Detailed Course Outline:
In this course you are introduced to the fundamentals of training science. This knowledge underlies your ability to design the type of training that will most effectively improve an athlete’s performance. Essential concepts such as homeostasis, core training principles, magnitude and timing of the training stimulus, periodization theory, tapering, load quantification and designing the annual training plan are all discussed. It is strongly recommended to complete Physiological Development Through the Athlete's Lifespan and Energy Systems and Motor Performance Abilities in Athletes before enrolling in this course.
