Overview / Use Cases: This book was designed to accompany undergraduate Exercise Physiology textbooks which are either applied or more clinically based. Each chapter provides multiple methods to measure the physiologic parameters for the relevant topic. This provides options which are aligned with applied and advanced outcomes. With that in mind, there are three main reasons this manual was created: 1) currently no other manual exists that allows students to apply both basic and advanced testing assessments for Exercise Physiology, 2) other manuals do not include exercises for endocrine responses, thermoregulation, resting and exercise metabolism, etc. and 3) to provide instructors with quizzing capabilities to help students better prepare for and apply the concepts in the lab to physiologic principles. 

Structure: Each chapter focuses upon the different core concepts of Exercise Physiology. An overview of the chapter content is included here.

Quiz Platform: The book comes with an accompanying quiz platform. Pre-lab quizzes better ensure that students come ready to perform testing in the lab, and lower the probability of unpreparedness and/or not fully comprehending the concepts being tested each day. Post-lab quizzes are also available to check for understanding of the material. This pedagogical approach achieves a higher reach on Bloom’s Taxonomy and helps to bring closure to the content.  

Format: The content is presented in an online-only version. The reason is three-fold. First, it is more cost effective for students. Second, students tend to prefer using a tablet and stylus pencil to interact with the text and write in their data as they are performing the testing. Third, it is simpler to turn their work into the course’s learning management system, which in turn makes it easier for instructors to grade.
