AHP 450 - Advanced Exercise Metabolism

Prerequisites, CHEM 140 , CHEM 140L , CHEM 150 , CHEM 150L BIOL 204 , BIOL 205 HSCI 210 AHP 350 HSCI 365 HSCI 366  and applied human physiology or health sciences major. CHEM 230  recommended, not required. This advanced level course will cover the metabolic and cellular responses to acute and chronic exercise. Specific detail will be paid to exercise energetics and the interrelationship between the three primary energy systems and the intermediates involved in metabolic pathway inter-regulation. Selected principles from biochemistry, exercise physiology and nutrition will be incorporated into the context of exercise and exercise performance. The current scientific research covering the biochemical, metabolic, cellular and endocrine changes involved in acute and chronic exercise will be explored. (Offered every semester.) 3 credits
