Exercise Physiology By Mike Penque
What is exercise physiology/science? Exercise physiology is the study of how exercise alters the structure and function of the human body. It requires diverse knowledge and considerable study of various physiologic responses to exercise. Topics studied in exercise physiology include human energy transfer, human energy expenditure, evaluation of energy-generating capacities, the nervous system, pulmonary system, the cardiovascular system, endocrine system and the interaction of these, plus training methods,environmental effects on physiology, and ergogenic acids.
Degrees in Exercise Physiology Several local Colleges offer degrees in Exercise Physiology/Science. So of which would include D’Youville, UB and Brockport. Some of the courses include Exercise and Sports science. Principles of First aid(primarily designed to familiarize students with understanding procedures regarding the immediate and temporary care of athletic and sports related injuries occurring within exercise settings), and Exercise Evaluation (designed to familiarize students with the hands-on training and theoretical background needed to competently assess levels of physical fitness)Its typically 4 years for a bachelors and 6 years for a masters degree
