This course is designed to develop each student’s knowledge and skills in relation to the theory and practice of exercise physiology. The lecture sessions will cover, in detail, the energy systems as they underpin health and performance. The laboratory sessions will provide students with the knowledge, time and opportunity to develop hands-on practical skills for fitness assessments both in the field and laboratory – essential for every exercise physiologist. In addition students will gain experience and skills in reading and critiquing research papers, analysing data using statistics as well as writing research papers.
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.
