    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The lectures can be tough since there is so much information to learn, made worse by the fact that it's at 8am in the morning; however, the professor is very knowledgable and is very willing to share his experiences during office hours. I was fortunate to have an amazing Graduate Student teach our lab, so we would always go to her for help and clarification. Too bad she's not at Berkeley anymore. I believe she's teaching at St. Mary's now. You know a graduate student is awesome, very knowledgeable, and very helpful when students from other lab sections come to her for help.

    Course highlights:

    The labs are really engaging and really reinforced the concepts taught in class. The one thing that stood out to me the most was why temperature and humidity can affect the individual during workout and the physiological concepts behind it.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Try to pay attention in class and ask a lot of questions when you don't understand something. Take advantage of office hours. If you're fortunate enough to have an amazing graduate student teach the lab, DO NOT WASTE THAT OPPORTUNITY!

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The professor is extremely knowledgeable and one of the leaders and pioneers in the field of biology, physiology, and exercise science. While the amount of information can sometimes be overwhelming, the professor willingly helps each and every student who seeks it. Professor's office hours are extremely beneficial and take advantage of the GSI's as well. I was fortunate to have an amazing GSI who really cared about us and wanted us to succeed. Highly recommend this course.

    Course highlights:

    Because I learn better through a lab environment where I can apply the newly acquired knowledge, being able to immediately apply and conceptualize what we learned in lecture through engaging and dynamic labs was the biggest highlight for me in the course. One of the main things I took away from the course was the concept of "Live High, Train Low" where it described how athletes greatly benefit from living at a higher altitude and training at a lower altitude. Living high allows the human body to naturally create more red blood cells in order to carry more oxygen in the body - assisting in training. While training low - yet some research suggest training at a little bit of altitude is beneficial as well - allows the athlete to train hard and longer without entering a state of fatigue as quickly.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Work hard and put in effort like you would with in any other class, but also have fun in the course also. Really take the time to learn the concepts instead of cramming and memorizing pages of information. Ask a lot of questions - appropriate ones of course - and make sure you ask very specific questions about the content rather than very general and vague ones. The professor can easily tell whether you're prepared or not.
