Department of Kinesiology Spring, 2010 San Jose State University Dr. Craig J. Cisar Office:  SPX 105 Telephone:  924-3018; E-mail:  cisar@kin.sjsu.edu Office Hours:  Posted outside of office (SPX 105) and by appointment  Webpage:  http://www.sjsu.edu/people/craug.cisar/courses/kin155/ KIN 155 - Exercise Physiology Course Description Exercise Physiology examines the physiological responses and adaptations of the human organism to physical activity.  Considerable emphasis is given toward understanding how the body functions during exercise and adapts to long-term  training.  Topics related to neuromuscular physiology, bioenergetics, cardiorespiratory physiology, circulation,  neuroendocrinology, and cellular developmental traits will be presented and interrelated.  In addition, the physiological  effects of factors such as age, gender, body composition, and the environment on human performance will be discussed.  Lectures and discussions will focus on applying the information from these topics into a framework for conditioning  programs designed to improve performance and promote health enhancement. Prerequisites KIN 70 - Introduction to Kinesiology, Bio 66 – Human Physiology, Chem 30A - Introductory Chemistry, and a general  education mathematics course (Area B4), or equivalents. Course Objectives Following successful completion of this course, students will be able to:  1. identify and explain the basic physiological responses and training  adaptations to physical activity. 2. analyze and identify the physiological requirements of sports and physical activities. 3. identify and explain various physiological factors limiting performance of various sports and physical  activities. 4. sensitively identify and explain age, gender, cultural, and other individual differences that may exist in  physiological responses, training adaptations, and performance capabilities in various sports and physical activities. 5. identify and explain the basic components of conditioning programs designed to improve performance and  promote health enhancement. 6. identify and describe equipment used to measure and evaluate various physiological aspects of human  performance. 7. analyze and interpret physiological data collected from various  laboratory tests and procedures.
