Students in Professor Danielle Wigmore's Exercise Physiology II course ascertain baseline statistics for their experiment to record possible physiological affects of beet root supplement after two weeks. The subject is given the supplement and instructions on dosage. The course is designed to cover physiological response to acute exercise and chronic adaptations to exercise. This part of the multi-phased lab based course examines the cardiovascular system, respiratory system, and the impact of different environmental conditions on exercise responses and capacity. It also introduces research methods in exercise science.
