Content

This unit examines the physiological responses to acute and chronic exercise, with emphasis on the muscular, metabolic and oxygen transport systems. Scenarios where these systems limit exercise performance are covered using examples such as, exercise in the heat, dehydration, carbohydrate depletion and neuromuscular fatigue. Laboratory classes introduce students to the skills and techniques used to assess performance and the physiological responses to exercise.

Assessment
