Introduction to Exercise Physiology
3 Credit Hours3 Lecture Hours
This course will introduce the student through lecture and practical demonstration to the fundamentals of exercise physiology. The topics will include cardiorespiratory, neuromuscular and endocrine anatomy; systems physiology; basic nutrition; metabolic pathways; and energy expenditure.
(A requirement that must be completed before taking this course.)
Upon successful completion of the course, the student should be able to:
- Explain the roles of the macronutrients and micronutrients found in food.
- Summarize carbohydrate, protein and lipid dynamics during exercise.
- Differentiate between the energy metabolic pathways.
- Explain energy expenditure at rest and during exercise.
- Explain the measurement of human energy expenditure.
- Describe the principles of gas exchange and transport.
- Differentiate the anatomy and physiology of the central and peripheral cardiovascular system at rest and during exercise.
- Differentiate the anatomy and physiology of the neuromuscular system at rest and during exercise.
- Differentiate the anatomy and physiology of the endocrine system at rest and during exercise.
- Conduct a basic nutrition review.
- Describe how the physical demands of a sport/position helps focus the conditioning program design for an athlete.
- Describe adenosine triphosphate (ATP) dynamics in energy transfer.
