(0 votes)

Topic: Practical Applications of Exercise Physiology and Fatigue for Athletes and Coaches

Exercise physiology is the study short-term and long-term adaptations in response to physical exertion in sport, which also governs what our bodies are and are not capable of doing while racing and training. In this webinar, you will learn more about the key physiological models and how they are related to fatigue and performance.

We will cover the different physiological models for training, how they explain improvements in performance and either accumulate or delay the onset of fatigue in such as fashion that any athlete or coach can use to get the most out of any athletes training!

Specific Topics include:

  • VO2 max and VO2 peak
  • Lactate Threshold
  • Cardiovascular/Anaerobic models
  • Energy supply/depletion models
  • Muscle recruitment/power models
  • Biomechanical models
  • Psychological models
