This subject examines the interactions between the bioenergetic, metabolic, neurological, cardiovascular and respiratory responses to acute and chronic bouts of exercise. With a focus on energy system development, muscle contraction and the integrated physiological responses to exercise, this subject supports the development of competencies in the assessment of physiology in a human movement context. Furthermore, this subject develops laboratory skill sets related to industry-relevant professional practices, as well as critical thinking and analytical skills related to the physiological responses to exercise.
