Prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of the overtraining syndrome: joint consensus statement of the European College of Sport Science and the American College of Sports Medicine.
The recent status of possible markers for the detection of overtraining syndrome is provided and it is generally thought that symptoms of OTS, such as fatigue, performance decline, and mood disturbances, are more severe than those of NFOR.
Prevention, diagnosis and treatment of the Overtraining Syndrome
A “check list” is proposed that might help the physicians and sport scientists to decide on the diagnosis of OTS and to exclude other possible causes of underperformance.
How much is too much? (Part 1) International Olympic Committee consensus statement on load in sport and risk of injury
An expert group to review the scientific evidence for the relationship of load and health outcomes in sport provides athletes, coaches and support staff with practical guidelines to manage load in sport.
Neuroplasticity — Exercise-Induced Response of Peripheral Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor
Results suggest that acute aerobic, but not strength exercise increases basal peripheral BDNF concentrations, although the effect is transient, and from a few studies the authors learn that circulating BDNF originates both from central and peripheral sources.
Prevention, diagnosis and treatment of the overtraining syndrome: Joint consensus statement of the European College of Sport Science (ECSS) and the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM)
The recent status of possible markers for the detection of OTS is provided and several markers (hormones, performance tests, psychological tests, biochemical and immune markers) are used, but none of them meets all criteria to make its use generally accepted.

IOC consensus statement: dietary supplements and the high-performance athlete
The appropriate use of some supplements can benefit the athlete, but others may harm the athlete’s health, performance, and/or livelihood and reputation and expert professional opinion and assistance is strongly advised before an athlete embarks on supplement use.
Time course of performance changes and fatigue markers during intensified training in trained cyclists.
It is indicated that a state of overreaching can already be induced after 7 days of intensified training with limited recovery, as shown in the results of the studies of normal, intensified, and recovery training of endurance cyclists.

The duration and intensity of the physical task appear to be important factors in the decrease in physical performance due to mental fatigue, and the most important factor responsible for the negative impact of mental fatigue on endurance performance is a higher perceived exertion.
