EXS 31600 Physiology of Exercise Lab

This course is designed to introduce students to the field of exercise science with resources necessary for the application of material discussed during lecture. An overview includes topics on acute and chronic physiological responses to exercise, nutrition, biomechanics, and other concepts in wellness, physical fitness, and performance enhancement. Specifically, the laboratory experiments will focus on the following: circulatory and respiratory responses to exercise, respiratory metabolic measurements, identification of the lactate and ventilatory thresholds, assessment of maximal oxygen uptake, energy cost of physical activity, assessment of perceived exertion, and assessment of body composition. Lab fee required. Concurrent enrollment in EXS 31500.
