Learning Outcomes
Providing graduate students with specialized and up-to-date knowledge on new research data of exercise physiology and ergometry. Specifically, knowledge on the contribution and interplay of energy systems during exercise of different intensities. Adaptations of the oxygen transportation and consumption system with exercise. Limiting factors of maximal oxygen uptake, its biological value and assessment. Study of various physiological systems at rest and exercise.
