This course will provide students with an understanding of the fundamental and advanced scientific principles and practices of muscle physiology during strength training and conditioning for sport and exercise performance. The course will assist students to develop knowledge and skills relevant to the design of suitable programs, based on best practice, for use in teaching strength training and conditioning. The course will not only provide information relevant to a general healthy population, especially those involved in sport and physical activity, but to individuals and groups across a range of populations. The use of strength training and conditioning in the development of periodisation programs to optimise sport and exercise areas. Current research and the relationship to other discipline areas will be outlined.
This course contains a mandatory residential school at the Ipswich campus for external students and mandatory on-campus laboratories or practical classes for on-campus students.
