The study of human physiological responses and adaptations to acute and chronic exercise/work. Cardiorespiratory, cellular and metabolic adaptations will be studied and discussed in detail. Students with credit for KIN 310 may not take this course for further credit.


This course examines the study of human physiological responses and adaptations to acute and chronic exercise or work, with particular focus on cardiorespiratory, cellular, and metabolic adaptations. We cover how the body accommodates the increased demands associated with exercise or work, the mechanisms and consequences of adaptation to repeated bouts of exercise or work training, how the body's responses to exercise or work require a coordinated integration of physiological systems, the effects of environmental factors on the physiological responses to exercise or work, and how to assess the physical demands of exercise or work.

Registrar Notes:

SFU’s Academic Integrity web site is filled with information on what is meant by academic dishonesty, where you can find resources to help with your studies and the consequences of cheating.  Check out the site for more information and videos that help explain the issues in plain English.

Each student is responsible for his or her conduct as it affects the University community.  Academic dishonesty, in whatever form, is ultimately destructive of the values of the University. Furthermore, it is unfair and discouraging to the majority of students who pursue their studies honestly. Scholarly integrity is required of all members of the University.
