Further information on descriptions Description: Aims:
To introduce the physiological adaptations that occur as a result of regular exercise and to understand how these adaptations may improve health, fitness and performance.

Learning Outcomes:
On successful completion of this unit students should be able to:
* Demonstrate an understanding of how the body adapts to exercise and appreciate the specificity of training.
* Demonstrate an understanding of the appropriate techniques that are available for the investigation of changes that occur with regular training.
* Demonstrate an understanding of and be able to determine oxygen uptake, energy expenditure during exercise, mechanical efficiency, and peak power in a laboratory environment.
* Demonstrate an understanding of the physiological factors that limit performance across a range of different types of exercise.
