BIOL 220 - Exercise Science


Credits: Three (3)
Prerequisite: BIOL 101 and BIOL 102, or BIOL-115, or BIOL-117 and BIOL-118
Exercise Physiology is designed to provide students with the current state of knowledge in the physiology of exercise. A systematic approach to how the body responds to exercise will give students with a thorough and critical analysis of the acute physiological responses to exercise and the adaptations that occur with organized exercise training. Basic factual information will be covered with a major emphasis on mechanisms underlying how the different systems of the body respond to exercise stress. General topics that will be discussedinclude bioenergetics and metabolism, measurement of work, power and energy expenditure, respiratory system, cardiovascular system, endocrine system, muscular system, and physiology of training, conditioning, and performance. Lab component is integrated into the course.
