Unit description

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, and skill acquisition) to match intended training goals in sports science, training, and coaching contexts.

Unit content

  1. Acute responses and chronic training adaptations for performance
  2. Effects of fatigue on recovery, adaptation and performance
  3. Population related differences in training adaptations and performance
  4. Novel techniques in training and their influence on physiological adaptation and performance
  5. Applied sports training and coaching in action
  6. Student led training plans

Learning outcomes

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:
1evaluate and reflect upon the scientific literature concerning best practices for training adaptations in developing a training plan
2examine and apply considerations in training for performance related to acute/chronic adaptations, fatigue, population differences, and novel training methodologies
3design, prepare, and present a scientifically sound training plan that considers all aspects of performance

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

Teaching and assessment

Notice

Intensive offerings may or may not be scheduled in every teaching period. Please refer to the timetable for further details.
