Who is the course for?

This course is designed for teenagers (ages 13-18) who are interested in sports and want to improve their performance. The course is suitable for teens who are new to sports physiology and anatomy, as well as those who already have some knowledge in the subject. The course is intended to provide a comprehensive understanding of how the body works during sports and exercise, and how to optimize performance through proper nutrition, training, and rest. 

Learning Path

In this introductory lesson, students will gain an understanding of the different branches of sports physiology, including anatomy, biomechanics, and exercise physiology, and how they relate to understanding human movement and athletic performance.

In this lesson, students will learn about the basics of skeletal muscle anatomy, including the three types of muscles (smooth, cardiac, and skeletal) and the differences between them. They will also explore the structure and function of skeletal muscle, including muscle contractions, involuntary vs voluntary muscle movements, and the sliding filament theory.

In this lesson, students will study the fundamental concepts of energy and ATP, including how ATP is generated and the three main energy systems (ATP-PC, Lactic Acid System, and Aerobic System). They will also learn how to use multiple energy systems in their sport or activity to optimize performance.

In this lesson, students will delve into the world of muscle strength and endurance, including the three types of muscle fibers (SO, FO, and FG), muscle fiber types, and how age affects muscle strength. They will also learn about the importance of nutrition for muscle growth, muscle power vs strength, and the role of mitochondria and myoglobin in exercise.

In this lesson, students will learn the importance of using anatomical terminology in sports and exercise, including the anatomical position, planes of movement, and terms of direction. They will also explore how to apply anatomical terminology to understand human movement and athletic performance.

In this lesson, students will study the calculation of energy expenditure, including the importance of basal metabolic rate (BMR), total energy expenditure (TEE), and energy cost. They will also learn about indirect calorimetry and how to calculate energy expenditure using the Schofield equation.

In this lesson, students will learn about the different types of athletes, including strength athletes, sprinters, power sports athletes, endurance athletes, and team sports athletes. They will also explore the importance of nutrition for optimizing performance and the sports nutrition pyramid.

In this final lesson, students will explore the physiological effects of aging on the human body, including changes in cardiovascular function, lung volumes, muscle development, and body composition. They will also learn about the importance of nutrition and exercise in mitigating the effects of aging.
