KIN 155 - Exercise Physiology
Exercise Physiology examines the physiological responses and adaptations of the human organism to physical activity. Considerable emphasis is given toward understanding how the body functions during exercise and adapts to long-term training. Topics related to neuromuscular physiology, bioenergetics, cardiorespiratory physiology, circulation, neuroendocrinology, and cellular developmental traits will be presented and interrelated. In addition, the physiological effects of factors such as age, gender, body composition, and the environment on human performance will be discussed. Lectures and discussions will focus on applying the information from these topics into a framework for conditioning programs designed to improve performance and promote health enhancement.
