BSE207 Exercise Physiology provides students with the applied knowledge of the physiological and biochemical alterations occurring in the human body due to the physical stress of exercise. Emphasis is placed on understanding the functional changes that result from acute and chronic exercise. Laboratory sessions are included as a means to review and enhance understanding as students observe the physiological responses and adaptations that occur during physical activity and apply assessments used in the field of exercise physiology.
