Learning activities and teaching methods
Monologic (reading, lecture, briefing), Dialogic (discussion, interview, brainstorming), Demonstration, Laboratory
Learning outcomes
Cardiovascular, respiratory and musculatural responses and adaptation to exercise. Exercising Musile. Metabolism and bioenergetics. Neural and hormonal control of exercising Musile. Environmental influences on performance. Exercise training. Children and adolescents in sport and exercise.
Students will understand the complex relationship between human physiology and exercise, Knowledge of response and adaptation to exercise and knowledge of age physiology differences allows students to practice sport and exercise in the teaching process.
