This webinar will focus on two key areas of interest: the fundamental concepts of physiological preparation for sport competition and the leading concepts in psychophysiology research and practice. Essential physiology concepts to be discussed will be, for example, energy expenditure, aerobic and anaerobic metabolism, periodization, overload and recovery, burnout and the female athlete triad. From a psychophysiological perspective, the discussion will focus on the human nervous system, impact of stress on performance, neuropsychology of performance and a brief introduction to biofeedback training.

Learning Objectives
Following the webinar, attendees will be able to:

  • Demonstrate a basic understanding of several physiological bases of sport performance, including energy expenditure, fitness and principles of training, burnout, and the female athlete triad;
  • Identify indicators of the stress response and understand the impact of stress on performance;
  • Demonstrate a basic understanding of neuropsychology theories and principles related to performance, including human performance theory, flow, choking, and EEG;
  • Describe and implement steps to a biofeedback intervention
