Introduction to Exercise Physiology
This course is for students interested in health fields, sports, and exercise. In this course students will be introduced to the concepts and science behind exercise physiology. Students will learn introductions to basic bio mechanics, nutrition, muscle cell structure, energy pathway systems, adaptations to aerobic and anaerobic exercise, and training principles for muscle fiber types. Practical skills learned will include program design, pre-exercise evaluation, and exercise testing. In this course students will participate in labs which will consist of hands on learning to perform physical assessments and exercise testing. Students will also participate in hands on learning in a cardiac rehab setting.
