FTNS 218 Human Performance I Cardio & Respiratory Systems

4 credits
This course examines the adaptations of the cardiovascular and respiratory systems to aerobic and anaerobic training modalities. Acute and chronic adaptations as a result of sub-maximal, maximal, and resistance training programs will be explored in depth.

Prerequisites: FTNS 112 , BIOL& 175 .

Quarters Offered: Winter

Student Outcomes/Competencies:
Upon successful completion of this course students will be able to:

  • Describe cardiovascular and respiratory physiological adaptations that occur during sub-maximal and maximal exercise following acute and chronic training
  • Identify the differences between adaptations to aerobic and anaerobic training
  • Describe the benefits of training on the cardiovascular and respiratory systems
  • Explain the use of heart-rate as a method for training
