    Clinical exercise physiology provides students with the critical knowledge to be able to work in exercise and rehabilitation programs. Programs like this focuses on improving health and fitness of healthy individuals or to help rehabilitate individuals that suffer from different type of injuries or chronic diseases. Nevertheless. Students that are completing this program of clinical physiology are predominantly prepared to work as an exercise specialist in cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation programs. Also, students are able to enter a graduate study program in one of the many health professions such as Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy or as a Clinical Exercise Physiologist. Clinical Physiology is best described as a diagnostic specialty…

    The article, “Principles of Exercise Physiology: Responses to Acute Exercise and Long-term Adaptations to Training,” discusses how physical activity and fitness are significant aspects that lead to a lower prevalence of chronic diseases. Endurance training is frequently discussed as an example of the body’s reaction to an acute session of exercise, along with the benefits that lead to lifelong adaptations. A synopsis is given on muscle fiber types, skeletal muscle actions, and the main metabolic…

    Exercise Physiology It has long been thought that strenuous or prolonged exercise can affect the human’s endocrine system. This is an interesting scenario because endocrine system synthase performs as a negative feedback system. This means that when there is an unusually high level of a hormone in the blood, a signal will be sent back and production of that particular hormone will be stopped. The negative feedback system can easily keep all hormones levels at the optimal level for humans.…

    Aerobic Fitness Laboratory Report Ethan C. Bagwell University of Arkansas Introduction The problem addressed in this laboratory report is aerobic fitness and its association with cardiovascular disease and all cause mortality. Aerobic fitness is related to the ability to perform large muscle, dynamic, moderate to vigorous intensity exercise for prolonged periods of time (Thompson, Gordon, & Pescatello, 2014). Aerobic fitness has been considered a health-related part of physical fitness due to…

    Exercise is physical movement accomplished through the contraction of skeletal muscles. These contractions require significant amounts of energy and constitute a major physiological function. The energy for contractions is provided by ATP which can be synthesized from many different substrates.K The metabolic demands of skeletal muscle incurred through brief and acute exercise and be fulfilled through hydrolysis of creatine phosphate which provides energy to synthesize ATP from ADP. For longer…

    A measurement that measures the maximum volume that can be obtained by an individual is called VO2 max. VO2 physiology is two different categories 1) Utilization and 2) Delivery. Utilization is being able to extract and use oxygen. Delivery is about the transportation of oxygen cells either through the CVD or pulmonary system. VO2 is important for exercise and transporting oxygen to the muscles. VO2 max is important to health because it gives information on the function cardiac output of the…

    Our body functions and consumes gas (O2) differently at rest and in motion. Energy requirement to maintain the body’s condition at rest is very different than the energy requirement during maximal exercise. At rest, the muscle intake of gas is very little, but during activity, oxygen consumption is multiples due to the intense oxygen demands of the muscles. Other parameters that are expected to change during exercise are metabolic rate, heart rate and blood pressure, stroke volume, cardiac…

    Effects of Carbohydrate Ingestion Pre- Grip Strength Exercise on Muscle Endurance In the world of fitness, nutritional supplements are ingested with intent to maximize the results of strength exercise. In achieving favorable adaptations to exercise, sufficient nutrient consumption is critical. Also important is the timing of nutrient consumption, as greater benefits are observed when ingestion takes place in a time frame close to the exercise (Laurenson & Dubé, 2014). Previous literature…
