Aims

The aim of this module is to provide students with the knowledge of the biochemistry that underpins sport, exercise and nutrition. The module aims to deepen your knowledge of the important roles enzymes, hormones and chemical reactions play in the regulation of metabolism and considers multiple metabolic and biochemical pathways involved in the process of energy turnover and storage, metabolic signals/pathways involved in adaptation, and the interaction of macro/micro nutrients with these systems.

Outline Of Syllabus

The syllabus will cover the following topics:

• The metabolism of carbohydrate, fat and protein
• Cellular respiration and the metabolic pathways activated at rest and during exercise
• Enzyme function and hormonal coordination of anabolic and catabolic processes for the control of energy turnover.
• Bioenergetics of high intensity and endurance exercise
