In module 2 you will learn about the process of the prosed Sliding Filament theory. You will look at the structure and function of a Sarcomere and explore why calcium is vital in skeletal muscle contraction.

In module 3 you will develop your awareness of type of adaptations that can occur to skeletal muscle due to chronic exercise. You will also develop a greater understanding of hypertrophy, hyperplasia, mitochondria, myoglobin, lactate and muscle and tendon strength.

In module 4 you will develop your awareness of types of responses that can occur to skeletal muscle due to acute exercise. You will develop a greater understanding of the following adaptions: blood supply, the temperature of the muscle, pliability, lactate and micro tears.
