ADVANCED EXERCISE PHYSIOLOGY

EXS3AEP

2021

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

In this subject you will investigate the influence of individual variation, environmental stress, nutritional supplementation and ergogenic aids on exercise training, performance and recovery. You will evaluate normal and abnormal, acute and chronic responses to exercise, with reference to individual determinants of the participant and environmental stress. In addition, you will evaluate nutritional interventions and ergogenic aids to enhance physiological adaptation, exercise capacity and performance.

Graduate Capabilities

Intended Learning Outcomes

01. Assess acute and chronic physiological responses to exercise to determine normal and abnormal patterns of responses.
02. Evaluate the effects of environmental stress on exercise performance and adaptations to exercise training.
03. Critically evaluate the use of nutritional interventions and ergogenic aids with reference to safety, physiological adaptations to training and exercise performance.
04. Evaluate the physiological principles and biochemical pathways related to energy metabolism, muscle fatigue and soreness.
05. Evaluate the emerging influence of gene expression on exercise science.
06. Analyse the specific physiological adaptations to a variety of exercise training modalities.
07. Apply appropriate measurement techniques in exercise physiology to evaluate a research question.
