ESS 3317:   Exercise Physiology M-W 2:00-3:20 Spring 2012 Instructor: Allison Abel Office: Jowers Center, Room B132 E-mail: [email protected] Phone: 512-245-2246 Office Hours: Tues/Thurs 2:00-3:30 Course Description: This course provides an overview of the acute and chronic physiological responses to physical activity  and exercise. Emphasis is placed on muscle bioenergetics, muscle contractile properties, optimizing  human performance through training and supplementation as well as understanding cardiopulmonary  and endocrine responses to physical activity and exercise. Prerequisite: BIO 2430 or equivalent. Co- requisite: ESS 3117.  ( Note : ESS 3117 and ESS 3317 must be taken the same semester. If you drop  one, you must drop the other). Course Goals and Objectives: The overall goal of this course is for students to understand how the body performs and responds to  high physiological demands of physical activity and exercise. To this end, students will be able to:  1. Provide a rationale as to why an Exercise and Sports Science major/minor should understand and regularly utilize  the concepts of exercise physiology to help guide them when they work with their clients to provide physical  activity and exercise advice. 2. Identify the systems involved in maintaining homeostasis and describe their role. 3. Describe the roles of the neuromuscular system in regulating the exercise response. 4. Identify the primary hormones involved in regulating the exercise response and describe the acute and chronic  exercise response to these hormones. 5. Indentify the adaptations that occur in the hormonal system as a result of exercise training. 6. Summarize the process of cellular respiration for the production of ATP from carbohydrate, fat, and protein fuel  substrates. 7. Compare the relative use of carbohydrate, fat, and protein fuel substrates on the basis of intensity and duration of  exercise. 8. Describe the exercise continuum as it relates to varying durations of maximal maintainable exercise. 9. Provide examples of physical activities, exercise, and sports in which the ATP-PCr, lactic, or oxidative system  predominates.  10. Describe the metabolic adaptations that normally occur as a result of training. Course Evaluation: Preparedness At the university level, students are expected to devote two to three hours outside of class, studying,  reading, and doing assignments, for every hour that they spend in the classroom. There are a little more than 2.67 hours of  lecture each week. Thus, students should anticipate spending 5 to 8 hours each week outside of class studying, reading,  etc.
