Unit Code: PHE701

Unit Name: Applied Sports Physiology

Description: The course is an extension of PHE502 - Sports Physiology 1 and will explore the areas of application on basic concepts of physiology ranging from cardio - pulmonary function to fuel movement during various sports activities. Many examples will be given to consolidate knowledge gained in the application of physiological principles to enhance sports performance and injury prevention. The course will also deal with the effects of climatic conditions on exercise and the body systems.

Learning Target Outcomes: On successful completion of this course, students will be able to: 1.2.1 Use the underlying physiological issues for the selection of sports by individuals of different age groups 1.2.2 Demonstrate an understanding on the effect of exercise on different body parts and systems 1.2.3 Analyse the effects of exercise on body parts and recommend appropriate dosage/intensity of exercise to individuals 1.2.4 Demonstrate, following physiological mechanisms associated with sports performance: Cardio – pulmonary adaptation, adaptation to stress and bone remodeling 1.2.5 Analyse the metabolic demand of various sports exercise and activity and Impact of climate change on sports performance.
