Exercise physiology draws together exercise science and physiology in the study of how the body adapts to physical movement. It is believed to have originated in ancient Greece by Herodicus.
Additional recommended knowledge
Topics studied in exercise physiology include human energy transfer, human energy expenditure, evaluation of energy-generating capacities, the nervous system pulmonary system, the cardiovascular system, the musculoskeletal system, endocrine system (including hormones) and the interaction of these, plus training methods, environmental effects on physiology, and ergogenic aids.
Exercise physiologists tend to specialise into either health and fitness or exercise rehabilitation streams with exercise used as a treatment strategy in physical rehabilitation, prevention of disease, and work conditioning.
