BPEd 123 11:30 MWF Physiology of Exercise and Physical Activity

The course provides an understanding of the physiologic responses of the body to the acute and chronic stresses of exercise and training stimuli, and the adaptations that result from these. Students are expected to: (1) define the physiological responses and adaptations to exercise and training of different types, intensifies and duration; and (2) report and interpret physiological data and refute the fallacies usually associated with exercise performance; (3) discuss the mechanisms and effects of exercise and physical activity on pathology.
