This module advances knowledge and practical skills developed in previous exercise physiology modules. Students will explore the impact of extreme environments (e.g. heat, cold, and altitude) on the physiological responses to exercise and critically evaluate strategies to aid performance. The module will equip students with the theoretical knowledge and practical skills that are required to support athletes preparing for competition in extreme conditions.
This is an SCQF Level 10 module and upon successful completion, participants will be awarded 10 credits.
This module will last for 6 weeks. A timetable will be published in advance of course commencement.
This module will be delivered by Laura Forrest.
