Exercise provides a critical stimulus that results in both structural and functional adaptations. This course is designed to provide students with a broad understanding of the human body’s physiological response to exercise, including both acute adjustments and chronic adaptations that occur in response to physical training. Special attention will be given to the skeletal muscle metabolic and cardiorespiratory systems, and the integrative manner in which these systems adapt to maintain cellular homeostasis during exercise. This course will apply this knowledge in the context of both sport performance and human health.
