Faculties and centres
The Exercise Physiology subject aims to establish the physiological bases of functioning, and the responses and adaptations, of each of the systems that make up the human organism in the face of physiological stress such as physical exercise. It is closely linked with other subjects that make up the Basic Subject of Biology, especially those taught in the first year of the Degree in Physical Activity and Sports Sciences (Basic Physiology and Kinesiology of Movement, Anatomy for Physical Activity and Exercise and Biomechanics of Physical Activity). Due to its basic nature, it is also widely related to other compulsory and optional subjects of the study plan, and which as a whole, will allow the acquisition of the general and specific skills of the Degree and thus guarantee the acquisition of professional profiles, in particular, Physical Activity and Health, Sports Training, and Teaching Physical Education and Sports.

Specific Competences (CE)
The main objective of this subject is to make known and understand the physiological mechanisms of importance in the performance of physical activity, both at the muscular level and in the adjustments that allow the individual to maintain homeostasis in a situation of great energy demand.
