Practical laboratory sessions and seminars help link key concepts of exercise physiology to practice. Undertake fitness assessments and understand the anaerobic and aerobic energy systems, as well as acute and chronic responses to exercise.
Students will gain knowledge, skills and experience in exercise physiology and testing.Key course components include:- anaerobic and aerobic energy systems and their interaction- acute and chronic response to exercise- developing skills in fitness assessment- Writing research papers- analysing data- reading and critiquing research
After completing this course, successful students will be able to: 1. Explain the energy requirements and sources of human energy production during anaerobic and aerobic exercise.2. Discuss the acute and chronic responses of the body to exercise in health and performance contexts.3. Critique and apply a variety of assessment tools for fitness testing in the field and laboratory4. Recommend appropriate training methods for supporting athletes from different populations to enhance performance.5. Analyse data collected in laboratory sessions and effectively report results.
