part one

From the Social Cognition module, define schema and give an example. Next, describe your event-schema, or script, for an event that you encounter regularly. Now, attempt to articulate a script for an event that you have encountered only once or a few times. How are these scripts different? How confident are you in your ability to navigate these two events?

Your Tasks

Task 1- Research

First, I would like you to do some initial research related to the use of simple versus complex carbohydrates for athletic fueling and performance. Does the type of carbohydrate matter when it comes to energy production, prevention of fatigue, and etc.?

Task 2- Experiment

Next, we will act as our own test subjects! Keep in mind that you will need two separate days to do this. For this experiment you will need to do the following:

Choose a meal that is made up primarily of simple carbohydrates.

Consume this meal 3-4 hours before doing an endurance activity.

Note: the endurance activity is up to you. Examples: walking, jogging, swimming, hiking, riding a bike, using an elliptical, etc.

Write down how you are feeling prior to engaging in the endurance activity.

Perform the endurance activity.

Write down how you felt while completing the endurance activity. Did you feel that this meal helped in giving you the energy you needed?

Repeat the above steps on a different day using a meal made up primarily of complex carbs. Note any differences that you observe.

Task 3- Original Post

Please address the following in your original post:

What conclusions did you draw from the research in Task 1? Does the type of carbohydrate matter for exercise performance? Explain.

(5 points)

Share your findings from your experiment. Provide us with the following details:

What did your simple carbohydrate meal contain? What did your complex carbohydrate meal contain?

(1 point)

What differences in your energy and performance did you notice between these two meals? Did one type of meal give you more sustained energy than the other? Did this align with the conclusions from your research?

(10 points)

Task 4- Peer Response

Respond to at least 2 classmate’s posts. Were the conclusions from your research similar or different to theirs? Were you surprised with their experiment findings and/or were they similar/different to your own findings?
