ESSS 308 Exercise Physiology (4 credits)
In this course, students will advance their understanding of the human body’s physiological response to exercise. Topics include acute and chronic adaptations of the muscular, cardiovascular, respiratory, hormonal, and bioenergetics systems to exercise induced stress; training principles to induce specific adaptations; environmental influences on performance; and exercise for special populations. In the laboratory portion of the course students will practice the scientific method by assessing physiological capacities using the laboratory assessment methods.
