there are 8 fields of study the course is directly associated with, display
Course objectives
The student will be able to understand the physiological processes in the organism during the sporting load and then after the physical activity. The graduate is able to explain logically and materially the structural and functional changes that occur in the organism due to adaptive mechanisms in response to a specific type of regular exercise load.
Learning outcomes
Graduates of the course will be able to:
1.Describe the body's response to the load for specific groups of sports disciplines
2. Identify the mechanisms of adaptation processes
3. Analyze workload and load stress tests to determine the degree of stress and thus prevent the development of pathological fatigue.
  • Syllabus of lectures:
  • - Characteristics of sport disciplines (type of load, duration of performance, load intensity). Sports Performance Factors.
  • - Physiological principles of training.
  • - Effect of genetics on performance. determinants of sport performance.
  • - Stress response (control systems). Disturbance of homeostasis. Acidobasic equilibrium - stress acidosis. Response of the organism to different types of body load.
  • - Metabolic performance characteristics (metabolic cover, energy sources, energy supply).
  • - Functional Performance Characteristics (HR, VO2, LA, ..).
  • - Characteristics of the athlete (load test to maximum: HR max, VO2 max, Wingate test: P max, AC, fatigue index, somatic characteristics).
  • - Adaptation process. Regulation of adaptation processes. Adaptation mechanisms.
  • - Specific adaptations of the organism to the burden (speed, force, endurance, force endurance, speed-force, coordinating aesthetic, combat, sports games).
  • - Physiological differences during stress response and adaptation in relation to ontogenesis.
  • - Influence of the environment on performance (cold, heat, pressure). Acclimatization.
  • - Desecration process. Detrain.
  • - Specifics of female response (menstrual cycle, pregnancy, childbirth, puerperium).
  • Syllabus of exercises:
  • - Introduction to exercise Physiology of the load, characteristics of sport
  • - Sports performance factors
  • - Metabolic performance characteristics
  • - Performance characteristics during exercise
  • - Specific adaptations of the organism to the load
  • - Stress tests - introduction, performance characteristics of the athlete
  • - Determination of thresholds (ventilation, lactate, circulating), Conconi test
  • - Spiroergometry
  • - PWC170
  • - Selected tests of anaerobic assumptions (Jump ergometry, Wingate test)
  • - Somatic characteristics of an athlete
  • - Somatotype detection
  • - Physiological essence of training, Health risks
  • - Delivery of logs and worksheets
