Kinesiology & Nutrition III: Rest and Recovery
One-semester course. For young adults pursuing an active lifestyle, structured rest and recovery are essential to maintain physical and mental well-being. Especially during stressful times, a well-developed plan keeps students on target in their daily activities--as long as the plan integrates proven strategies for recovery.
K&N III: Rest & Recovery builds on the recommendations regarding movement and nutrition covered in Kinesiology and Nutrition I & II. In this course, students will create a weekly action plan that focuses on periods of active recovery to support their fitness and academic goals. Particular attention will be paid to sleep, nutrition, daily maintenance activities, low-impact movement, mental preparation, goal planning, injury management, and activity variety. Specific recovery movements and techniques will be recommended and practiced throughout the semester. This is an ideal course for the already active student, the student looking to increase activity levels, and for the stressed student who needs to properly manage the day-to-day challenges of a busy student life.
