Knowledge and understanding of biochemistry and metabolism are crucial for a career in sports nutrition, nutrition, sport performance physiology and analysis. In a world, where athletes train to win by margins in milliseconds, the body is challenged to its limits. Consequently, energy provision and the right strategy to prepare for competitions with supplementation and nutrition are extremely important. This course will introduce into Biochemistry and especially in metabolic pathways and their interaction in different organs/tissues with focus on exercise and training response.

Cynnwys cwrs

Knowledge will be provided on how metabolism is regulated on the cellular and systemic levels. Students will learn how nutrition and exercise will impact metabolism acutely and chronically. Connection between metabolic processes and health and training outcomes will be addressed. This module is important for all students seeking improved insight in Physiology and Nutrition. Students who are aiming for a Nutrition-MSc are highly advised to select this module. Biochemistry might be compulsory for their future studies. Class time will be a combination of lectures and thorough discussion of research data from publications in seminars

For the essay assignment: In order to achieve D- to D+ (40-49%), students should be able to present a basic report of the underlying theories and some current research related to the questions stated in the assignment information. They will be able to use basic understanding of whole body and skeletal muscle metabolism to demonstrate how findings entailing the critical power concept can be used to address basic metabolic demands at critical power. Wording and structure of essay is appropriate and current and recent literature is addressed convincingly. For the MCQs, 40% of the questions need to be correctly answered across the assignments.

For the essay assignment: In order to achieve A- to A* (70+ %), students should be able to present an outstanding in-depth report of the underlying theories and current research related to the critical power concept questions stated in the assignment information. They will be able to use their deep understanding of whole body and skeletal muscle metabolism to demonstrate how findings entailing the critical power concept can be used to thoroughly explain metabolic and physiological demands at critical power. Wording and structure of essay is outstanding, there is an extensive, thorough but concise use of current and recent literature. For the MCQ assignments, >70% of the questions need to be correctly answered across the assignments.
