Course Description for Exercise Physiology and Laboratory Techniques
Exercise Physiology and Laboratory Techniques
Description: This course will present rudimentary and intermediate physiological processes in the field of exercise physiology. The course will focus on cardiorespiratory fitness, energy balance, body composition, metabolism, and muscle physiology. The laboratory experiences will focus on metabolic testing (VO2, resting metabolic rate, lactate, thermoregulation), contrasting various body composition methodology, and exercise prescription.
