SCL1002 - Exercise Physiology or
RBM1528 - Human Physiology 2
|1.||Understanding the health consequences of physical inactivity and sedentary behaviour to decide whether to apply client-centered exercise testing, prescription & delivery after pre-participation screening showed no identification of known, diagnosed cardiovascular, metabolic and / or renal (CMR) diseases or signs and/or symptoms suggestive of CMR diseases that might necessitate potential referral to a health care provider for further testing, thereby reducing potential barriers to the adoption of PA, prior to initiation of an exercise program;|
|2.||Devise appropriate exercise interventions that consider clients' current level of physical activity, goals, physical activity preferences, needs, barriers and motives for physical activity;|
|3.||Select and conduct exercise assessment methods and procedures that are appropriate to clients' needs, goals and behaviours and being able to modify the exercise prescription based on clients' adverse physiological responses, and signs and symptoms suggestive of CMR disease during physical exertion;|
|4.||Select and apply safe, client-centred exercise limits, including appropriate and effective intensity ranges for physical activity and exercise; and,|
|5.||Design, compose and implement sound and sensible exercise and physical activity interventions that consider basic training principles and address the basic principles of exercise program design and basic elements of exercise prescription i.e. mode, intensity, duration, frequency, volume, pattern and progression of exercise.|
