BIO107 HUMBIO 136

BIO 107/HUM BIO 136: Exercise Physiology Laboratory

Spring 2019   Tues and Thurs 1:30 to 5:20.

 

This laboratory course in Human Exercise Physiology is active and inquiry based, as students explore relationships between exercise, fatigue, and core body temperature. One of the questions to be researched this spring is:  "What is the relationship between core body temperature and work levels on lactate production during exercise."

Students will be both experimenters and subjects of the experiments in two-person teams. They must be in good physical condition and must be willing to participate in STRENUOS exercise routines under ADVERSE environmental conditions. Varsity athletes concurrently participating in a spring sport must consult the instructor before applying. The class meets BOTH Tues and Thurs from 1:30 to 5:20 PM.  Half of each class will be devoted to exercising; half to discussion. Discussion sessions include student presentations of journal articles, data analyses, and planning and providing feedback on team WIM video projects. Because you will be part of a team, it is important that you attend all classes and have a positive attitude about exercising.

Enrollment does NOT require an application this year.  However, enrollment will be capped at 20 students total (between BIO107 and HUMBIO136) with 10 on the wait list. PLEASE SIGN UP ONLY if you are serious about participating in this course and can make both T and Th sessions.
