Applied Exercise Physiology
Get the skills required for applied exercise physiology testing and research in areas such as power, aerobic capacity and neuromuscular function.
This module provides students with the theoretical and practical skills required for applied exercise physiology testing and research. Areas covered will be:
- estimating and determining of aerobic capacity
- lactate threshold and assessment of neuromuscular function
Students will also carry out a group research project.
Days on campus
Minimum one day per week - Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, or Friday (Weeks 1-5, 7-12).
Students will need to have taken the following modules:
- EP (Physiology of Sport and Exercise)
On completion of this module students will be able to:
explain and perform a range of exercise assessments commonly used by exercise physiology practitioners
critically analyse exercise assessment data and make exercise prescriptions
develop and evaluate research questions in a group environment
deal with practical problems in laboratory, field, and community health settings
Delivery and assessment
The module will be delivered using a range of approaches including face-to-face and online activities which may include:
- live lectures, webinars and workshops
- pre-recorded lectures, videos, podcasts
- other activities such as reading, quizzes, discussion boards
