    Each client and athlete can benefit from a customized diet tailored to the frequency, intensity, duration, and specificity of their training and demands of the sport or activity. With NSCA’s Guide to Sport and Exercise Nutrition, Second Edition Online CE Course, you will get an in-depth understanding of how food and sport supplements can enhance exercise and sport performance for optimal training, competition, and recovery.

    This course brings several contemporary sport nutrition issues to the forefront, including recent developments in relative energy deficiency in sport (RED-S), research related to carbohydrate mouth rinsing, the role of popular dietary supplements, preworkout supplements, and the use of protein and amino acids in improving aerobic endurance, strength, and power. Examine the topic of energy balance and the implications of undereating and overeating. Learn to use popular software and smartphone apps to assess nutrition status. Understand what macronutrients are and how they are metabolized, stored, and oxidized for energy. Use science-based recommendations for using macronutrients, micronutrients, and hydration to improve aerobic, anaerobic, and strength-based performance. Finally, use cutting-edge findings on nutrient timing based on the type, intensity, and duration of activity to help you understand how to recommend the correct nutrients at the ideal time to achieve optimal performance results.

    The study guide includes learning activities, along with an answer key, to help you prepare for the course exam (composed of 100 multiple-choice questions).

    Once you complete the course and pass the exam, you can print a certificate for continuing education credits.
