/Class Outline
This lecture discusses the importance of the physiological system (e.g., cardiovascular, neuromuscular and thermoregulatory) and particular topics related to athletes (e.g., how the environment affects their performance), recreational to elite sports. The students will learn the effects of exercise and conditions on specific systems.

Students will set their own research questions about adaptive response to exercise and collect research papers related to that question. Furthermore, students will learn the methodology of systematic review and cultivate the ability to draw conclusions about their question .
