Description

Exposure to heat, cold, or some new environment can provoke physiological or biochemical changes that allow you to better tolerate the new environment. This course will discuss the effects training in hot and cold environments can have on the body. You will study the factors that hinder body cooling while in the heat as well as the factors that compromise the body’s adaptation to the cold. You will also learn the effects that training at high altitude can have on the body.

Sudden, traumatic, or acute injuries to the musculoskeletal tissue quickly result in inflammation. This fitness course will discuss the characteristics of a musculoskeletal tissue injury and teach you the best practices in treating strains, sprains, muscle cramps, and fractures. You will study how anabolic steroids work, and how they alter metabolism and promote the development of muscle. The course will also cover the effects of performance-enhancing substances and the beneficial and adverse effects linked to them.

Training in challenging environments can often lead to the development of an injury or serious medical condition. It is therefore not only crucial to train with the right gear and clothing but with the right knowledge too. This course will teach you the necessary steps that must be taken to remain safe while training in an extreme environment. This knowledge might well save you from serious injury some day. So, check out the course today, and take a few hours from your week to invest in your future health.
