Synopsis

Esports continue to captivate audiences worldwide, but few understand the unique demands placed on the athletes. Conditioning for Esports: A Guide to Training and Performance is the first resource of its kind to explore the specific training needs of serious gamers. Written by top experts in the esport field, it applies evidence-based knowledge to real-world scenarios that will help you understand the science—and the necessity—of training the body to sustain the repetitive stress that comes with balancing fine motor skills, mental focus, and gaming performance.

With insights from exercise physiologists, registered dietitians, strength and conditioning professionals, and physical and occupational therapists, you will have access to real-world esport narratives grounded in research and analysis. Gain essential knowledge on injury prevention, specialized exercise routines, cognitive enhancement, and esport-specific nutrition strategies. Plus, delve into often-overlooked topics such as overuse injuries; the mind–body connection; and sleep, fatigue, and recovery.

Conditioning for Esports is your ultimate guide to preparing athletes to dominate the esport arena and achieve optimal performance in the competitive world of gaming.
