Applied Exercise Physiology

Applied exercise physiology research involves solidifying the link between the study of human physiology and its application to sport and exercise. Our research within this area has a wide range of applications including investigating post-exercise recovery methods, hydration status in team sport athletes, quantification of physiological training loads during team sports, and validation of new sport science equipment and/or methods. Implications of our research into applied exercise physiology delivers real world applications to optimise athletic performance via delivering critical information to inform training practices, testing procedures and/or recovery modalities.
