EXSP 1010 is a three-credit exercise physiology course that provides students with a solid theoretical basis of exercise physiology as it relates to human movement, health, wellness, sport, and performance. Focus is placed on the practical application of exercise physiology principles including biomechanics, neuromuscular, metabolic, pulmonary, cardiovascular and endocrine responses to exercise and training. Additional focus on practical applications of performance enhancement techniques, interaction within a multidisciplinary team, and human adaptive responses to exercise is included. Utilizing interactive technology, through a series of knowledge assessments, reading assignments, interactive discussions, real-world application analysis, and research projects, students will demonstrate both exercise physiology core-concepts and exercise physiology applications.
Please note for this course you will be asked to perform physical activity at various points during this course. With the majority of our testing in this course, this will involve physical exertion and you should check with your medical professional before attempting any of these exercises to determine if you are well enough for physical exertion. If there is any concern, reach out to the instructor during the first week for alternate assignments for these activities (in Weeks 8 and 9).
