BI 201 - Exercise Physiology


This lecture course employs a scientific approach to the study of sport and exercise by examining the connections between human athletic performance, the anatomical structure of the body, and the physiological processes that allow the body to function in an efficient manner. Topics covered will include the anatomy and physiology of the skeletal, muscular, respiratory, and cardiovascular systems as they relate to athletic performance; effects of athletic training on the structure and function of the human body; techniques for fitness assessment and performance optimization in sport; and exercise and athletics as critical elements of a healthy lifestyle. In addition to gaining a scientific understanding of the effects of exercise, students will be taught practical methods for examining their own personal fitness.

Three hours of lecture each week for one semester. Four credits.

Prerequisite(s): General Biology (BI 103  - BI 104 ) or Human Anatomy & Physiology I and II (BI 331  - BI 332 ) with an average grade of C (2.0) or better.
