This CPD course will give you an overview of muscle physiology. By the end of the course you will be able to understand the structure of skeletal muscle; understand the process of the proposed sliding filament theory, the structure of a sarcomere and why calcium is vital in skeletal muscle contraction; understand the types of adaptations that can occur in skeletal muscle due to chronic exercise; and understand the responses that can occur to skeletal muscle due to acute exercise.
At the end of the course you will receive access to a certificate which you can download and print as evidence of your CPD.
