approach to how the human body responds to exercise will provide students with a critical analysis of the acute physiological responses to exercise and the chronic adaptations that occur with regular exercise training An emphasis will be placed on the mechanisms underlying the response of different systems of the body to exercise When appropriate attention will be given to how these responses vary in different segments of the population General topics to be covered include bioenergetics and metabolism measurement of work power and energy expenditure the respiratory cardiovascular and muscular systems thermoregulation and the physiology of training and performance Lecture Lab Times LECTURE Tue and Thur 11 30 am 12 20 pm Herter Hall Rm 227 LAB Lab 1 Tues 1 00 2 30 pm Lab 2 Tues 2 30 4 00 pm
