Capstone in Exercise Physiology

As Human Biology students, Stanford athletes, and former Exercise Physiology TAs, Kat Klass and Alex Ostberg wanted to bridge the gap between scientific understanding and application for competitive sports. We felt that there was a lack of coherent and synthesized information about how research findings could be integrated into the lifestyles and training programs of collegiate athletes. As people who firmly believe in the scientific method, we wanted to draw evidence-based practices from a field that is often littered with pseudoscience and anecdotal evidence. To do this, we researched both well-known and obscure training techniques, and tried to distill the most applicable lessons from a variety of sources.
