The European College of Sport Science and the American College of Sports Medicine have released a new consensus statement regarding the prevention, diagnosis/evaluation (e.g., biochemical, functional, psychological), and treatment of overtraining syndrome. The paper also discusses key definitions, epidemiology, and provides an interesting flow chart for diagnosing overtraining syndrome in athletes.
