Timetables
Description of module content:

This module will provide an overview of the structure and function of human body systems and their response to exercise. The module will cover the cardiovascular, respiratory, endocrine, and nervous systems as well as skeletal muscle and bioenergetics. The acute and chronic effects of exercise on each of these systems will be discussed with specific focus on: cardiovascular performance, exercise training and physiological and structural adaptations; control and regulation of respiration at rest and during exercise, and adaptations to training; and skeletal muscle innervation, excitation-contraction coupling, and adaptations to training. Anatomical and physiological differences between the genders and in their response to exercise will be discussed. Also, the physiology of team sports, the principles of training and ways to assess human performance will be covered.

Learning Outcomes for module:

Upon completion of this module you will be able to

LO1: Describe the principle changes that take place in the cardiovascular and respiratory systems during exercise and following a period of endurance training.

LO2: Differentiate between the acute and chronic effects of different exercise modalities on skeletal muscle.

LO3: Distinguish between different test protocols use to assess aerobic fitness and advantages/disadvantages of predicting VO2max from these protocols and different modes of exercise.

LO4: Identify the differences in physiological responses to exercise and training between sexes.

LO5: Report findings from force and power data collected under laboratory conditions.

LO6: Examine the physiological responses to exercise in hot and cold environments and how body fluid balance is maintained.
