Course Description

This course will briefly explain physiological functions and fundamentals of sport and exercise physiology in the context of performance, fitness and survival. Measurement of performance and how physiological and metabolic adaptations alter performance, health and survival will be examined. The effects of environmental conditions, nutrition, health, gender and age will all be considered. Basics of human conditioning will also be covered, with an emphasis on the physiological differences between basic conditioning principles in relation to training outcomes and their physiological backgrounds.  The course is a science course covering basic biology, biochemistry, physiology and biomedical science related to Sport and Exercise Science.  Some fundamental knowledge and interest in these subject areas is recommended.
