E220 | 6543 | Staff


CLASS MEETS:
Two 50 minute periods per week

COURSE OBJECTIVE:
This course has been designed with the needs of (mainly) the self-coached
endurance athlete in mind.  Nearly all of the information presented will be
of an
applied nature, meaning the student should be able to take principles and
ideas
presented in the class and apply them to their own (or other's) training.
The
course is not intended to be a rigorous, in- depth, or overly scientific
analysis of
exercise physiology.  Students are highly encouraged to participate in class
discussions and indicate specific areas of interest.
