Sports Nutrition 2

$420.00

This course reviews fluid and electrolyte replenishment as well as other factors affecting thermoregulation and prevention of heat illness, hyperthermia and hyponatremia. It also explains oxidative stress and immune challenges associated with exercise and regular training and how to minimize the negative effects of both. The course also provides a detailed, evidence-based review of ergogenic aids (supplements) that are commonly used by various athletes to influence lean mass gains, explosive strength, endurance performance, and speed endurance (the ability to maintain maximum speed for optimal periods and/or perform repeated bouts of explosive activity as required for hockey, soccer, lacrosse, basketball, squash, tennis etc.. The course also highlights other ergogenic nutrition and supplementation practices that are safe and do not violate the regulations of the International Olympic Committee and other Sports Governing Bodies.

Learning Objectives For Sports Nutrition Part 1 and Sports Nutrition Part 2

  1. The student will develop an in-depth understanding of exercise physiology and the contribution of key macronutrients in the energy production used in both aerobic and anaerobic systems.
  2. The student will develop have an in-depth understanding of the human clinical studies showing the ergogenic effects (athletic performance effects) of specific dietary strategies, supplements, water, and electrolyte replenishment.
  3. The student will have the skills to provide patients with personalized dietary and supplementation strategies to enhance their athletic performance, lean mass gains and other athletic parameters, and slow and reverse key aspects of the aging process related to loss of lean mass, sarcopenia, bone loss and cardiorespiratory and immune system decline.
