Exercise Physiology 101 provides a compelling overview of how the body adapts to the acute and chronic stresses imposed upon it by physical activity. The DVD details the acute and chronic responses of the body to exercise, as well as the functional changes that can accompany such responses. The DVD also explores the underlying precepts of the role of physical activity in the ACSM-sponsored initiative, Exercise is Medicine.

Among the topics covered:

• Selective recruitment patterns
• Ensuring ATP availability: the central issues in exercise physiology
• Redistribution of blood flow
• Overall control during exercise
• What is the cost of these responses?
• Molecular biology 101
• Exercise as a provocative test
• Exercise is medicine
