KN 381 - Exercise Physiology (3)

An in-depth study of human bioenergetics, neuromuscular control of movement, and cardiorespiratory function. Emphasis is placed on reinforcing important physiological concepts (i.e. flow down gradients, cell-cell communication, homeostasis) and general principles of exercise training (i.e. individuality, specificity, reversibility, progressive overload, variation).  Understanding how the body responds to physical stressors is essential to individualizing exercise prescription for health and fitness, program design for team performance, and modifying training according to environmental influences. Prerequisites: BI 220  with a “C” or higher and Junior standing. FA.
