Credit points: 15

Subject outline

In this subject you will investigate the normal range of physiological responses (including energy metabolism) to exercise and training across the lifespan, under different environmental conditions and with the use of various nutritional and ergogenic aids. Particular attention will be given to the responses and adaptations of the cardiovascular, respiratory, musculoskeletal, nervous, endocrine and immune systems to exercise, their integration and regulation. This subject will also explore exercise testing protocols and strategies along with developing critical thinking and report writing skills.
