Level: Introductory-advanced

Suitable: Years 11-12

This session covers the key knowledge and skills pertaining to Unit 3 AoS 2 surrounding fatigue mechanisms and their application to sporting events. It can be used as an introduction to the content or as an advanced session to consolidate student knowledge and understanding.

Students will have the opportunity to see and assist with undertaking a lactate (LIP) test in our national sports science laboratory under the guidance of an ERA sports scientist. One student per session will be selected to perform the test with an additional two students asked to volunteer to have their resting blood lactate level taken. Teachers will be provided with a test report showing the laboratory data to use in the class for discussion or SAC purposes.

Session topics include:

  • Classification of fatigue (central vs. local)
  • Identify each fatigue mechansim- fuel depletion, accumulation byproducts, thermoregulatory
  • Lactic acid production and hydrogen ion accumulation specific to energy system use
  • Apply each mechanism in relation to anaerobic vs. aerobic events (summary tables)
  • Discuss the multifactorial nature of fatigue using real examples & exam questions
  • Use your own student’s test data to graph and identify their LIP
  • Explain the affect of training on LIP using your student’s test data
