AU: 3.0
Programme: SSM(NIE)

A lecture/demonstration laboratory course is designed as a foundation course for the study of exercise physiology. Emphasis will be placed on; the energy systems that fuel muscular work, muscle fiber types, aerobic and anaerobic performance and training adaptations, blood lactate after exercise and maximal oxygen uptake. The importance of proper fluid management and aspects of thermoregulation during exercise in the local tropical environment will also be emphasised.
