Healthy lifestyles, such as the practice of sports or daily physical activity and proper nutrition, are environmental factors that condition health. Research on how to improve health is approached from an interdisciplinary perspective, and a specific vision is also given towards activities that are conditioned by the environment, especially in territories that take advantage of their natural environment.
Mountain sport activities are growing to be more popular all around the world, with the number of people involved in these activities increasing exponentially. However, the science behind these sports and approaches to improving performance and reducing injuries and fatal accidents during their practice have not been focused on much in recent years.
This Special Issue seeks research papers focusing on the improvement in health through exercise and nutrition in general as well as specifically through outdoor activities related with the mountains or with water sports. Papers detailing methods of improving performance and avoiding injuries and accidents in these sports are also encouraged. These could take a multidisciplinary approach, including but not limited to: ergogenic aids, biomechanics, physiotherapy, training, physiological and psychological factors. We also welcome rescue and security protocols developed by national agencies that could be of interest for researchers and trainers of the field. Original research papers as well as systematic reviews and meta-analysis will be considered.
