ATR 450 Physiology of Sport and Exercise

3 Credits

The cardiopulmonary response to exercise in normal and compromised adults as well as the effect of selected medications on exercise tolerance is examined. 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.

Prerequisite(s): ATR 240 , BIO 130 /BIO 135  and BIO 131 /BIO 136  or BIO 205 / BIO 215  and BIO 206  /BIO 216  , CHEM 101 /CHEM 111  (with a minimum grade of “C”). Concurrent with: ATR 455
