Monitoring Body Composition

 Monitoring Body Composition

Optimizing nutrition and body composition can have a role in performance.  But achieving optimal body composition must be done in a safe and healthy way.  Weighing athletes, punishment for lack of weight control, disparaging comments by a coach about body composition, and linking body weight to performance can lead to pathogenic weight control behaviors and ultimately to eating disorders. The above policies will allow for the safest possible initial assessment and safe monitoring of weight and composition.
