Fatigue is something we all experience. It is characterized by tiredness and the want for rest. Whether the athlete likes it or not, fatigue serves a protective function. It is both cognitive and physical in nature. In this course you are introduced to the science of acute fatigue due to training and competition. With rest, acute fatigue dissipates and the body becomes stronger. You will learn about important fatigue theories, and the factors believed to contribute to fatigue such as low fuel supplies, acidity and body temperature.
Sport Specific Strength and Power (5 classroom hours)
In this course we discuss the science of sport specific strength and power development, and training theory concepts as they pertain to the development of strength and power.

Unfortunately, because we don’t fully understand chronic fatigue our knowledge about overtraining remains scant. Hans Selye’s General Adaptation framework suggests it is likely due to too much training and insufficient recovery that leads to a prolonged maladaptation of physiological systems and structures. In this course you are provided insight into chronic fatigue and its relationship to overtraining
