Competency aims

The aim of the course is that the student gets a general view of body's structure and function during exercise. The student familiarizes with basic exercise physiology and physiological effects of physical activity. The student knows the physiological background of different physical qualities, understands the adaptational processes in the body after physical training and knows how exercise affects the physiological functions in the human body. In addition, the student develops his/her general competences by learning together and cooperating in a group and by sharing information and own knowledge with others.

Learning outcomes

At the end of the course the student is expected to be able to - Explain the basic concepts in exercise physiology - Understand and describe metabolism in different exercise performances - Describe body's acute physiological responses and chronic adaptations to different kind of physical activity - Know the basic regulation mechanisms (nervous system and hormonal system) in exercise physiology - Understand what performance development is physiologically based on - Execute basic measurements in exercise physiology - Write a report about practical measurements in exercise physiology

Course contents

- Basic principles of exercise physiology - Function of the neuromuscular system during exercise - Metabolism - Function of the cardiorespiratory system during exercise - Hormonal system - Training effects
