General Information

Overview

This unit examines responses and adaptations of various physiological body systems to exercise. Specifically, you will learn the physiological mechanisms underpinning acute and chronic changes in the metabolic, pulmonary, cardiovascular, endocrine, and neuromuscular systems as a response to exercise. Furthermore, you will learn how physiological function relating to exercise changes across the lifespan and in different environments. You will also develop practical skills in conducting and interpreting laboratory and field tests assessing physiological function, fitness, and performance.
