Introductory knowledge of human functional anatomy and physiology
Assignment(s), Practical work, Project, Test(s)
In this topic students will learn the theoretical and practical principles of conditioning and resistance training practices in high performance sport. Principles of program design, periodization, age appropriate training practices, and safety protocols will be covered. Furthermore, students will also complete a series of practical workshops, designed to teach technical principles of Australian strength and conditioning resistance training lifts. Students will also gain specialist knowledge on sports-specific injury prevention and monitoring practices.
The aim of this topic is to explore the principles and practice of exercise prescription and the related neuromuscular, skeletal cardiovascular and pulmonary adaptations by exploring the following:
Design of best practice exercise programs that target strength, strength endurance, muscular power, aerobic and anaerobic endurance, and anaerobic capacity
Acute and chronic effects of exercise on the function and structure of the neuromuscular, skeletal, cardiovascular and pulmonary systems
Age-appropriate exercise training programs
Mechanisms underlying peripheral and central training fatigue
Acute and chronic signs of over-training syndrome
Neuromuscular, skeletal, pulmonary, and cardiovascular training-related adaptations
Training principles and coaching theory
Resistance training ethics and movement competency.
Expected learning outcomes
On completion of this topic, students will be expected to be able to:
Design of exercise programs that target strength, strength endurance, muscular power, aerobic and anaerobic endurance, and anaerobic capacity
Describe the acute and chronic adaptations of exercise on the function and structure of the neuromuscular, skeletal, cardiovascular and pulmonary systems
Design and communicate age-appropriate exercise training programs
Discuss and identify the mechanisms underlying peripheral and central training fatigue
Design training programs in accordance with the principles of periodization.
Organise and communicate training programs in accordance with the principles of coaching theory.
Monitor and communicate training-related adaptations
Safely administer and coach a series of resistance and conditioning exercise in accordance with Australian Strength and Conditioning Associations (ASCA) guidelines.
