Sports Nutrition Part 1

$210.00

This course reviews key aspects of exercise physiology and explains the evidence-based nutrition strategies pertaining to the use of the macronutrients, carbohydrates, protein and fat, in exercise performance, lean mass gains and other crucial factors related to performance and training. This course also reviews basic functional anatomy, neuromuscular physiology and principles of exercise training that is pertinent to the discussion of helping your patients/clients become superior athletes in their chosen sport, as well as explaining the primary energy systems used in various sports endeavours and the complementary nutritional strategies to optimize muscle energy production.

  • Post Competition Nutritional Intake
  • Tournament Day/Competition Nutritional Strategies

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.
