Exercise physiology concepts are at the foundation of human movement. The content you are
learning in the course can be applied to any activity to explain why the body works the way it
does. The purpose of this project is for you to apply concepts learned during the course to a
selected physical activity / exercise in terms of the physiological adjustments and adaptations
that occur during exercise.
Choose an exercise activity or sport that you participate in, watch on a regular basis, or have an
interest in analyzing. Select the specific position if choosing a sport. Submit your idea to the
instructor for approval. If your project is not approved, it may receive a grade of zero. If you are
retaking this course, you must select a different topic. You may not use any work that you have
submitted for another class.
I. Describe the activity in detail (assume the instructor has no knowledge of the activity).
II. Analyze the exercise / sport from an exercise physiology perspective. When applicable,
include typical / realistic physiological values in your response.
A. Metabolism
a. What is the predominant energy system being used? What is the contribution
of the other energy systems? Justify your responses.
b. What is the predominant fuel being utilized? If RER could be measured,
would be a typical RER during participation on this activity? Justify your
c. Describe what training methods you would use to improve the metabolic
performance in this activity.
B. Cardiovascular
a. What changes occur in heart rate throughout the activity? Describe the
physiological mechanisms that cause HR to change for this activity.
b. What changes would stroke volume change during participation of the
activity? Describe the physiological mechanisms that cause SV to change for
this activity.
c. What changes in cardiac output would occur during participation of the
activity and why?
d. What is the blood pressure response during this type of activity and why?
e. What long-term (chronic) adaptations might occur in resting and exercise
heart rate, stroke volume and cardiac output as a result of continued
participation in the activity.
