Exercise Physiology

 

Exercise physiology is the study of the acute responses and chronic adaptations to a wide range of physical exercise conditions. It is important for coaches, parents and athletes to have a basic understanding of the physiological responses to training and of the biological development of the young athlete as this knowledge should be implemented to maximize the child's potential. Again, before utilising any of the resources below, it is vital for swimmers to discuss their individual requirements with their coach and if required, an accredited exercise physiologist.
