Role of macro and micro nutrients
Protein metabolism and supplementation
Use of ergogenic aids e.g. creatine / biocarbonates etc
Pharmacology, Steroids, Hormones, stimulants, blood doping

In order that the students comprehend the fundamental concepts, and gain an appropriate knowledge base, topics will be introduced by the module tutor through lectures. Further understanding of this material will be developed through seminars and laboratory sessions. Students will be expected to prepare material relevant to specific topic areas, which will form the basis of these seminars. Additional support will be provided in the form of directed reading and tutorials. Practical work will allow for demonstration of application of principles.
Teaching hours will consist of 24 hours delivered over 2 weekends and 120 hours of independent study, reading, project work and evaluations. Tutors will provide ongoing support and guidance trhoughout this process. University of Bolton facilities will also be made available to students between weekend delivery courses by arrangement with the programme manager.
