Sport Physiology and Training Theory II 1113

Course Objectives

Sport Physiology and Training Theory II aims to increase students’ knowledge, understanding and reflection concerning physiological adaptation to training, and how this may be optimised in relation to each individual’s goals. Through both practical and theoretical work, and in close conjunction to the chosen specialisation sport, students will gain increased understanding of these processes. Closeness to the practical field is therefore especially important in order to be able to reflect and increase knowledge in relation to these questions.
