The design and application of training programmes requires an understanding of the principles of Strength and Conditioning to optimise the response in relation to human health and athletic performance
this course examines both the neuromuscular system and cardiorespiratory systems in order to build a comprehensive understanding of the capacity and limitations related to exercise performance in humans;
this core knowledge prepares you for more advanced study of sports and health sciences;
you will participate in the applied practice of fitness testing and assessment, which will build essential laboratory and data analysis skills of importance for employability in the area of sports and health
|Session||First Sub Session||Credit Points||15 credits (7.5 ECTS credits)|
This course is designed to explore the application of exercise science to establish the training principles for elite sports performance and acute and chronic exercise response. Based on the fundamental aspects of neuromuscular physiology and cardiorespiratory function, the principles of training related to strength and conditioning will be introduced. Research methodology and data analysis will be examined throughout the course. By the end of this course students will have a broad understanding of the major factors underpinning strength and conditioning.
Information on contact teaching time is available from the course guide.
