Relative Energy Deficiency in Sport in Male Athletes: A Commentary on Its Presentation Among Selected Groups of Male Athletes

Louise M. Burke, Graeme L. Close, Bronwen Lundy, Martin Mooses, James P. Morton, and Adam S. Tenforde

Recognition of low energy availability (LEA) in male athletes, associated with a range of negative outcomes, played a role in the framing of the Relative Energy Deficiency in Sport (RED-S) syndrome ( Mountjoy et al., 2014 ). Indeed, a variety of scenarios have been investigated in which male

Eating Behaviors Among Male Bodybuilders and Runners: Application of the Trans-Contextual Model of Motivation

Lisa Chaba, Stéphanie Scoffier-Mériaux, Fabienne d’Arripe-Longueville, and Vanessa Lentillon-Kaestner

focuses on bodybuilding and running, two sports popular among male athletes, who are, thus, at risk of an eating disorder (e.g.,  Chapman & Woodman, 2016 ; Devrim, Bilgic, & Hongu, 2018 ; Harris & Peterson, 2020 ). Bodybuilders focus on gaining muscle mass, whereas runners focus on leaning body mass (e

Eating Disorders in Male Athletes: Factors Associated With Onset and Maintenance

Julie Freedman, Sally Hage, and Paula A. Quatromoni

). There are concerns about the validity of these estimates, particularly for males. Most studies reporting prevalence rates of EDs in male athletes used scales that were not validated, relied on self-report rather than clinical diagnoses, and used homogeneous samples ( Petrie & Greenleaf, 2007 ).

Agreement Between Standard Body Composition Methods to Estimate Percentage of Body Fat in Young Male Athletes

Asunción Ferri-Morales, Marcus Vinicius Nascimento-Ferreira, Dimitris Vlachopoulos, Esther Ubago-Guisado, Ana Torres-Costoso, Augusto Cesar F. De Moraes, Alan R. Barker, Luis A. Moreno, Vicente Martínez-Vizcaino, and Luis Gracia-Marco

examine the intermethods agreement of DXA and BIA with ADP to assess the %BF in young male athletes, such as swimmers, footballers, and cyclists. A number of authors report that hydrodensitometry is poorly tolerated by young people, and ADP, as discussed previously, is an alternative and more accurate

Therefore, the primary purpose of this study was to assess the maturity-related differences in systemic pulmonary and localized neuromuscular and oxygenation FTs among youth male athletes. Furthermore, previous literature has yet to evaluate

Effects of Subsensory Noise and Fatigue on Knee Landing and Cross-over Cutting Biomechanics in Male Athletes

Xingda Qu, Jianxin Jiang, and Xinyao Hu

biomechanics caused by subsensory noise would be more substantial in the fatigue condition. Methods A convenience sample of 32 healthy male athletes recruited from the university participated in this study. These participants were all actively involved in sports activities at least twice a week. Exclusion

Vitamin D and Cortisol as Moderators of the Relationship Between Testosterone and Exercise Performance in Adolescent Male Athletes

Blair Crewther, Christian Cook, John Fitzgerald, Michal Starczewski, Michal Gorski, and Joanna Orysiak

Specifically, we assessed the independent effects of 25(OH)D on exercise performance, before expanding on prior studies by considering 25(OH)D and cortisol as moderating factors with testosterone as the predictor of
