Competency aims

The aim of the course is that you understand the
structure and function of the human body during
exercise as well as the physiological effects and
adaptation processes of physical activity and
training. You know the physiological background
of different physical qualities and can take into
account the importance of physical activity for
health. In addition, you can explain and argue
over how exercise affects the physiological
functions in the human body and its importance
for the functional capacity and performance. You
master flexibly different measurement methods in
exercise physiology and can critically choose and
use them. You understand the meaning of physical
activity and exercise training as a resource for
the development of human health, functional
capacity and performance. You can learn and
cooperate together with your peers and share
information with them.

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
  • Describe how the body's regulation mechanisms
    function during exercise
  • Compare different exercises and physical
    qualities and their effects on the body
  • Describe what performance development is
    physiologically based on
  • Execute basic measurements in exercise
    physiology both at rest and during exercise
  • Write a report about practical measurements
    in exercise physiology
  • Take into account the importance of physical
    activity and training for different people

Course contents

In the course we discuss physiology in healthy
individuals during acute and chronic exercise.

We concentrate on

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