Course objectives
The goal of this subject is to provide the student with understanding of the physiology of exercise and sport. Exercise Physiology is intended for students of physical education, atheltic training, etc. In practical lessons is including work tests.
  • Theme of Lessons: Structure and function of skeletal muscle, skeletal muscle and exercise.
  • Structure and function of the nervous system. Neuromuscular adaptation to training.
  • Metabolism, energy, and basic energy systems. Metabolic adaptation to training.
  • Endocrine glans and their hormones. Hormonal response and adaptation to exercise.
  • Structure and function of the cardiovascular system, cardiovascular response and adaptation to exercise.
  • Scructure and function respiratory system, respiratory response and adaptation to excercise.
  • Termoregulation, responses and acclimatization to exercise in hot and cold environments.
  • Theme of practical lessons:
  • Energetic expenditure, basal metabolism
  • Measuring of Heart Rate in rest and stress test
  • Measuring of Blood Presure in rest and stress test, Cardiac Output
  • Spirometry
  • Testing of Anaerobic and Aerobic Ability (W170, Wingate test)
  • Measuring and determination of Ventilatory Threshold (VT)
  • Spiroergometry (Measuring of aerobic capacity, determine of maximum oxygen uptake)
