BIO 201: Physiology of Exercise
The purpose of this course is to introduce the basic principles of exercise physiology, including the physiological responses to acute and chronic exercise, the impact of heat, altitude and other environmental stressors on exercise performance and safety, and the metabolic basis for measurements of oxygen uptake during exercise. The role of each body system in strength and endurance exercise performance will be considered as well as the effects of regular exercise on health and aging.
