In this unit students apply their knowledge to demonstrate an understanding of the acute physiological responses to exercise, as well as the chronic physiological responses to exercise training. The unit examines: the calculation of work, power and energy expenditure; the metabolic supply of energy during exercise; and the physiological responses of the cardiovascular, respiratory, neuromuscular and endocrine systems to exercise. Students are introduced to practical aspects of exercise physiology through experiments and procedures in the exercise physiology laboratory. This unit is taught from a theoretical, practical and applied perspective to enhance students' understanding of exercise physiology principles.
On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:
