Learning Objectives

The aim of the course is to provide students with a good understanding of the Biochemistry of nutrition and energy needs in different sports.

Program

  • Substrates and metabolic pathways used in the different types of exercise.
  • Muscle energy metabolism during short high intensity exercises, phosphocreatine and creatine kinase, creatine kinase isoenzymes, creatine kinase regulation, regulation of ATP synthesis by glycogen metabolism, regulation of ATP synthesis by oxidative phosphorylation metabolism, myokinase, nucleotide catabolism adenyls in exercise, intracellular energy charge, type I and II fiber responses, causes of fatigue in short high-intensity exercises, resynthesis of phosphocreatine.
  • Intense physical exercise of few minutes. Main energy substrates used in intense exercises lasting a few minutes, causes of fatigue in intense exercises lasting a few minutes, intracellular pH and lactate, post-exercise recovery, cool-down, Cori cycle, pyruvate transamination, intracellular buffers
  • Endurance physical exercise. Main energy substrates used in endurance exercise, aerobic power, energy metabolism in endurance activities, integration of the use of energy substrates, onset of fatigue in endurance activities.
  • Team sports. Physiological and metabolic responses of repeated sprinting activities. Main energy substrates used in team sports, influence of sprint duration and interval on the use of energy substrates, onset of fatigue in team sports.
  • Biochemical adaptations induced by training in the various types of physical exercise.
  • Effects of nutritional status in different types of physical exercise
  • Main supplements used in the different types of physical exercise

Learning Achievements (Dublin Descriptors)

Students will be able to understand and rework what they studied and will gradually acquire the ability to improve and deepen their knowledge. They also must be able to transform the knowledge into innovative and original proposals.

Students will acquire an autonomous judgment, a deep critical thinking and maturity to allow it to discriminate between proper nutrition and dietary regimes that are harmful to health

Students will attain the ability to put what they have learned into practice and be able to transfer to other speakers, in a clear and complete manner, the knowledge gained in both amateur and professional field.

Teaching Material

The teaching material prepared by the lecturer in addition to recommended textbooks (such as for instance slides, lecture notes, exercises, bibliography) and communications from the lecturer specific to the course can be found inside the Moodle platform › blended.uniurb.it

Supporting Activities

none

All materials used during the course is availabe on Moodle platform from the web site of the university


Teaching, Attendance, Course Books and Assessment

Teaching

Frontal lesson

Innovative teaching methods

Discussion on specific topics will be proposed that can be carried out individually and in groups during the course. Students will have scientific publications, seminars and presentations at national and international conferences available on the University's Moodle platform. This material will be used to develop short presentations also through using the practice of the "flipped lesson" and "debate".

Attendance

Course books

-The Biochemical Basis of Sports Performance. Second Edition.

Ronald J Maughan and Michael Gleeson

OXFORD University press

-Biochimica per le scienze motorie.

Curatore: Antonio Di Giulio, Amelia Fiorilli, Claudio Stefanelli

Editore: CEA

-Slides and other teaching materials are available on the moodle platform

Assessment

Oral examination consisting of an discussion aimed at verifying the adequacy of knowledge and skills on the biochemistry of nutrition and nutritional needs in different sports

Disability and Specific Learning Disorders (SLD)

Students who have registered their disability certification or SLD certification with the Inclusion and Right to Study Office can request to use conceptual maps (for keywords) during exams.

To this end, it is necessary to send the maps, two weeks before the exam date, to the course instructor, who will verify their compliance with the university guidelines and may request modifications.
