This unit further expands students understanding of biochemical and molecular changes in the human system in response to various models of exercise stress. The integrated nature of the biochemical, molecular and physiological responses of different organs and systems in homeostatic responses to exercise and training will be examined. Students will also be introduced to aspects of current research literature in exercise metabolism, which are also assisting with positive clinical and general health benefits. Current research literature in the area will be analysed and human research and evaluation will be presented throughout the series of workshops. A practical component expands on basic concepts of metabolism via indirect testing methods and to expose the students to a variety of modern testing techniques.
On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:
