Description of module content:

In this module you will explore and analyse the aerobic and anaerobic capacities of the human in terms of measured physiological responses to exercise stressors, including responses to exercise in environmental extremes. You will use a range of scientific techniques to evaluate responses to acute exercise stressors and you will learn how the human adapts when exposed to chronic exercise stressors, and how ergogenic aids can facilitate this adaptation.

Learning Outcomes for module:

Upon completion of this module you will be able to
LO1: Contrast and evaluate the acute and chronic effects of differing exercise modalities on skeletal muscle metabolism, the respiratory system and the pulmonary system.
LO2: Demonstrate knowledge of the mechanisms involved in the blood lactate response to exercise.
LO3: Accurately assess the primary physiological mechanisms by which ergogenic aids exert their effects on exercise performance.
LO4: Describe the physiological responses to exercise in extreme environments, including exercise in the heat, cold and at altitude.
LO5: Demonstrate knowledge of exercise-related physiological measurements.
