Sport and fitness have become more and more important over the past years. Whereas being a student fifteen years ago meant living on a diet of beer and pizza, nowadays students visit the gym after lectures. Shaping your body and keeping it healthy and fit is the new mantra.

But what if you have an injury? How do you recover? Or what should you eat in order to optimise your performance in the gym? What happens to your muscles while training? And what is the relationship between exercise and self-image?

In this lecture series, we will explore these and other questions.
