HIGH PERFORMANCE TRAINING FOR SPORT
Credit points: 15
This subject provides you with advanced knowledge in exercise physiology to inform the prescription of training, ergogenic practices and athlete monitoring within high-performance sport. You will use authentic training case studies to highlight the important role of physiological knowledge in applied sport. Practical classes will allow you to apply knowledge and develop a range of skills needed to undertake advanced physiological testing and provide scientific support in high-performance sports. Using an evidence-based approach, you will demonstrate an ability to prescribe and deliver training programs for both individuals and teams, based on best-practice principles.
