING SYNDROME – THE BOOK
Besides being responsible for the majority of the articles published in the field and a reviewer for the majority of the articles in the field that he does not participate as an author, in the last 05 years, Dr. Cadegiani is also the sole author of one of the most comprehensive books in Overtraining Syndrome, published in October of 2020 by Springer Nature, named “Overtraining Syndrome in Athletes – A Comprehensive Review and Novel Perspectives”, first published in October of 2020. In this book, he shows the classical and new theories on overtraining syndrome, the mechanisms that lead to this syndrome, novel clinical and biochemical markers, how to diagnose OTS, practical approaches to the athlete suspected for OTS, among other aspects of OTS. Basically, Dr. Cadegiani proposes a change from the view that excessive training is the major cause of overtraining syndrome to the concept of OTS being a multifactorial disorder, largely influenced by eating, sleeping, and mental patterns. In the book, the author also proposes a standardization and uniformization of the methodological assays of hormonal and metabolic markers for future researches in the field of Sports Endocrinology, in order to improve the quality of the data on this field. It is a must-read for scientists and enthusiasts of sports medicine.
