This subject will build upon and provide an integrative understanding of the physiological and biochemical responses that occur during exercise. Initially a systems approach will be adopted, followed by increasing attention upon the integration and regulation of the exercise response. Particular attention will be given to the physiological responses to isometric, dynamic exercise and control of ventilation at rest and during exercise.

1. Describe the function, regulation and interaction of physiological systems and biochemical responses to acute and chronic exercise.
2. Analyse and critically evaluate current issues in physiology and biochemistry of exercise using effective problem solving and research strategies.
3. Plan and perform physiological and biochemical measurements using a range of ergometers in a safe and ethical manner.
4. Compare and contrast physiological and biochemical data obtained during acute exercise between time-points, individuals and populations.
5. Identify and apply pre-assessment procedures and medical history evaluations conducted prior to undertaking an exercise program.
6. Identify and describe the limitations, contraindications and considerations that may require the modification of assessments and make appropriate adjustments for relevant populations or clients.
There are no co-requisites.
Assumed knowledge is the minimum level of knowledge of a subject area that students are assumed to have acquired through previous study. It is the responsibility of students to ensure they meet the assumed knowledge expectations of the subject. Students who do not possess this prior knowledge are strongly recommended against enrolling and do so at their own risk. No concessions will be made for students’ lack of prior knowledge.
