Applied Anatomy and Physiology Exercise Physiology

Tutor: Dave Carnell (see Dave’s profile at end)

Benefits of attending this course which is suitable for all levels of knowledge and experience:

  • you’ll be part of an intensive, highly professional and productive day that’s also relaxed and enjoyable
  • increased knowledge and confidence
  • hard copy and electronic materials (the latter via Drop Box)
  • focus on synoptic – (see session 2)
  • use of data (e.g. graphs, formulae, tables) in A&P and Ex Phys – suitable areas for ‘data’ style questions explored
  • powerful tips, tools, techniques and ideas: a variety of classroom-based activities and role plays to make learning interactive whilst maintaining a crucial focus on both exam technique and ‘getting through’ the dense specification
  • plenty for everyone – even if role play isn’t your thing!

Session 1: 10.00-11.30
‘Year one’ Applied Anatomy and Physiology:

  • Planes of movement: don’t break the glass to differentiate from ‘axis of rotation’
  • Movement analysis: via MC-JAPE
  • Motor neurone/units & action potentials: it’s all about the order!
  • ‘All or none law’: – why is there no such thing as a weak contraction?
  • Fibre type: structure and function exercise
  • Fibre type: recruitment: climb the ladder with PowerPoint link to activation thresholds
  • Vascular shunt mechanism: role play exercise
  • Mechanics of breathing: five steps to success
  • ‘Gaseous exchange’: it’s all about opposites!

‘Year one’ Exercise Physiology:

  • Ergogenic aids – templates for group research task – role play exercise
  • Training methods – aerobic, strength & flexibility training – role play exercise
  • Identifying activities/sports where each method is key – exemplar sports tick sheets

Coffee / discussion: 11.30-11.45

Session 2: 11.45-1.00
Synoptic – the Extended Physiological Question (A&P and Ex Phys)

  • AS 10 mark & A-Level 20-mark synoptic question analysis
  • Sample questions and mark schemes
  • Planning & preparation for student success
  • Applying the ‘Assessment Objectives’ (AO1, AO2 and AO3)
  • Link to Electronic Mark Book (sample provided) – for accurate recording, monitoring and evaluation of student progress in all aspects of the course

Lunch / discussion: 1.00-1.45

Session 3: 1.45-3.30 (with short break during session)
‘Year two’ Applied Anatomy and Physiology: Energy for exercise:

  • ATP-PC (phosphocreatine), Glycolytic & Aerobic Energy Systems: practical role play activity for each
  • The energy continuum: oral presentation activity (linked to NEA)

Environmental effects on body systems:

  • Exercise in the heat: role play exercise & PowerPoint graph exemplar for the CV drift

‘Year two’ Exercise Physiology:
Injury prevention and the rehabilitation of injury

  • acute v chronic and soft v hard tissue injuries: injury classification exercise to help differentiate
  • injury prevention: worksheet activity to identify extrinsic & intrinsic causes of injury
  • response to injuries / medical conditions in a sporting context: active learning of SALTAPS & PRICE
    • three stages of treatment: acute, sub-acute & rehabilitation
    • ‘treatment’ exercise – evaluation & treatment of injuries


• has been teaching OCR A Level PE for over 25 years
• he is subject leader for PE at a King Edward VI SFC in Stourbridge – annually a ‘top 6 college’ nationally
• he is a well established author and very popular and experienced INSET tutor, known for his practical approaches to teaching and learning in A&P and Exercise Physiology
