To expose students to basic concepts and principles of physiology as it theoretically and practically applies to exercise.
Students will be able to:
- explain how homeostasis and steady state are maintained through biological control systems during exercise;
- explain how energy transfer through the bioenergetic pathways occur during exercise;
- determine the work, power and energy expenditure during exercise on ergometers;
- explain the type and functioning of skeletal muscle;
- explain circulatory and respiratory adaptations during exercise;
- define acid-base balance during exercise;
- explain thermoregulation during exercise.
Introduction to the following concepts as they are applied in exercise:
