This course will study the physiological response of the body’s systems to a bout of exercise and the adaptations that occur to these systems with training. Systems studied include the energy producing systems, as well as the muscular, pulmonary, neuroendocrine, cardiovascular, skeletal and immune systems. This course will emphasize how these physiological systems are integrated together to maintain the body’s internal environment in response to the stress of the exercise. The course includes a weekly two-hour lab. Materials fee applies.
