Introduction

Physiology is the biological science which deals with the functioning of humans in good health, focusing at the level of whole systems, their organs and the cells of which they are comprised. In the case of exercise, the study of physiology looks at the acute responses and chronic adaptations to a wide-range of physical exercise conditions. A sports physiologist studies these responses in athletes, in response to training and competition, to enhance and refine overall fitness and athletic performance.
