Be it doping in sport, hot topics like Caster Semenya or Oscar Pistorius, or the dehydration myth, we try to translate the science behind sports and sports performance.

Featured series on The Science of Sport

Over the course of the last 10 months, we've tried from time to time to run series on various aspects of exercise physiology. In these series, we try to methodically move through the topics to debunk some myths and provide practical advice that will hopefully improve understanding and performance.

These series include the following - each line is a link so you'll be taken directly to the article in question:

  • Exercise and dehydration
  • Sudden death during exercise
  • Muscle cramps
  • Running technique
  • Running economy
As we move forward, we're planning as range of other (hopefully) interesting series - as we go, we'll continue to post the links here so that you can catch all the content at a glance!
