Application of the principles of anatomy and physiology to the study of metabolic, respiratory, cardiovascular, musculoskeletal, and nervous system changes during exercise and physical activity. The student will gain an understanding of the acute and chronic adaptations of these systems and how to impose these adaptations. In addition, students will gain hands-on experience in the testing and measurement of individuals in an exercise physiology laboratory. This course is a three-hour lecture course with a two-hour lab section. (Formerly PHED 432) Prerequisite: PHED 208 or EXSC 214 (formerly PHED 214); EXSC 332 (formerly PHED 332) or PHED 304
