My Notes on Massive Open Online Course:
Science of Exercise
In this course you will learn about a number of significant adjustments required by your body in order to properly respond to the physical stress imposed during a single bout of exercise. These responses will include changes in carbohydrate, fat and protein metabolism as well as a number of important physiological systems. Nutritional considerations, causes of muscle soreness & fatigue and effectiveness of performance enhancing drugs will also be addressed. Additionally, you will learn about many of the long-term training adaptations associated with participation in a program of regular exercise.

Principles in Exercise Physiology
1 Vocabulary Words I Learned in this Course:
homeostasis, n. the tendency of the body to maintain a stable internal environment for cells by narrowly regulating critical variables, e.g. pH (acid/base balance), oxygen tension, blood glucose concentration, and body temperature  "Any disruption to optimal homeostatic conditions will elicite multiple regulatory responses by the body in an attempt to bring disrupted variables back to normal, for example, when you ascend a high altitude, due to the low oxygen pressure in the inspired air, oxygen levels in your body drop below desired levels, and as a result, your nervous, endocrine, cardiovascular, and respitory systems make adjustments in an attempt to compensate for this disruption."
