In this course we explore the body’s energy systems, how they are used in different circumstances and the limitations of each. You will learn how our bodies:
- produce energy
- adapt to training and recovery after activity
It explains concepts in training and athletic development which you may encounter in your own sporting career.
The course is led by Professor Ron Maughan, featuring insights from notable physiologists, coaches and athletes.
The course will take around 1 hour and 30 minutes to complete.
