Addendum to Course Description
This class will cover exercise and the metabolic, endocrine, pulmonary, cardiovascular, and neuromuscular systems in detail. In addition, students will gain an understanding of the field of exercise physiology. The format of this class will be lecture, class discussion, group work, and/or discussions. You are encouraged to ask questions and are expected to engage in class discussion. Students need to be self-motivated in this class and keep up with course material throughout the term. This course is designed to enhance student’s ability to think critically and display knowledge effectively through various written examination methods.
Intended Outcomes for the course
Upon completion of the course students should be able to:
- Integrate knowledge of human physiology from the cellular level to the whole exercising body and apply those key concepts when educating others about fitness and training.
- Explain the physiological mechanisms responsible for adaptations during acute exercise and after chronic exercise to clients in a succinct, clear, and effective manner.
- Explore current applications and critically evaluate unresolved issues in exercise physiology to gain additional or more complex knowledge.
Outcome Assessment Strategies
• Assignments • Quizzes • Exams • In-Class Learning Activities
Course Content (Themes, Concepts, Issues and Skills)
1. Metabolic energy systems, cardiovascular system, endocrine system, pulmonary system, neuromuscular systems – basic physiology, acute exercise adaptations. 2. Identify, define, and apply key terms used in exercise physiology. 3. Recognize and interpret the effects of chronic exercise training on the metabolic, cardiovascular, pulmonary, endocrine, skeletal muscle, and neuromuscular systems. 4. Effectively communicate in writing and speech your knowledge of exercise physiology. 5. Apply current research findings and issues as they relate to course topics. 6. Identify physiological differences among diverse exercising and training populations.
