The Science of Exercise

University of Colorado Boulder

Overview

We all know we should exercise. But what happens in our bodies when we do it, and why exactly is it good for us?

Dr. Robert S. Mazzeo is an associate professor at the Department of Integrative Physiology, University of Colorado, Boulder, and is a Fellow of the American College of Sports Medicine. In this course from CU Boulder, offered through Coursera, Mazzeo details the inner workings of exercise. Students learn about the metabolism of macronutrients, different physiological systems engaged through physical activity, the body's responses to strength and endurance training, and the effects of exercise on our health.

The course encourages students to apply the knowledge learned to improve their own exercise habits.
