EXHS 330 Biochemistry of Exercise and Nutrition (4)

In this course students will participate in group discussions and work collaboratively to understand the components of macronutrient metabolism (carbohydrates, lipids, amino acids) and the regulatory mechanisms that control metabolic pathways. The study of the relationship between metabolism and fuel availability for different types of exercise will lead to learning about training adaptations and the role of nutrition in athletic performance. Finally, students will examine the role supplements and drugs can play in exercise performance by examining the biochemical mechanisms of action.
