Advanced Exercise Physiology
|Course code SPOR3050||Units 10||Level 3000||Faculty of Science and Information TechnologySchool of Environmental and Life Sciences|
This course covers advanced topics in exercise science such as thermoregulation, exercise at altitude, muscle damage and recovery genetics, sport-science specific training, ergogenic aids and fatigue and molecular adaptations to exercise training. Students also explore the findings and implications of current research in Exercise Physiology.
In order to participate in this course, students must complete a compulsory Health and Safety requirement. Students will receive full information on this Compulsory Course Component in the course outline provided by the School.

|Objectives||1. Understand strategies used to monitor training loads and physiological responses to overtraining and detraining; |
2. Describe the physiological principles and biochemical pathways related to muscle fatigue and soreness during and after exercise;
3 Be able to differentiate and explain the normal and abnormal responses to exercise and why they occur;
4. Understand and describe the specific physiological adaptations to a variety of exercise training modalities;
5. Understand and describe the physiological mechanism related to thermoregulation and fluid homeostasis during exercise in either hot or cold exposure;
6. Develop a fundamental understanding of the emerging field of genetics on Exercise Physiology.
