The course studies the acute and chronic effects of exercise on the human condition as well as the anatomical and physiological interactions necessary to perform exercise. Adaptive responses to exercise will included the musculoskeletal, neuromuscular, cardiovascular, endocrine and respiratory system. Attention will be given to bioenergetics and nutrition. In addition, training for sport and thermoregulation during exercise will be examined. Three lecture hours and two laboratory hours per week. Laboratory experience will introduce students to advanced measurements techniques in exercise physiology with a focus on the measurements of acute responses to exercise with a metabolic cart. Required of ATR and SMS Majors with concentrations in Exercise Science and Physical Education. Not open to students who have received credit for BIO324. Prerequisites: BIO200-201 or BIO206 or permission of Department Chairperson.
