This course will provide students with an understanding of the effects of acute and chronic exercise on the physiological systems. This will enable students to evaluate, improve and maintain the health and fitness, well-being and performance of an individual The course will prepare students who want to work as an exercise scientist or clinical exercise physiologists, or who want to advance to further study in sport and exercise.
The course will build upon the knowledge developed from previous courses in human anatomy and physiology and will apply those principles in studying how the physiological systems respond to acute and chronic stressors in sport and exercise. The knowledge obtained will be applied to evaluate, improve and maintain health, fitness and sports performance. Practical and technical skills, and skills in reading, reporting and evaluating research in sport and exercise physiology will be gained.
This course contains a mandatory residential school for external students at the Ipswich Campus and mandatory on-campus laboratories or practical classes for on-campus students.
Course learning outcomes
On successful completion of this course students should be able to:
- Describe the function, regulation and interaction of physiological systems relating to exercise.
- Describe the individual and integrated physiological responses and adaptations to acute and chronic exercise under normal conditions, in different environments, and by external influences (e.g. ergogenic aids or technologies).
- Apply and evaluate knowledge of the physiological responses and adaptations to acute and chronic sport and exercise to provide a justification for the delivery of exercise programs to improve and maintain health, fitness and sports performance.
- Analyse and interpret physiological data obtained during acute exercise, and compare such data between time points, individuals and populations.

Student workload expectations
To do well in this subject, students are expected to commit approximately 10 hours per week including class contact hours, independent study, and all assessment tasks. If you are undertaking additional activities, which may include placements and residential schools, the weekly workload hours may vary.
