HSC 450 Physiology of Sport and Exercise

3 Credits

By emphasizing physiologic principles, as well as how the body reacts to activity and training, students gain a working knowledge of human activity.  The goal of the class is to provide students with an up-to-date understanding of the human body and how systems react to training and nutrition.  The course’s lab activities allow students to receive practical experiences in conjunction with lecture topics.  Areas of study include, but are not limited to, energy transfer, energy expenditure at rest and during activity, nutrition basics, pulmonary function, cardiovascular dynamics, neuromuscular systems, endocrine influences on exercise, training principles, adaptations to training, pharmacologic agents, thermoregulation, body condition, and weight control.
