Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
This module will be taught through a series of online and face-to-face lectures and tutorials to increase specific knowledge based on relevant testing procedures and appropriate training prescriptions. Laboratory based practical work is initially used in the module to develop confidence and experience in using tests before the students employ these procedures in the research project which is formally assessed (LO1,2,4). The lecture and tutorial sessions are used to provide information and background theory on the physiology and the tests involved in assessing fitness and health (LO1,3). Tutorial sessions are also used to develop analytical skills as data from the practical work is used to demonstrate appropriate scientific handling techniques. Sessions on how to source review and critique, appropriate literature for use in the project report are also carried out within tutorials. The practical written report of the research project assesses the student’s ability to apply learned theory to practical situations (LO1,2,3,4).

Formative Assessment
Feedback on content and quality of presentations is given which is designed to inform the student work for the final ‘Summative assessment’ report in week 13.

Summative Assessment
Students are asked to produce a poster presentation of the needs analysis for an athlete in week 7. Feedback on content and quality of presentations is given which is designed to inform the student work for the final report in week 13.

Description of module content:

Fitness: models and the concept of total fitness; specificity of fitness/training; physiological and psychological aspects of fitness. Endurance: aerobic endurance; energy systems; training systems; concepts and testing of maximum oxygen uptake and lactate threshold; MST; factors effecting maximal aerobic and anaerobic capacity; fatigue. Types of strength training: isometrics, isokinetics, eccentric & plyometrics. Principles of test construction; reliability and validity; criterion and norm referenced tests. Fitness assessment: tests of aerobic and anaerobic endurance, strength, power, speed, flexibility, agility and body composition. Use of field based protocols; training programme prescription; overtraining; ergogenic aids.

Learning Outcomes for module:

LO1: Contrast the components of fitness in a health, exercise and sports context.
LO2: Determine the effects of training on specific components of fitness
LO3: Evaluate the components of fitness using a range of field and laboratory based techniques
LO4: Choose and execute individual training programmes for improving health and fitness
