|Jennifer Buckley||PRE-REQS: None Description: An examination of the biomechanics and exercise physiological principles involved in training elite athletes. This three week course will explore how the science of sport is studied and applied to elite United States Olympic athletes. This course will examine the exercise physiological and biomechanical differences between untrained, trained, and elite athletes. Examination will also include exploring why all of the most accredited sports performance facilities are located in Colorado by studying the effects of exercising at high altitudes has on the human body. In addition to exploring how elite athletes train for competition, recovery techniques will be examined as well. Students will study how training principles differ between aerobic and anaerobic athletes. Students will also be required to purchase Polar Heart Rate monitors and pedometers to document their own physical effects of altitude hypoxia. Prerequisites: Consent of instructor.
