Skip to 0 minutes and 7 seconds LUCY HALE: Hello and welcome to The Science of Endurance Training and Performance. My name’s Lucy Hale. I’m a member of staff in the School of Sport and Exercise Sciences and I’m a member of the research group, the Endurance Research Group, at the University of Kent. Here I have my colleague, Dr. Glen Davison who is the coordinator of the Endurance Research Group at Kent.
Skip to 0 minutes and 29 seconds GLEN DAVISON: The Endurance Research Group in the School of Sport and Exercise Sciences is a world leading group of scientists and expert academics in the field of endurance performance and training. We cover many areas of endurance and conduct cutting edge research aiming to understand and improve endurance performance and training. We, in this course, are going to present some of our latest cutting edge research and share with you some of the insights that we have developed in the area of endurance performance, which we know will be of benefit to you in enhancing your performance and training.
Skip to 1 minute and 7 seconds LUCY HALE: Over the next six weeks you’re going to be covering topics such as psychology, nutrition, training, injury and prevention, pain and fatigue, and also respiratory issues in athletes. On each topic we’re not only going to be looking at techniques and recommendations surrounding the area of examination, but we’re also going to be looking at the science behind endurance performance. So we hope that you’ll understand a little bit more about what the cutting edge research is saying rather than some of the myths that surround some of these areas.
Skip to 1 minute and 40 seconds GLEN DAVISON: So come and join us on this course. Whether you’re a beginner, a recreational athlete, or a seasoned professional, there’s something that can help you enhance your training and performance in this course.
