Learning Outcomes
Synthetic analysis and interdisciplinary approach to their biology practicing humans and animals. Highlighting the dialectical relationship between of the biological sciences of exercise (molecular biology, biochemistry, biophysics, physiology, statistics). The student will acquire a critical attitude against the modern concerns posed by exercise biology (eg the limits of biological information derived from blood tests) in order to more effectively exercise its role as physical education teacher.
