PT 917 - Exercise Physiology

(2)
This class is designed to give students a fundamental knowledge of the acute and chronic responses to exercise. Particular attention will be placed upon understanding the mechanisms of how these responses occur. The course begins with an overview of homeostasis, bioenergetics and metabolism. The class then enters into the specific areas of endocrinology, neuromuscular, circulatory and respiratory exercise physiology. Finally the class explores environmental exercise physiology, training, performance and ergogenic aids. The overriding concept throughout the course will be how the body attempts to maintain “homeostasis” in light of the disturbance caused by exercise.
