Examines considerations for, and responses and adaptations to, training for performance. Students will critically reflect upon the scientific literature underpinning training related responses, adaptation, and coaching principles. Students will expand knowledge and skills to develop appropriate multifaceted training interventions (integrating exercise physiology, biomechanics, strength and conditioning, motor control and skill acquisition) to match intended training goals in sports science, training, and coaching contexts.
- Acute responses and chronic training adaptations for performance
- Effects of fatigue on recovery, adaptation and performance
- Population related (gender, chronological age, training age, social and physical environmental background etc) differences in training adaptations and performance
- Novel techniques in training and their influence on physiological and physical adaptation and performance
- Applied sports training and coaching in action
- Student led training plans
Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.
|On completion of this unit, students should be able to:|
|1||evaluate and reflect upon the scientific literature concerning best practices for training adaptations in developing a training plan|
|2||examine and apply considerations in training for performance related to acute/chronic adaptations, fatigue, population differences, and novel training methodologies|
|3||design, prepare, and present a scientifically sound training plan that considers all aspects of performance|
On completion of this unit, students should be able to:

- examine and apply considerations in training for performance related to acute/chronic adaptations, fatigue, population differences, and novel training methodologies
