Course Detail
Course Components:
In this course we will explore the physiological factors that limit human performance for endurance and power sports. We then identify those limiting factors capable of adapting to training and what types of training might provide the most robust stimuli. Next we will explore the time course of recovery, adaptation, and detraining for each limiting factor. Students will integrate this information to develop training programs which we then compare and contrast with conventional best-practices programs. Finally, we will explore interventions to maximize performance and use modeling simulations to optimize pacing strategies.
