Course content

The course provides an introduction to fundamental physiological processes related to metabolism, circulation, respiration, and muscle work related to physical activity and exercise. Regulatory mechanisms of various physiological processes will be addressed. In addition to the lectures, assignments and demonstrations (such as measurement and evaluation of physiological responses during physical activity) both individually and in groups, will be used to illustrate the theoretical perspectives.

Learning outcome

The student can describe and explain the basic physiological processes associated with energy release, circulation, respiration and muscle activity, and how these processes are regulated and altered by physical activity in the context of physical fitness and health. The student can apply, reflect on, and disseminate knowledge about physiological processes in physical activity related to physical fitness and health.

Learning methods and activities

Up to 84 hours of lectures/exercises/group work. Exchange students interested in the course must consult the Department for possible admission.

Compulsory assignments

  • 70% participation in exercises and groupwork
