Exercise Physiology with Laboratory Methods

15 credits

In this course you will learn more about the physiological effects that occur in the body with exercise both in the short and long term (e.g. acclimatization) to different types of training, training intensities and to different environments. You will also learn to look at training from a sustainability, equality and ethical perspective. The other half of course is about integrating the theory into practical exercise physiology laboratory and field methods where analysis principles, technical execution, result assessment and quality assurance are important aspects. You will practice conducting tests of aerobic ability (e.g. submaximal and maximal oxygen uptake tests), anaerobic ability (e.g. power and strength) and measure muscle activity with electromyography. Laboratorium results are then reportedbased on analysis of collected data, temporary and systematic sources of error, and plausibility of the results.
