Acute and chronic responses to exercise, including limitations within and between individuals, effects of different types of exercise and environments, effects on health, and methods of analysing responses, limitations and effects.
This paper describes the acute and adaptive physiological responses to exercise in various contexts (e.g. resistance and endurance exercise), for health or performance. It also covers measurement of exercise intensity and energy usage.

- Learning Outcomes
Students who successfully complete this paper should be able to:
- Explain acute physiological responses to different durations and intensities of exercise at the level of the cell, organs or tissues and the whole body
- Explain the likely physiological adaptations to different types of exercise training
- Understand the effects of personal factors (e.g. age, sex) and environmental factors (e.g. heat) on exercise performance and physiological responses
- Explain the basic principles of fitness testing and of prescribing fitness training for different forms of exercise (endurance, power, strength)
