Exercise Physiology and Human Performance University of Tsukuba
Introduction of exercise physiology and latest findings related to human performance.
Students will learn about the physiological basis in the background of high competitive ability, and discuss the training methods and problems of athletes. Students will be able to address the physiological challenges in modern sports.
The evaluation will be made based on a brief report for each lecture and two final reports. The weighting is 50% brief report for each lecture and 50% two final reports. (1) Brief report for each lecture (50 %) Send a short report (summary of lecture, comments, questions, and your opinions) to Manaba by next lecture.
