High-return exercise is discussed, including what it means to be smart about energy investment. Macronutrients, energy systems, nutrition timing and training of the mind are looked at in detail as they relate to optimizing training and recovery while minimizing the negative effects of exercise.

Students will determine whether they are training for endurance or strength and will be guided in developing an elite level training and nutrition plan based on their specific goals.
