4 Credit Hours
Pre-requisites: BIO 212, EXS 350. An in-depth survey of the neuromuscular, metabolic cardiorespiratory and hormonal responses to acute exercise and the physiological adaptations to chronic exercise. This course builds upon the foundational sciences of chemistry, anatomy, physiology, and physics. Topics will include oxygen delivery and utilization, energy systems, and training adaptations in different environments. We will also focus on how the metabolic, meuromuscular, cardiovascular, and respiratory systems respond to the demands of exercise and how routine exercise (i.e. exercise training) modifies these systems, and the significance of these effects for health and performance. The lab portion of this class will focus on the standard measurements in exercise physiology.
