Athletes: From Performance Analysis to Injury Prevention opens with a study aiming to assess innovative theoretical approaches for studying human opportunities in sports where maximum achievement is caused by modern technology. The authors discuss the macro- and micro-nutrient requirements that must be followed by the athlete, depending on the athlete's total daily energy expenditure, the type of sport, their gender and environmental conditions. Subsequently, the components of a proper bike fit are explored, focusing on the three interfaces a human has with a bike: foot-pedal, pelvis-saddle, and hands-handlebar. Equipment needs, bike anatomy, and the process of performing a bike fit are reviewed. Lastly, the authors propose to identify at-risk women's team sport athletes by identifying psychological perceptions of high vs. low injuries and/or fatigued athletes.
