Course description
  PHYSIOLOGY OF EXERCISE

Competencies and objectives

 

Course context for academic year 2022-23

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.
