Catalogue data

AbstractEvidence-based findings on the training of endurance, strength, and speed, planning and periodization of training, as well as motor learning will be presented and discussed in relation to specific age groups (childhood to older age), and performance levels. The theoretical knowledge will be applied in an annual training plan for an individually chosen sport/performance level.
ObjectiveUnderstand and critically evaluate evidence-based training recommendations for specific groups (children/youth, adults, older adults, recreational/high performance sport) and apply and evaluate this knowledge within a goal-oriented training plan.
- Evidence-based research in exercise sciences
- Endurance, strength, and speed training
- Training in childhood and youth
- Training in older age
- Analysis of a specific sport, planning and periodization models
- Motor learning in sports practice

Training sessions:
- Development of a goal-oriented annual training plan for an individually chosen sport/performance level, based on evidence from the exercise sciences.

Practice in the gym:
- Practical examples for the training of strength and speed
- Motor learning experiments
