This course will build on the foundational understanding and practical application of clinical exercise physiology concepts in relation to; physiological responses and adaptations of the cardiovascular, skeletal and metabolic systems. The relationship between exercise and varying environments is examined – e.g. posture, hyperbaric chambers, microgravity, altitude, and occlusion. Skills and techniques used to monitor and analyse acute and chronic adaptations to exercise will be refined throughout this course. The underlying mechanisms through which these adaptations are induced will also be explored. In this course, students will have hands-on experience in carrying out a range of laboratory-based experiments.   

This course is restricted to students enrolled in the Bachelor of Exercise Physiology 3871.
