Possible changes to your unit's learning activities and assessment items
As a result of the Australian Government's directives requiring physical distancing and restrictions on movement because of the COVID-19 pandemic, you may find that learning activities and/or assessment items in some units you are studying have changed. These changes will not be updated in the published Unit Outline but will be communicated to you via your unit’s UCLearn(Canvas) teaching site. The new learning activities and/or assessment items will continue to meet the unit's learning outcomes, as described in the Unit Outline.
New learning activities and/or assessment items are available on your unit's UCLearn(Canvas) teaching site. Please contact your Unit Convener with any questions.

This unit builds upon the knowledge gained in Physiology of Exercise 1, focusing on the assessment, training and adaptations to endurance, strength power and intermittent based activities. Exercise in different environments (heat, altitude), and strategies to enhance elite sports performance including recovery and ergogenic aids is discussed. Occupational physiology and how fatigue influences sporting and occupational tasks is covered through research-led teaching. Topics will be covered with reference to both humans and animal research, with applied human sporting examples.
On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:
1. Evaluate the physiological factors that influence adaptation to exercise training and sporting performance;
2. Compare examples from a variety of different sports and in different populations to illustrate the role of physiological factors in exercise and sporting performance; and
3. Select, administer and apply the appropriate physiological testing procedures currently available to measure a range of physiological parameters relating to exercise and sport performance.
Two 1 hour lectures and one 2 hour practical on campus per week.
