Exercise and Training

Prolonged exercise and arduous training is common in those working within stressful environments. Although necessary to bring about positive physical and mental improvements too much exercise or training can bring about illness, injury and psychological stress which ultimately leads to poor health and performance. The Extremes Research Group has comprehensive understanding of the physiological, psychological and motor control demands of military training, and numerous outdoor sports.  We have completed a number of research studies with the Armed services to optimise training and operational performance.
