UG Coursework Unit
Examines the physiological responses of the body to various exercise stresses and the adaptations which occur within the body as a result of repeated exposure to these stresses.
- Introduction to Exercise physiology, acute and chronic responses | Exercise – adaptations for health | Skeletal muscle function
- Circulatory and respiratory responses to exercise
- Bioenergetics and exercise metabolism | Body composition
- Cardio-respiratory fitness – the mechanisms of adaptation
- Anaerobic power | Muscular strength | Fatigue
- Environmental physiology and performance aids
Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.
|On completion of this unit, students should be able to:|
|1||demonstrate an understanding of the general physiological responses of the body to acute and chronic exercise|
|2||demonstrate safe and effective health and exercise assessment|
|3||apply knowledge of physiology to exercise testing, prescription and delivery|
On completion of this unit, students should be able to:
- demonstrate an understanding of the general physiological responses of the body to acute and chronic exercise
- demonstrate safe and effective health and exercise assessment
- apply knowledge of physiology to exercise testing, prescription and delivery
