BIOL 301 - Exercise Physiology (3)

Prerequisites: BIOL 101  and BIOL 101L BIOL 102  and BIOL 102L .
This course reviews the muscle cell anatomy and physiology and examines the physiologic responses to various types of exercise (endurance, strengthening) and the systems involved (musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, pulmonary, renal, endocrine, metabolic). The thermoregulatory system and the effects on the environment, as well as the physiological responses based on the influence of age, genetics, and culture on resting measurements and responses to activity are also examined. Adaptations to regular exercise of various types and to diminished activity as well as the effect of nutritional intake are studied. Basic principles of exercise testing, assessment and interpretation of measurements of body composition, and exercise prescription to improve cardiovascular fitness are also discussed.
